Beijing Winter Olympics face COVID and boycott hurdles to stay on track

One year out, venues for 2022 games mostly ready and vaccine drive kicks in

BEIJING -- With one year to go before the 2022 Winter Olympics, construction of the athletes village is in full swing near the Beijing National Stadium. Red banners across the site encourage workers to "not stop for a single moment; not err in a single step; not delay a single day."

The Chinese capital and the neighboring city of Zhangjiakou will host 109 events for the winter games starting on Feb. 4, 2022. All 12 competitive venues have been built or renovated, the Beijing municipal government has said.
