The Olympics and Paralympics are an exhilarating time as the world’s greatest athletes compete for a spot on the podium after years of hard work and training. Along with the athletes, there are dedicated coaches, officials, and support staff, too, who have been eagerly preparing for this event.

This year’s Winter Olympics begin Friday, February 4 and close on Sunday, February 20, 2022 and the Paralympics begin March 4 and close on March 13, 2022.

Show your provincial pride and join us in cheering on these Manitobans in Beijing!
