The rise of Asian nations in Winter Olympics sports is due in part to the growth of winter sports programmes and the interest in winter sports in nations such as South Korea, Japan and China.
Sochi , Russia, was selected as the host city for the Winter Olympics over Salzburg , Austria, and Pyeongchang , South Korea.
This was the first time that Russia had hosted a Winter Olympics. The Olympic Village and Olympic Stadium were located on the Black Sea coast. All of the mountain venues were 50 kilometres 31 miles away in the alpine region known as Krasnaya Polyana.
Snowboarder Ayumu Hirano became the youngest medallist on snow at the Winter Games when he took a silver in the halfpipe competition at the age of fifteen.
On the ice, the Dutch dominated the speed skating events, taking 23 medals, four clean sweeps of the podium places and at least one medal in each of the twelve medal events.
Ireen Wüst was their most successful competitor, taking two golds and three silvers. In figure skating, Yuzuru Hanyu became the first skater to break the point barrier in the short programme on the way to winning the gold medal.
Among the sledding disciplines, luger Armin Zöggeler took a bronze, becoming the first Winter Olympian to secure a medal in six consecutive Games.
A subsequent investigation commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency led by Richard McLaren concluded that a state-sponsored doping programme had operated in Russia from "at least late to " across the "vast majority" of Summer and Winter Olympic sports.
On 6 July , Pyeongchang , South Korea, was selected to host the Winter Olympics over Munich , Germany, and Annecy , France. The Games took place from 9 to 25 February More than 2, athletes from 92 countries participated in events.
The Olympic Stadium and many of the sports venues were situated in the Alpensia Resort in Daegwallyeong-myeon , Pyeongchang, while a number of other sports venues were located in the Gangneung Olympic Park in Pyeongchang's neighboring city of Gangneung.
The lead-up to the Winter Olympics was affected by the tensions between North and South Korea and the ongoing Russian doping scandal.
Despite tense relations , North Korea agreed to participate in the Games, enter with South Korea during the opening ceremony as a unified Korea , and field a unified team in women's ice hockey.
Russian athletes, who complied with the IOC's doping regulations, were given the option to compete in Pyeongchang as "Olympic Athletes from Russia" OAR.
The Games saw the addition of big air snowboarding , mass start speed skating , mixed doubles curling , and mixed team alpine skiing to the programme.
On the ice, the Netherlands again dominated the speed skating, winning gold medals in seven of the ten individual events.
Dutch speed skater Sven Kramer won gold in the men's m event, becoming the only male speed skater to win the same Olympic event three times.
Noriaki Kasai of Japan became the first athlete in history to participate in eight Winter Olympics when he took part in the ski jumping qualification the day before the opening of the Games.
Norway led the total medal standings with 39, the highest number of medals by a nation in any Winter Olympics, followed by Germany's 31 and Canada's Host nation South Korea won seventeen medals, its highest medal haul at a Winter Olympics.
The host city for the Winter Olympics is Beijing , the capital of the People's Republic of China , elected on 31 July at the th IOC Session in Kuala Lumpur.
Beijing will be the first city ever to have hosted both the Summer and Winter Olympics. The Winter Olympics will take place between 4 and 20 February The Winter Olympics will be in Milan - Cortina d'Ampezzo , Italy and take place between 6 and 22 February The process for awarding host city honours came under intense scrutiny after Salt Lake City had been awarded the right to host the Games.
These gifts included medical treatment for relatives, a college scholarship for one member's son and a land deal in Utah. Samaranch defended the gift as inconsequential since, as president, he was a non-voting member.
The surplus was used to create the Utah Athletic Foundation, which maintains and operates many of the remaining Olympic venues. New terms and age limits were established for IOC membership, and 15 former Olympic athletes were added to the committee.
Stricter rules for future bids were imposed, with ceilings imposed on the value of gifts IOC members could accept from bid cities.
According to the IOC, the host city for the Winter Olympics is responsible for " In actual fact, Nagano's economy did experience a post-Olympic boom for a year or two, but the long-term effects have not materialised as anticipated.
The Winter Olympics has the added problem of the alpine events requiring a mountain location; the men's downhill needs an meter altitude difference along a suitable course.
As this is a focal event that is central to the Games, the IOC has previously not agreed to it taking place a great distance from the main host city.
Due to cost issues, fewer and fewer cities are willing to host. Both the and Games, which were hosted in countries where large cities are located close to suitable mountain regions, had lower costs since more venues, hotels and transport infrastructure already existed.
