Day two of the 2022 Winter Olympics will include events in ski jumping, curling, ice hockey, snowboarding, luge and figure skating, to name a few.
These are some key moments to look out for:
Can Norway remain on the up with the men's downhill?
Norway's in-form Aleksander Aamodt Kilde laid down a marker by setting the fastest time on Friday in the wind-affected second training run for the men's downhill.
The 29-year-old set the pace on the new course, dubbed "The Rock." With no test events held at the newly designed slope because of the pandemic, it is arguably the fairest downhill race in history as everyone is new to the course.
There will also be a fresh winner crowned, as Aksel Lund Svindal, who has since retired, won in PyeongChang four years ago — the first time Norway claimed top spot in the marquee event.
Figure skating: A long way to go with the short program at the team event
Nathan Chen, considered the gold-medal favorite in figure skating’s men’s singles event, finished in first place last Friday in the men’s short program of the team event, giving the US team an edge to win an early medal in Beijing.
On Sunday, it is the turn for the women to take to the ice in the short program, so it should mean a first Olympic look at 15-year-old Kamila Valieva of the Russian Olympic Committee. Valieva has already broken world records — and look out for her quad jumps. The team skating event format is almost like a mini-Olympics: Every team enters a man, a woman, a pairs team and a set of ice dancers, and the five best-scoring countries advance to a free skate on Monday, where the team with the most points after all the events are completed wins.
- Snowboard: All eyes will be on New Zealand's Zoi Sadowski Synnott as she tries to hold off the double Olympic champion Jamie Anderson of Team USA in women’s slopestyle. No snowboarder has won three golds in a row at the Olympic Games, as Anderson aims for history.
- Cross-country skiing: Norway's Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo leads the field in the men’s 15km + 15km skiathlon final.
- Freestyle skiing: The women’s moguls takes place under the lights with a likely duel between Perrine Laffont of France and Jakara Anthony of Australia.
- Speed skating: Nine-time Olympic medalist Sven Kramer of the Netherlands goes for his 10th in the men’s 5000m.
