Before the Peoples Republic of China was founded in 1949, Chinese athletes had participated in three Olympic Games but won nothing. Since 1949, China has participated in six summer and seven winter Olympics, winning 112 gold medals in summer Olympics. At the Los Angeles, Barcelona and Atlanta Olympics, China came fourth in the gold medals table, and second at the Athens Olympics. At the 2004 Olympics, China took home 63 medals, 36 of them (57.1 percent of the total) being won by young athletes; 10 of the gold medal winners were under 20 years old. This demonstrates the increasing maturity of Chinas young athletes and growing overall strength in competitive sports. So what about Beijing Olympic Games? Will we take the place of USA to be 1st? I believe so absolutely!

Beijing Olympic Games gives the world so many surprises, we show our new image to the world. Many Chinese heroes fought for the right to hold the Olympic Games, finally we made it. Now we are also successful in winning the right to hold the winter Olympic Games. Our insistence helps us to make so many miracles.
Beijing has become the only city to hold the summer and winter Olympic Games so far, we are so proud of it. But the road to achieve this amazing phenomenon is such tough. Early in the 1990s, we started to compete for the vote, but the world did not know our country, the judgers believed that our country was far away from the qualification. So we were rejected again and again. Thanks to the insistent effort, we won the vote and fulfilled this dream. Two days ago, we won another vote for holding the winter Olympic Games. Two times to win the rights is such inspiring news, we are creating miracle all the time.
Insistent effort will bring good luck, I believe that we can creating more miracles.
When news arrived in November that Beijing was bidding for the 2022 Winter Olympics, many observers in the Chinese capital briefly choked on their tea— or was that the smog?
A few years removed from hosting the Summer Olympics, with virtually no winter sports tradition to speak of and bad air that gets worse when the temperatures drop, Chinas capital seemed as likely a choice to host the Winter Games as Dubai or Bankok.
Eight months later, the International Olympic Committee has named Beijing, which has proposed hosting the games in conjunction with the nearby city of Zhangjiakou, as one of the three finalists for the bid, along with Oslo in Norway and Kazakhstans Almaty.
The 2022 Winter Olympics has become known as the Olympics no one wants to host after a long list of candidates dropped their bids. Stockholm, Munich, two cities in Switzerland, Denver, Krakow and Lviv in Ukraine all pursued the idea of hosting the event to varying degrees but ultimately decided to withdraw themselves from consideration over the past few months— leaving only the three finalists.
With the exception of Lviv, which cancelled its bid last week because of continuing political strife in Ukraine, most of the other drop-outs appear to have been frightened away by the specter of this years Winter Games in Sochi, which emptied Russias coffers to the tune of $51 billion and left little of value behind.
Winter Olympics? A big question mark appeared in my mind. What is the "Winter Olympics"? With this question, I need to understand it well.
The original full name of the Winter Olympic Games is the Winter Olympic Games. It is the largest comprehensive Winter Games in the world. The participating countries are mainly distributed all over the world, including Europe, Africa, America, Asia and Oceania. It is hosted by the International Olympic Committee. The first session has been held since 1924, and 22 sessions have been held as of 2014, once every four years. At 8 p.m. local time on February 9, 2018, the opening ceremony of Pingchang Winter Olympic Games was held. The opening ceremony took "peace" as the theme and expressed the longing for peace. Zhou Yang, Chinas three gold medalist, won the two Winter Olympic Games as the Chinese delegations flag bearer. The Korean and Korean athletes joined the Korean moon Jae in Pingchang. Kim Yeon Na, the Korean goddess of figure skating, lit the main torch platform. On February 25, 2018, the Pingchang Winter Olympic Games officially closed and Beijing took over the Olympic flag. The 24th Winter Olympic Games will be held in Beijing and Zhangjiakou, China from February 4, 2022 to February 20, 2022.
Knowing this, my heart is surging. This is such exciting news. My mother said that the performance of the opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games and the fighting spirit of Olympic athletes in the competition have shocked the world. Now the flame of the Winter Olympic Games will be lit on this fertile land in the East. I believe every Chinese is looking forward to the arrival of the Winter Olympic Games. At the same time, it will be another opportunity to show China to the world.
My thoughts cant help but leap to the venue of the Winter Olympic Games. I fantasize that I hold hands with the mascot of the Winter Olympic Games "ice pier and snow Rongrong" and swim in every corner of the Olympic venue. We galloped thousands of miles on the alpine ski resort, ran fast on the speed slide, and showed beautiful and light dancing on the figure skating rink. And ice hockey, curling, snowmobile... Just thinking about it, my heart is happy.
