The organizers of the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games intend to hold 10 test events at Olympic venues this year with participation from overseas athletes and staff.

The organizing committee for the Beijing Olympics and Paralympics said on Monday that the international test events will begin on October 8th with speed skating competitions. Figure skating and cross-country skiing will also be practiced.

Officials expect more than 2,000 people from Japan, South Korea, the United States and Europe to take part in the events.

Overseas participants must be vaccinated against coronavirus and upon arrival in China will live in isolation, as was done during the summer games in Tokyo.
