The 2022 Winter Olympics hit Beijing this week on skates, skis, bobsleds, snowboards, and all manner of winter modes of transportation we have collectively agreed to sportify. And there are a lot of them. Let’s run the numbers quick: two bookend ceremonies; 15 discrete disciplines across seven sports; and a record 109 events total, including seven new ones added to the program this year, all of which will be undertaken by 2,871 athletes from 91 countries, including 222 from Team USA.
Another number to keep in mind: 13. That’s how many hours Beijing is ahead of New York City, so schedule your live-watching hours (or spoiler planning) accordingly. The Winter Olympics will run for over two weeks until the Closing Ceremony on Sunday, February 20, at 7 a.m. ET. You can catch the action either streaming live on Peacock Premium or on NBC. Peacock promises to feature full replays of all events right after they wrap. It’s a lot! To help you keep track of things — and, frankly, to help ourselves keep track of things — we compiled a schedule organized by day and event, below. Feel free to Ctrl+F curling for the most exciting one of all. (Events are listed in Eastern time.)
