Beijing 2022 Olympische medailles

By Phil Bainbridge

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - The 2022 winter Olympic Games, officially known as the XXIV Olympic Winter Games, take place in Beijing, China. There will be 109 medal events, with at least 327 medals being awarded in total.

The medals, named “Tong Xin” or ”together as one”, are composed of rings and a centre, based on the ancient Chinese jade concentric circle pendants, with five rings embodying the Chinese philosophy of harmony between heaven, earth and human beings.

The design echoes the jade-inlaid medals of the Olympic Summer Games of 2008, as Beijing becomes the first “dual Olympic city” to host both summer and winter Games.
