The event program for the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games has been officially announced.

With it comes the news that women will be more represented than ever at the Winter Games.

At PyeongChang 2018, women comprised 41 percent of competitors. At Beijing 2022, that percentage will rise to 45.44.

How is this being achieved? Several sports have simply increased the quota of women who will qualify for the Games. In some cases, this has led to complete gender balance.

But there are also some events that will make their Olympic debuts at Beijing 2022, bringing the overall total to 109, up from the 102 events that were contested at PyeongChang 2018. There will be 51 men’s events, 46 women’s events and 12 mixed gender events.

Here’s a look at how each of the sports breaks down:

Biathlon

Gender equality had previously been achieved and the program remains unchanged, with five events each for men and women along with the mixed relay.

Bobsleigh

There has been a shift in the quotas available, increasing the number of women while decreasing the number of men. Each gender will now have two events. The four-man event will return to including men only, eliminating the possibility of mixed gender teams. Men and women will each compete in two-man events. But women will have the chance to compete in the new monobob event.

Skeleton

While the program remains unchanged, with one event each for men and women, there is now gender balance in the number of athletes who will qualify.

The program will be the same as it was in PyeongChang with the men’s and women’s tournaments as well as mixed doubles.

Ice Hockey

The big change here is in the women’s tournament, which will increase from eight teams to ten teams. The men’s tournament will continue to include 12 teams.

Luge

The program remains the same, with the men’s and women’s singles, doubles, and team relay events. However, the number of female athletes who will qualify has increased.

Long Track Speed Skating

There are no changes to the event program, with seven each for men and women. But for the first time, the overall number of quota spots available will be the same for each gender.

Short Track Speed Skating

While the four gendered events are back, a mixed team relay is being added, marking the first change to the short track program since Salt Lake City 2002. The mixed team relay will feature two women and two men for each qualified country.

Figure Skating

Cross-Country Skiing

There will continue to be six events each for men and women, but the sport will finally achieve gender balance in the number of athletes who qualify

Ski Jumping

In addition to the three men’s events and one women’s event that have been contested at the last two Winter Games, a mixed team event is now on the program.

Nordic Combined

Alpine Skiing

For now, the same 11 events that were contested at PyeongChang 2018 are scheduled to be included, however the International Ski Federation is still undergoing a technical review of the men’s and women’s alpine combined. For the first time, there will be gender equality in the number of athletes competing.

Freestyle Skiing

This is the sport with the biggest changes. Not only will men’s and women’s big air be included, but there will also be a mixed team aerials event. Another breakthrough is ensuring the same number of male and female athletes will compete.

Snowboard

A mixed team event in snowboard cross has been added to the five individual events for each gender. For the first time, there will be gender balance in the number of athletes qualified.
