"The competitive critters featured in today's Doodle have gathered from all over the world under the winter sky to keep their cool and put their opponents on ice. Who will be pouncing on victory and scurrying home an international legend? Find out over the next two weeks as the Games have officially begun," stated the Google Doodle description.

The 17-day multi-sport tournament kicked off on Friday, February 4th, and will continue until February 20th. In and around Beijing, more than 2,800 participants from 91 countries will compete in 15 categories in seven sports.

Various Nation's opinions

As part of a diplomatic embargo, The Us, The U.k., and a few other countries will not send ambassadors to the Beijing Winter Games, but the Chinese capital will still attract a number of world dignitaries for the opening ceremony. A Chinese Army soldier was named a torchbearer at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Torch Relay on Thursday. Therefore, alarmed Indian authorities declared that they will not attend the ceremony. This soldier actively participated in the 2020 Galwan conflict with Indian troops.

Arif Mohammad Khan, a skier from India, will compete in the Beijing Winter Olympics. However, he will be the country's only representative athlete.
