Various countries are reporting political boycotts of the upcoming Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, but it's not clear to me who will not go to the Olympics as a result.

Due to COVID-19, there are strong ticket restrictions:

Tickets will be sold exclusively to spectators residing in China's mainland, who meet the requirements of the COVID-19 countermeasures.
Olympics.com, viewed 14 December 2021.

So it seems these boycotts only affect government employees from the USA, UK, Australia, Canada (and possibly other countries who decide to similarly boycott) who live in China, presumably people working at embassies in China. However, it is possible there would ordinarily be special VIP tickets (or something similar) for politicians that I'm unaware of.
