The national team of Uzbek athletes plans to take part in the Winter Olympic Games in Beijing.
The Ministry of Sports stressed that the team has not yet been fully formed, as the issuance of appropriate licenses is still ongoing.
According to the committee, the national team of Uzbekistan is considering the possibility of participating in three areas: short track (short-distance speed skating), figure skating and alpine skiing.
According to preliminary data, Komiljon Tukhtaev, Rano Imonkulova, Valeria Kovaleva and Arman Gayupov can become participants of the Olympiad. Currently, athletes are preparing for the Olympic Games at the Hintertux Ski Center in Austria.
There is no question of participation of hockey players from Uzbekistan in the upcoming Winter Games — it is necessary to form and prepare a team and in the future consider the possibility of playing at the international level, so they will definitely not be in the tournament at the OG-2022.
The Winter Olympic Games will be held in Beijing from February 4 to 20, 2022. Four thousand athletes will take part in the competition. 109 sets of medals will be awarded in 15 disciplines in seven sports: biathlon, bobsleigh, skeleton, curling, speed skating, short track, luge, figure skating, hockey, alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, ski jumping, freestyle skiing, cross-country skiing and snowboarding.