In contrast the games had large cost due to most installations had to be built. The IOC has enacted several initiatives to mitigate these concerns.
Firstly, the commission has agreed to fund part of the host city's budget for staging the Games. For the Winter Games, IOC allowed a longer distance between the alpine events and other events.
In the IOC began enacting drug testing protocols. They started by randomly testing athletes at the Winter Olympics. It was not until the late s that international sporting federations began to coordinate efforts to standardise the drug-testing protocols.
The Winter Olympics in Turin became notable for a scandal involving the emerging trend of blood doping , the use of blood transfusions or synthetic hormones such as Erythropoietin EPO to improve oxygen flow and thus reduce fatigue.
The Winter Olympics in Sochi's Russian Doping Scandal has resulted in the International Olympic Committee to begin disciplinary proceedings against 28 later increased to 46 Russian athletes who competed at the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, acting on evidence that their urine samples were tampered with.
The Winter Olympics have been an ideological front in the Cold War since the Soviet Union first participated at the Winter Games.
It did not take long for the Cold War combatants to discover what a powerful propaganda tool the Olympic Games could be.
The advent of the state-sponsored "full-time amateur athlete" of the Eastern Bloc countries further eroded the ideology of the pure amateur, as it put the self-financed amateurs of the Western countries at a disadvantage.
The Soviet Union entered teams of athletes who were all nominally students, soldiers, or working in a profession, but many of whom were in reality paid by the state to train on a full-time basis.
The Cold War created tensions amongst countries allied to the two superpowers. The strained relationship between East and West Germany created a difficult political situation for the IOC.
Because of its role in World War II, Germany was not allowed to compete at the Winter Olympics. The IOC agreed to provisionally accept the East German National Olympic Committee with the condition that East and West Germans compete on one team.
The Winter Games have had only one national team boycott when Taiwan decided not to participate in the Winter Olympics held in Lake Placid.
Prior to the Games the IOC agreed to allow China to compete in the Olympics for the first time since China was given permission to compete as the "People's Republic of China" PRC and to use the PRC flag and anthem.
Until the island of Taiwan had been competing under the name "Republic of China" ROC and had been using the ROC flag and anthem.
Despite numerous appeals and court hearings the IOC's decision stood. When the Taiwanese athletes arrived at the Olympic village with their Republic of China identification cards they were not admitted.
They subsequently left the Olympics in protest, just before the opening ceremonies. The country agreed to compete under a flag bearing the emblem of their National Olympic Committee and to play the anthem of their National Olympic Committee should one of their athletes win a gold medal.
The agreement remains in place to this day. The Olympic Charter limits winter sports to "those The addition of these events has broadened the appeal of the Winter Olympics beyond Europe and North America.
While European powers such as Norway and Germany still dominate the traditional Winter Olympic sports, countries such as South Korea, Australia and Canada are finding success in the new sports.
The results are: more parity in the national medal tables; more interest in the Winter Olympics; and higher global television ratings.
Demonstration sports have historically provided a venue for host countries to attract publicity to locally popular sports by having a competition without granting medals.
Demonstration sports were discontinued after In the latter it's considered a national sport. It included cross-country skiing , shooting , downhill skiing , fencing and horse riding.

Die auf verlegten Olympischen Spiele in Tokio beginnen am Juli und damit fast genau ein Jahr später als geplant.
Zuvor hatte IOC-Präsident Thomas Bach auch einen früheren Termin schon in den Frühlingsmonaten nicht ausgeschlossen. Doch nach den ersten Beratungen mit den Organisatoren, den beteiligten Sportverbänden, TV-Sendern und Geldgebern entschieden sich die Ausrichter nun für den neuen Termin in den Sommermonaten.
Ursprünglich sollte Olympia in Tokio am Juli dieses Jahres eröffnet werden und am 9. August enden. Der Beginn der Paralympics war für den August geplant gewesen.
Die Paralympics sollen nun vom The International Luge Federation FIL has proposed the addition of six new events, including natural track luge men's and women's singles , a women's doubles competition on the artificial track, and sprint events men, women, and doubles on the artificial track.
The International Skating Union ISU continues to campaign for the addition of synchronized skating as a new event within the discipline of figure skating.
In biathlon , a single mixed relay has been proposed by the International Biathlon Union IBU to complement the four-person mixed relay that featured at the Winter Olympics.
In July , the IOC announced the addition of seven new events: women's monobob; freestyle skiing big air men and women ; mixed team events for freestyle skiing aerials, ski jumping, and snowboard cross; and the mixed relay in short track speed skating.