In 2022, I hope my classmates and I will come to the competition venues of the Winter Olympic Games together, feel the power of the Olympic spirit, watch the track full of ice and snow, watch the heroic posture of athletes on the field, and feel the Olympic spirit of "peace, friendship and unity" of the motherland. As a primary school student, we should study hard and build a great motherland with our own knowledge and wisdom, Let people all over the world perceive the long history and profound heritage of Chinese culture and convey the Chinese Olympic spirit.
In 2022, Beijing Winter Olympic Games and winter Paralympic Games, we are looking forward to this day!
"The flower of success, people only admire her present brilliance. However, at the beginning, her bud was soaked in the tears of struggle and sprinkled with the blood of sacrifice."
Because of my obsession with basketball, I like and understand all other sports more or less. When 2022 is approaching, my heart is also full of expectations for the Winter Olympic Games to be held in Beijing next year.
What is the Olympics? I think it is a stage that shows the beauty of strength, will, skill and nature, as well as physical limits. It has won the favor of hundreds of millions of viewers. People are encouraged by victory, regret mistakes and proud of participation.
As I attack and defend on the basketball court, I am glad to score and sad for failure. The sweat and tacit cooperation with my teammates have always been the source of my happiness. Every serious dribbling and shooting, every running back and forth on the field, every persistence when falling behind in a big score, mutual encouragement among players, frowning eyebrows and firm eyes... Isnt that true for everyone in the Olympic field?
No champion is won in comfort. When people marvel at the brilliance of athletes, they pay little attention to their daily life. Cruel training, boring persistence... However, they enjoyed it, rain or shine, went ahead bravely, sacrificed their youth and shed tears on the training ground. They forget to eat and sleep on the projects they love, and constantly work hard to get the fun of sports. They work hard for their dreams with the ideal of winning glory for the country! When the national anthem is played, all the bitterness and tiredness condense into sweet tears at this moment.
Next year, in the birds nest and Zhangjiakou, these athletes who break through the cold wind, welcome the ice and snow, and sweat countless times will prove to the world that success comes from persistence.
And I, an ordinary middle school student, salute you in a distant place.
Even if I am not in the sports field, I will spread the Olympic spirit. I am in the middle school entrance examination, which is a battlefield without gunpowder smoke. Just like you in the ice and snow field, you are full of passion, full of desire for victory, and constantly sweat. If you work, you will get a harvest. Over time, miracles can be created from less to more.
"Without some cold, the plum blossom smells sweet.". Every winter Olympic athlete is a plum blossom blooming in ice and snow. The cold wind and ice and snow are just to temper his character.
In the cold snow, I will study hard, cheer for myself, cheer for you, cheer for China and cheer for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games!
"Beijing!" when international Olympic Committee President Bach issued a non-standard pronunciation, hundreds of millions of Chinese people in China were boiling again! Just as Samaranch announced in Moscow 14 years ago that Beijing had won the right to host the 2008 Olympic Games, the Chinese people were immersed in selfless excitement at this moment. Beijing has become the first city in the world to host the winter and summer Olympic Games! After the meeting, Beijing Mayor Wang Anshun spoke five key words - happiness, thanks, commitment, respect and welcome.
The Olympic Games is not a simple sports competition, but a belief that will never change. As a primary school student, maybe we cant win the gold medal for our motherland like the athletes, and we dont have the opportunity to visit the stadium and participate in the service and reception of the Olympic Games, but as long as we start now, we can also contribute to the Olympic Games!
We should be a little messenger of civilization. When the Winter Olympics comes, we decorate every corner of the city with civilization and extend our ceremonial hands to welcome visitors from all over the world. Only in this way can we carry forward our national spirit and highlight our national culture.
We should be a polite and good guide. People from other countries come to Beijing to watch the Olympic Games, which is the pride of our people all over the country! As "little hosts", we should say polite and cultured words and serve our guests with thousands of times of enthusiasm. For example, being a translator and helping foreign friends guide the way will certainly make foreign friends feel the enthusiasm of our Chinese people and make international friends aftertaste the soothing feeling and the taste of civilization.
We should be little guards of environmental protection. We should take practical actions to realize the dream of "Green China looking forward to the Olympic Games". Start with the little things around you, dont litter, pick up the garbage, make our city blue, green, clear and refreshing, and let foreign friends linger in our capital Beijing and Zhangjiakou.
