The White House is illuminated red, white and blue on Thursday in support of the Olympians and Paralympians of Team USA who are set to compete in the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said President Biden intends to watch the Winter Games.

"We are looking forward to it and to cheering on our American athletes who will be competing," said Psaki.

The show of support comes on the eve of the opening ceremony, which takes place at 6:30 a.m. ET on Friday. Team USA has 225 athletes competing at this year's games, where they hope to come away atop the Winter Olympics medal table for the first time ever.