This means a total of events will be held. In May , the IIHF announced nine nations that had secured Olympic qualification in the men's tournament.
On 30 May , the first eight countries classified for the men's ice hockey tournament were announced. These countries were the first to confirm that they will send a delegation to Beijing.
On 9 December , the World Anti-Doping Agency WADA banned Russia from all international sport for a period of four years, after the Russian government was found to have tampered with lab data that it provided to WADA in January as a condition of the Russian Anti-Doping Agency being reinstated.
As a result of the ban, WADA plans to allow individually cleared Russian athletes to take part in the Summer Olympics under a neutral banner, as instigated at the Winter Olympics, but they will not be permitted to compete in team sports.
The title of the neutral banner has yet to be determined; WADA Compliance Review Committee head Jonathan Taylor stated that the IOC would not be able to use " Olympic Athletes from Russia " OAR as it did in , emphasizing that neutral athletes cannot be portrayed as representing a specific country.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport, on review of Russia's appeal of its case from WADA, ruled on December 17, to reduce the penalty that WADA had placed.
Instead of banning Russia from sporting events, the ruling allowed Russia to participate at the Olympics and other international events, but for a period of two years, the team cannot use the Russian name, flag, or anthem and must present themselves as "Neutral Athlete" or "Neutral Team".
In some countries, broadcast rights to the Winter Olympics are already agreed through existing long-term deals.
In France and the United Kingdom, these are the first Games where Eurosport will be the main rightsholder; the BBC will sub-license a limited amount of coverage on free-to-air television, as part of a deal in which the BBC sold the pay-TV rights to the and Games to Eurosport.
In China, domestic rights to these Games are owned by China Central Television CCTV , with rights being sublicensed by China Mobile 's Migu streaming service.
On 13 March , it was announced that NBC had traded 's Super Bowl LV to CBS which, alongside Fox and NBC, alternate airing the Super Bowl on a three-year rotation in favour of the games.
Holding rights to both events will prevent them from competing for viewership and advertising sales, and also allow NBC to create synergies and advertising packages for them as it did during Super Bowl LII , which was played prior to the Winter Olympics and also televised by NBC.
Critics questioned the Beijing bid, citing that the proposed outdoor venue sites do not have reliable snowfall in winter for snow sports.
Concerns have been raised that snow may need to be transported to the venues at great cost and with uncertain environmental consequences.
The environmental impact of hosting the games near Beijing has been questioned. Some of the proposed venues will be adjacent to the Beijing Songshan National Nature Reserve and part of the same mountain system, and the environmental impact on the nature reserve of construction, and artificially covering parts of the mountain with snow, is uncertain.
Shortly after the announcement of the host city, some musical critics alleged that the official song used during the bid was "suspiciously" similar to " Let It Go " from the Disney film Frozen.
The COVID pandemic resulted in changes in qualifying for curling and women's ice hockey due to the cancellation of tournaments in The World Curling Federation proposed that qualification for curling be based on placement in the world championships and a dedicated qualification tournament to complete the field in place of points earned across the and world championships.
The IIHF based its qualification for the women's tournament upon existing IIHF World Rankings , without holding the Women's World Championship.
In the aftermath of the leak of the Xinjiang papers , the —20 Hong Kong protests , China's hostage diplomacy and the Uyghur genocide , calls were made for a boycott of the Games.
In September , United States Senator Rick Scott spoke with IOC Vice President Anita DeFrantz about reconsidering the IOC's decision to host the Winter Olympics in China.
Scott expressed disappointment that the IOC refused to commit to move the games out of China. China's use of trade sanctions and economic coercion   against Australia has led to increased calls within Australia to boycott the Winter Olympics.
Their proposal was later voted down. Some human rights organizations have called for a diplomatic boycott that would mean countries not sending their heads of state or high-ranking officials to the Olympics but still sending athletes.

The Olympic Winter Games Beijing will take place in February , coinciding with the Chinese New Year Spring Festival , the most important holiday in China.
Local residents are looking forward to welcoming athletes from around the globe to enjoy the Chinese New Year festivities, the majestic landscape and the rich cultures of Beijing, Yanqing, and Zhangjiakou, as they charm the world with the beauty of winter sports.
Designed by artist Lin Cunzhen, the emblems combine traditional and modern elements of Chinese culture, as well as features embodying the passion and vitality of winter sports.
It also points to the fact that the Games will coincide with the Chinese New Year. The Games will become a catalyst for the take-off of winter sport in China and leave lasting legacies for the integrated social and economic development of the three competition zones, not least by bringing more skiing crowds and other kinds of tourism.
