📧 Ring in the Winter Olympics with our free newsletter!

The 2022 Winter Olympic Games haven't even started yet, but you can already hear the song in your head, right? The cymbals, the bugles, the bass: "Bah, bah, bah-da-da-da-da, bahbahdadadadadadadada."

Our Olympics Newsletter, delivered directly to your inbox, will guide you through what is sure to be a newsy and interesting two weeks. China is a vastly different country than it was the last time it hosted the Games, in 2008. And in the middle of a global pandemic, it has been taking heavy precautions to try to clamp down on the Covid-19 virus.

As for the United States team, there are 114 men, 108 women, and one athlete who identifies as nonbinary — figure skater Timothy LeDuc — on the roster. The 223 athletes make up the second-biggest contingent the U.S. has ever sent to the Games.

The daily newsletter — it starts Feb. 4 and runs through Feb. 20 — will share the latest information on all of the competitive, social, political and sportsmanship factors that make the Olympics such a special event. Our Olympics newsletter can be your prime source for updates and features about what's happening in Beijing.

You can sign up for it — and for any of our other great offerings — by visiting our newsletters page. Click here to go there now.
