The games have officially begun! The 2022 Winter Olympics are in full swing over in Beijing. With so many Olympians competing for the United States, it makes you wonder how many are from New York.

In total, there are 16 Olympians this year from New York. This includes those who still live in the state and those who were born here. Remsen native, Erin Hamlin, isn't competing anymore, but you can catch her commentating during the luge competitions.
