The thrilling, fast-paced sport of short track speed skating returns at the 2022 Winter Olympics with a bigger program than ever before, and NBC and Peacock will have live coverage of every moment.

In addition to the typical slate of three individual events plus a relay per gender, 2022 includes the addition of the mixed team relay, which features teams of two men and two women per nation competing against each other over 2000 meters. Fans won’t have to wait long to experience it, as the mixed team relay leads off the short track competition February 5, the day after the Opening Ceremony.

The United States team has a new look with 27-year-old Kristen Santos having emerged as Team USA’s top medal contender in short track. Santos is ranked in the top five globally in both the 1000m and 1500m disciplines. Maame Biney, a quarterfinalist at the 2018 PyeongChang Games as an 18-year-old, is back for her second Winter Olympics and poses a podium threat in the women’s 500m. 2018 silver medalist John-Henry Krueger, winner of the only short track medal for Team USA in PyeongChang, changed his nationality following the 2018 Games and will compete in 2022 for Hungary alongside gold medalist brothers Shaoang and Shaolin Sandor Liu.

This year’s Winter Games could also see history made as Italian legend Arianna Fontana needs just one medal to become the first short track athlete of any gender to win nine career Winter Olympic medals.
