Guided by a legion of foreign coaches on ice and snow, China is primed to show stronger winter sports prowess by sending the nation's largest ever Winter Games delegation.

China will send 176 athletes, the most since the country's Winter Olympics debut at the 1980 Games, and 211 coaches and officials for competition in 104 medal events out of the total 109 at the Beijing Winter Olympics, the Chinese Olympic Committee announced on Thursday.

The Games will be held from Feb 4 to 20 in three zones-downtown Beijing, the capital's Yanqing district and co-host Zhangjiakou, Hebei province.
