By on December 14, 2021 0

Team USA will include more than 200 athletes at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, which opens on February 4.

So far, 26 athletes have qualified or been nominated to the team. Athletes are not officially part of the team until they have been approved by the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee.

More Americans will qualify for the Winter Games through Olympic trials, national and international competitions and discretionary selections in skiing, skating, sliding, curling and ice hockey until the end of January.

The full men’s and women’s hockey teams are expected to be named in late December or early January.

The figure skating team, made up entirely of discretionary selections, is expected to be announced after the national championships conclude on January 9.

The alpine ski team will be decided via a mix of automatic and discretionary places depending on the results of the World Cup this season until January 16.
