While competing at the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022, athletes can benefit from a range of services available either in person at the Olympic Village or digitally through Athlete365.

By signing up to Athlete365, the IOC’s official platform for the global athlete community, Beijing 2022 athletes gain access to a range of exclusive Olympian services geared towards helping them make the most of their Olympic experience.

These include innovative tools designed to bring fans, friends, and family closer to the action to experience the Games with the athletes.

• Connecting with families and friends, plus fans around the world

Athlete Moment, which proved so popular when piloted at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, is being rolled out by Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS) across all winter sports at Beijing 2022, enabling athletes to connect with loved ones back home immediately after their competition. All they need to do is fill in a simple online form specifying who from their entourage they want on the other end of the screen, and the Athlete365 team takes care of the logistics.

Meanwhile, Athlete365 Connect allows athletes to receive free, high-resolution Getty Images of themselves competing on the field of play at Beijing 2022 and behind the scenes, ready to instantly share to their social media channels, potentially reaching new followers. They will continue to have access to the images after the Games, too, so that they can celebrate Beijing 2022 and grow their brand in the weeks following the Closing Ceremony.

Athletes can also sign up for the Airbnb500 Travel Grant when they have finished competing. Delivered in partnership with TOP Partner Airbnb, each Beijing 2022 Olympian and Paralympian who signs up through the online form will receive an Airbnb credit worth USD 500 to spend on unwinding after the Games or going after their next goal - or both.

• Olympic Village services

“The Beijing Olympic Village is the largest non-competition venue of the Games that best meets the needs of the competing athletes,” said SHEN Qianfan, Director-General of the Beijing 2022 Olympic Village. “With its comfortable apartments and 2,300 beds, 2200 square meters dining hall operating 24 hours, and fitness and entertainment areas, the Village provides all the necessary services. In addition, it includes medical and psychological assistance to all athletes to perform at their best and enjoy their time in Beijing”.

There is a Galaxy Athlete Lounge in each Olympic Village. In addition, athletes can pick up their complimentary, limited-edition Beijing 2022 mobile phone from TOP Partner Samsung to help them share their Olympic experiences with the world.

Many of the usual Olympic Village activities are in place to keep athletes relaxed and entertained, with table tennis already proving extremely popular in Beijing. The conditions in the Villages have drawn praise from athletes.
