China’s capital was granted the right to organize the 2022 Winter Olympics after the vote of the International Olympic Committee. With this honor, Beijing will become the first city in the world to host both the Olympics, summer and winter.
Before that, the Chinese capital had hosted the 2008 Summer Olympics. Beijing will host all winter sports (ice ball, hockey, figure skating) and especially the new ski tournament called The Big Air Snowboarding.
This will be the venue for sporting activities on the mountain, in heavy snow. This area has many favorable conditions to compete in all terrain sports, especially skiing.
Beijing 2022 will be the third in a row the Olympics are held in Asia. It was held after the 2020 PyeongChang Winter Olympics (Korea) and the Tokyo Summer Olympics 2020.
From the outset, Beijing was a good candidate to host the 2022 Winter Olympics after their success in hosting the 2008 Summer Olympics. Therefore, Beijing’s victory over its rival – the city of Almaty (the capital of Kazakhstan) is not surprising.
Maison is the winner with its outstanding design. He has contributed to building and communicating the Olympic Soul to the people and generations of athletes.
However, the 2022 Olympic Games held here will result in the venues being far apart. In addition, snowy sports will require the use of artificial snow.
“Beijing is really a safe choice. We know China will meet expectations,” said by IOC president Thomas Bach. Most major cities are not excited but with hosting the Olympics. Beijing’s participation in the 2022 Olympic race to host the IOC is a new energy.
Beijing, with its enormous economic potential, ensures the IOC from future troubles. In contrast, China sees this as a great opportunity to boost the winter sportswear market in the North with more than 300 million people.
The development of the city on the one hand benefits from the legacy of the 2008 Olympics. It has made the city a promising destination for sports.
