The Olympic committee announced their procedures for next winter.

Among them:
  • All athletes and Games participants who are fully vaccinated will enter the closed-loop management system upon arrival. Games participants who are not fully vaccinated will have to serve a 21-day quarantine upon arrival in Beijing.
Also, daily testing and tickets will only be sold to Chinese residents.

“Tickets will be sold exclusively to spectators residing in China’s mainland, who meet the requirements of the COVID-19 countermeasures.”

Some more info about the vaccination policy. Vaccines have to be recognised by WHO or related international organisations or approved officially by the countries or regions concerned.

I found out today the schedule has been out since June. Had this been discussed? Here it is:

There has been some discussion about the schedule, especially about the Pairs being last - which is unusual but not unexpected with Pairs being China's best discipline so far. There also has been some discussion about the men's part in the Team event, that event being pretty close to the individual men's event and how that should be handled. I would refer to the US, Russian, and Japanese men's threads for more info (though I must warn you: there's a lot to read through with regard to strategies, skaters' choices and so on).

I had missed all that, I'll try catching up when time allows. Thank you! :)
