The competition may be fierce at the Beijing 2022 Winter Games, but that’s all love for some Olympians.
Although the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has prevented many people from cheering on their loved ones in person at this year’s event, some athletes are lucky enough to be at the Olympics with their loved ones after all two qualified for the sports competition.
Ice dance duos like Evan Bates and Madison Chock with curlers Brett Gallant and Jocelyn Peterman, there doesn’t seem to be a shortage of couples competing alongside each other. In fact, some Olympic pairs, like skeleton sliders Kim Meylemans and Nicole Silveira— even go head-to-head, proving there’s no love lost when it comes to sportsmanship.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, romance will surely be in the air in the Olympic Village as these athletes celebrate with their partners. Let’s face it: a gold medal would most certainly crown a box of chocolates, right?
