From 2008 to 2022, from summer to winter, from the “Bird’s Nest” bloom and back to the “Bird’s Nest” — in the two Clusters of Olympic flames across time and space, Beijing has completed the world’s first “Double Olympic City” certification.Fireworks explode over the Bird’s Nest during a rehearsal for the opening ceremony of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games in Beijing, Capital of China, On Jan 30.The Olympic logos that dot Beijing, and the festive atmosphere that haunts its streets, are a response to China’s century-old vision of the Games.At the beginning of the last century, the Chinese people in the background of poverty and poverty asked helplessly: when can China participate in the Olympic Games?When can you win a gold medal in the Olympics?When will the Olympic Games be held?From 1932, when Liu Changchun became the first Chinese to take part in the Olympic Games, to 1984, when Xu Haifeng won China’s first Olympic gold medal, to 2008, when Beijing won the right to host the Olympic Games, China has spent nearly 100 years to give a complete answer to the “three Olympic questions”.Now, the grand opening of the Winter Olympics in Beijing is a perfect continuation of China’s answer.File photo: Beijing xidan intersection northwest corner layout “open winter Olympics” theme flower beds.China News Service reporter Jia Tianyong photo “Double Olympic city”, unprecedented.This “perfection” lies in China’s reverse attack in the modern Olympic movement from laggard to leader.It is because the former “sick man of Asia” has developed into a world-renowned sports power and become an indispensable part of the Olympic family.What’s more, more than 100 years ago, when our ancestors asked the “Three Questions of the Olympic Games”, they could not imagine that the Olympic Games of the future would have such a deep “affinity” with China.When China resumed its lawful seat in the IOC in 1979, the reform and opening up process had just begun. The history of New China’s Olympic campaign is also an important part of China’s reform and opening up process.In the 1980s and 1990s, the Olympic Games became an important stage to show China’s image and boost the confidence of the Chinese people.With the comprehensive improvement of China’s national strength, bidding for the Olympic Games has become a landmark of China’s further development and built a bridge between China and the world.From the successful bid for the Olympic Games in 2001 to the successful holding of the Olympic Games in 2008, Every day in the past seven years, Beijing has quietly changed.From infrastructure to urban environment, from stadium construction to road transportation, from communication system to air quality, from more professional and more humane service to a more peaceful and inclusive mentality…While retaining the charm of the ancient capital of six dynasties, Beijing has completed the magnificent turn of becoming an international metropolis.The second rehearsal for the opening ceremony of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games was held at the National Stadium, the Bird’s Nest, on Jan 22, 2022.The rehearsal carried out the whole process, all elements of the rehearsal, gorgeous fireworks lit up the night sky of the bird’s Nest.More than 4 billion viewers around the world corrected their perceptions of China on live television, marveling at how much more this once-mysterious Oriental country has to offer than “kung fu” and “gourmet food”.And when the calendar turns to 2022, the Olympics and China are even more intertwined.As a Chinese saying goes, “Give China 16 days and return the world 5,000 years.” The Olympics not only brought profound changes to China, but also enriched the Olympic spirit and cultural connotation in China, and made great contributions to the balanced and sustainable development of the Olympic Movement in the world.This “answer sheet” is China’s legacy for the future.For the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the future has arrived.China’s successful bid for the Olympic Games as the fulcrum of development, and is gradually becoming a reality of sports power dream, is the original ideal of the future.In order to commemorate the successful hosting of the Beijing Olympic Games, August 8 has become China’s “National Fitness Day” every year since 2009. Sports and health are becoming a nation’s DNA and will further change the lifestyle of everyone here.Photo taken on July 31, 2015 shows another blueprint for the future after Beijing won the bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.This makes Beijing the first city to host both summer and Winter Olympics.Before 2015, nearly 1/3 of China’s snow and ice minor items were in development gap.Since 2015, China has established more than 20 new national teams, improving the map of the Winter Olympics, and in the Beijing Winter Olympics, 7 sports and 15 sub-events have been fully covered, China’s ice and snow sports ushered in an unprecedented opportunity for development.The Olympic Tower is illuminated by spring lights at night in Beijing, Capital of China, Jan 26, 2022.By October 2021, China had achieved its goal of attracting 300 million people to participate in snow and ice sports, with 346 million people participating in the sport.International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said only in China could such a vision be realized, which “can be said to open a new era.”He said it will greatly change the world’s winter sports landscape and drive the development of the global winter sports industry.In this blueprint, too, the Winter Olympics go far beyond competitive sports.From the original zhangjiakou as the host city, Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei coordinated development is one of the key.As China enters a new journey towards its second centenary goal, promoting snow and ice sports to make new strides has become an important part of the country’s high-quality development…The Olympics changed And needed China;”Double Olympic City” is the world’s first, also belongs to the world.Feb 4 is “Start of Spring”, the first of the 24 solar terms in the Chinese lunar calendar. It is the day when all things begin to revive and look to the future.The opening of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics on that day also marks the beginning of a new chapter.In this chapter, China and the world, “together towards the future”!Source: China News Service
