International test events for the 2022 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Beijing are set to be replaced by an adapted testing program because of the COVID-19 pandemic. As global travel restrictions are largely likely to remain for the coming months, Beijing 2022 organizers have decided to cancel a series of test events that had been planned for the first quarter of next year. The four parties involved are the Beijing 2022 organizing committee (BOCOG), the Winter Olympic International Federations, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Paralympic Committee (IPC). It is understood that facilities and services will be put through their paces, but not necessarily in an international competition format.
