The Hockey Olympics are upon us, which means there will be fewer things to keep you busy during the winter months. And what a glorious winter it has been so far, eh? The snow is falling, the nights draw in, and all we want to do is cuddle up with a hot drink and some good old-fashioned TV sitcoms.

But the season is far from over, and with the Winter Olympics just around the corner there will be plenty to keep you busy.

When do the Hockey Olympics start? As you may know, the winter Olympics are usually held every four years, and in 2022 they will be hosted by Beijing

The competitions will last for ten days, and they will be preceded by the Paralympics on the evening of Sunday, September 15. This means that the Hockey Olympics will be officially launched on Monday, September 16.

Here is a handy guide to everything you need to know about the 2022 Hockey Olympics:

When Do The Hockey Olympics Start?

The 2022 Hockey Olympics will begin on Monday, September 16 and end on Friday, September 27. To put this in context, that is a ten-day period. Now you might be wondering if the Winter Olympics are over earlier than expected, given that the summer is already here. Sadly, this is not the case – the summer Olympics are actually one day longer than usual, spanning from Tuesday, August 13 to Friday, August 16.

This is because the Summer Olympics in Beijing were pushed back a day to avoid clashing with the wedding anniversary of the Chinese leader Xi Jinping. However, that is one day fewer of the Paralympics, and so some of the hockey players will have to wait until next year to compete.

Who Is Competing In The Hockey Olympics?

A total of 431 athletes from 52 countries will be participating in the 2022 Hockey Olympics. This is a record number of athletes, and it shows how popular hockey is not just within the United Kingdom but around the world. There is also a really cool side-note here, as you may know, the NHL (National Hockey League) and the NHLPA (National Hockey League Players Association) have “entered into a historic partnership” to bring the upcoming Hockey Olympics to life. This means that for the first time ever, U.S. citizenry will be able to tune in to the hockey season‘s biggest event, and not just the United States’ National Hockey League team, the Los Angeles Kings. So let’s all give a big round of applause to the NHL and the NHLPA for pulling off such a legendary coup!

I mean, who wouldn’t like to spend ten days in Beijing, cuddling up with a nice cup of coffee and a few films or series to watch and enjoy?

What Kind Of Events Are They?

If you are wondering what kind of events are the Hockey Olympics, you have come to the right place. The Hockey Olympics are a combination of both the winter and the summer Olympics. So let’s begin with the winter component. The Winter Olympics are usually a combination of many different events, including skiing, ice hockey, snowboarding, and snow sculpting. In the case of the 2022 Winter Olympics, the ice hockey tournament will be split into two groups, and then the winners of each group will face each other in the Gold Medal game. This type of format was first used at the 1930 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, and it has since become standard.

The summer Olympics, as you may know, are held every four years. However, the summer Olympics in Beijing were moved back a day to avoid clashing with the wedding anniversary of the Chinese leader Xi Jinping. This meant that the last day of the Olympics was split into two separate days, with the opening ceremony on August 13 and the closing ceremony on August 16. This also affected the hockey season, as the last game of the season will be played on August 16, and not on August 15 as usual. In summer 2022 the hockey season will kick off on June 12, so you will have to wait until August 22 to watch your first game. But who cares about the dates, what we have here are some great sporting events!

What Is The Difference Between The Winter And Summer Olympic Games?

The main difference between the winter and the summer Olympic games is the winter games are held in the winter, while the summer games are held in the summer. Everything else is basically the same, and is governed by the same rules and regulations. The only real difference is that the summer games are generally played during the day, while the winter games are usually played at night. This, however, is more a rule applied only to international competitions, as the NHL has its games played during the day as well, and the rest of the teams in the league play at night. So it is not like the winter games are played in a snow globe or anything.

What Is Different About These Olympic Games?

These Olympic Games are special because they are the first time that the United Kingdom will have hosted the winter games. It should come as no surprise that the United Kingdom, being such a part of the European community, wanted to host the winter games, as they are the most popular winter sport in the United Kingdom. The figure-skating competitions are also a big draw, and it is not just because of the Great Britain national skating team, but the entire discipline of skating appeals to people of all ages. And who wouldn’t like to watch the most popular sport in the world, figure skating, live?

So these are some pretty cool Olympic Games, and I bet you are really looking forward to them. And if you are in any way interested in sports, either winter or summer, you will have a lot to look forward to. There is no question that these Olympic Games will be an event to remember. And who knows – maybe, just maybe, we will even see some great hockey matches!