No longer wait, start now, start bit by bit, start from me, stretch out your arms to welcome our winter Olympic Games!
The end of the Winter Olympics makes us proud of our country. The end of the Winter Olympics. Because our country has broken two records, and all the four gold medals in womens short track speed skating are from our country. Anyway, this is very exciting for every Chinese.
I remember that the performances of Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo really surprised me. Their beautiful dancing is infatuated, and it is inevitable to win the championship. There are also the members of the womens curling team. It was their first time to participate in the Winter Olympic Games. They were still strong and did not receive the blow of the last game. They won the bronze medal, but it also made me excited. There is also Wang Meng, a member of the womens short track speed skating team. She won three gold medals alone. Its really amazing. I dont think I would have thought of such a good situation until I knew these wars.
I didnt pay attention to the Olympic Games before, including the Winter Olympic Games. Just listen to my dad. Since the last 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, I think I will be excited when athletes win the championship. When the country wins the prize, he will be excited; If your country doesnt win the prize, your mood will be low. I dont know why. Maybe its because Im Chinese and I have Chinese blood in my blood. I dont know how to express the mood of athletes when they win the championship. That kind of mood, only our own people can have, will also have. The wonderful performance of Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo is deeply engraved in my heart and makes me feel their wonderful technology; Although Zhang Dan and Zhang Hao made mistakes, he was still very strong to complete the later game, and did not affect the later game because of the previous mistakes.
This competition makes me deeply realize that our motherland is making progress day and night.
The mascot of Beijing 2022 Paralympic Games "xuerongrong", a mascot similar to lanterns, also has an English name Shuey Rhon Rhon.
Today I am very happy because Xue Rongrong is coming to me. I want to take this opportunity to introduce my hometown - Fengfeng mining area.
We first come to Yuanbaoshan, the landmark building in Fengfeng mining area. Yuanbaoshan has many small pavilions and trees. There are mushroom pavilions surrounded by flowers and plants, windmill pavilions made of pure wood, and Yuanbao Pavilion on the top of the mountain. There is a glittering big gold Yuanbao on it. Looking down from the top of the mountain, you can see the whole mining area. There is also a famous river at the foot of the mountain, called Fuyang River, which is a spring from Heilong cave. In spring, everyone looks at the beautiful scenery by the river; In summer, it becomes a paradise for children. It is the longest river in the mining area with clear bottom. It is shaded by trees on both banks, which is very beautiful. Later, xuerongrong will introduce Pengcheng Cizhou kiln. Cizhou kiln has a long history, there are museums, and the cultural relics and sites inside are well preserved by us.
Then we came to the city. I said to Xue Rongrong, "how is it? Isnt it beautiful here?" it said excitedly, "its really beautiful. Its really a tourist resort!" I said proudly: "of course, there is a theme park in the city every other section. People enjoy the scenery and exercise in the park." this is my hometown, a small but beautiful place.
At the time of parting, Xue Rongrong told me that its name implies lighting up my dream and warming the world, representing friendship, courage and strength, and reflecting the concept of struggle and motivation of athletes in the winter Paralympic Games. Let me study hard and grow up to be a glowing person.
Beijing and the northern Chinese city of Zhangjiakou are bidding for the 2022 Winter Olympics. The Chinese Olympic Committee sent a formal nomination letter to the International Olympic Committee last Sunday and the bid is supported by the Chinese government,Chinas official news agency Xinhua reported this week. "The bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympics will further improve the development of the Chinese Olympic cause,display the prehensive power of China and push forward the coordinated development of the economies of the o cities," the mittee said in a statement.
At the Olympic Winter Games, curling consists of two events: a women’s tournament and a men’s tournament. Each tournament starts with 10 curling teams. Two teams play against each other at a time. The game is played on ice, and the two teams take turns pushing 19.1-kilogram stones towards a series of concentric rings or circles. The object is to get the stones as close to the centre of the rings as possible.
One game consists of 10 “ends” (similar to innings in baseball). During each end, each four-person team “throws” (in fact, slides along the ice) eight stones — two stones per person and 16 altogether. Team members sweep the ice clean in front of each stone to control the stone’s direction, known as its “curl,” and the stone’s speed. The team with the most points — more stones closer to the centre of the rings — at the conclusion of 10 ends, is the winner.
