Australia’s preparations are peaking at the right time, with medals won across World Cup championships all over Europe over last weekend.

Almost all were outdone by Aussie Curling duo Dean Hewitt and Tahli Gill, who created history by qualifying in the Mixed Doubles Event for the very first time since Curling became a full Olympic sport in 1998. The pair booked their spot when they defeated Korea in the final qualification tournament held in the Netherlands.

Exactly 12 days after the Flame is extinguished, a new one will be lit, signalling the start of the Paralympic Winter Games. Seven will bring Australians exclusive free-to-air coverage, including live streaming on 7plus for the first time.


Jacqui Felgate will be going to Beijing to cover the games.


Other than Jaq, Hamish and Abbey. Is there any other announcements regarding presenters?

Do we also know any other reporters other jaq that will be on the ground.

You would assume that they would have to announce something soon considering the 21 day quarantine period. With less than 30 days until the games, it means that reporters and presenters will most likely have to leave within the next week

I would think most of commentary would be done from Melbourne or Sydney as per Olympic 2021 games (2020)

Mark Baretta going to China


Wouldn’t be surprised if Emma Freedman was one of the presenters.



What time?

I’m going to guess 10.30pm AEDT as the Chinese don’t like starting before 7.30 and most of the East Coast is 3 hours behind.


Can’t start before A Current Affair ends


Their version of that is also known as blatant propaganda lmao.

Having said that, their main 7pm bulletin takes priority over everything over there (even the events as it seems) so I doubt they would do anything to that and just move the opening ceremony around.


Winter Olympics
Basil Zempilas said the other day “I will be broadcasting from a secret location🤔”


The other end of the desk?


Looks like Lydia Lassila will be joining the commentary team

NBC will have people on-site in Beijing (eg; Mike Tirico to present the primetime coverage, reporters, technical staff, etc). Today’s announcement is about NBC abandoning their already scaled-back plans to do on-site commentaries for figure skating, alpine skiing & snowboarding and calling everything from NBC Sports’ Stanford headquarters.
