Five New Zealand athletes have been chosen for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.

Zoi Sadowski-Synnott and Nico Porteous head a five-strong group of athletes named in the New Zealand team to contest next year’s Beijing Games.

Zoi Sadowski-Synnott (snowboard slopestyle and big air) and Nico Porteous (freeski halfpipe) are reigning world champions, and won bronze at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

They join three-time World Cup winner and Olympian Alice Robinson (alpine ski racing giant slalom), PyeongChang Olympian Finn Bilous (freeski slopestyle and big air) and newcomer Margaux Hackett (freeski slopestyle and big air).

More Beijing 2022 selections will take place between October and January. This will include athletes for alpine, cross country and freeski and snowboard athletes, as well as athletes from ice sports including speedskating, ice figure skating, luge and curling. However, no more New Zealand athletes are expected to make the selection.
