Winter Olympics 2022 medal table: how many medals did Team GB win at Beijing Games - final medal table
The XXIV Olympic Winter Games in China’s capital concluded on Sunday with Norway, Germany and the host nation leading the final medal table.
The 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing included a record 109 events over 15 disciplines in seven sports.
Team GB sent 50 athletes to China’s capital to compete across 11 sports as they attempted to bring home gold, silver and bronze medals.
Britain had won a total of 32 medals throughout the history of the Winter Olympics, prior to the Beijing games, and that haul comprised of 11 gold, four silver and 17 bronze.
The 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, was a disappointing one for Team GB as they finished 19th in the overall medal table with just one gold, no silver and four bronze medals.
Hopes were high this year that the Brits can better that performance in Beijing, here is how all the countries got on:
