The changes not only focus on being youth-oriented but also in a way that it suits well with both the genders. This 2022 Beijing Olympics will have the highest number of females ever in any Olympic game played. The female quota instead of the usual 41% is taken to 45.44%! That’s a huge rise, buds.
Apart from these things, even the skating will join the International Federation of Biathlon, and even the Curling will be made gender-balanced.

Coming to the count of the athletes, it has been reduced by 42 and reached the count of 2892 which is still within the Olympic Chart Framework. All the agenda set for the 2022 games aligns perfectly with that of the 2020 Olympics. Therefore, there is no much change in the selection of the field or venue. This will help in reducing the size of the overall Games.
