UPCOMING ENTERPRISE:

GU’S CHOICE: The American-born superstar skier’s decision to compete for China rather than the country of her birth raised eyebrows stateside, but a closer look at Eileen Gu’s family’s history, and at the changing nature of the Chinese emigre community in the US, might cast her choice in a slightly different light. By Janie Har and Sarah DiLorenzo. UPCOMING: 1,300 words by 1 am, photos.

DOPING-THE DISTRACTION: Those first few days of the Beijing Olympics, the questions came hard and fast: Uyghurs. The closed loop. Jack Ma. Appeasing a dictatorship.

Today, another Olympics is here. And — politically, at least — Tibet has fallen silent. By Dake Kang and Sam McNeil. UPCOMING: 1,600 words by 12 am, photos, video.

BEIJING-THE SPECTATORS: Who’s watching these Olympics? How do they get in? By Sam McNeill. UPCOMING: 700 words by 3 am, photos.
