Team China have secured a place at the Nordic biathlon event for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics after China's Zhao Jiawen won a precious ticket for the sport.

Zhao finished 22nd in the event of Nordic biathlon (a combined cross-country skiing and shooting sport) during the International Ski Federation (FIS) Nordic Combined Continental Cup in Nizhny Tagil, Russia, on Friday.

Top 30 finishers of the 53 athletes in the competition qualify for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.

Established in June 2018, the Chinese national Nordic biathlon team, featuring six athletes, will make their Olympic debut in the Beijing games.
