They'd probably allow it for them, that's probably Chile and New Zealand's best chance at hosting an Olympics.

2022 Winter Olympics host district opens construction bidding
Xinhua

Suburban Beijing's Yanqing district, home to Xiaohaituo Mountain, one of the host sites for the 2022 Winter Olympics, launched bidding for sports venue construction on Friday.

The venues open for bidding are the Olympic Village and mountain media center, as well as the transformation and operation of the Yanqing Olympic venue cluster after the games conclude.

Beijing and Zhangjiakou City in north China's Hebei Province won a joint bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in July 2015.

With ample snow in the winter and high-altitude mountains, Yanqing lies between Beijing's city proper and Zhangjiakou. The venue cluster in the rural district is set to stage the Alpine skiing, bobsled and luge events for the 2022 Games as well as to house a national training base.

Zhang Yuan, deputy district chief, said at the launch of the bidding that Yanqing's Olympic sports venues will be high-quality engineering projects to promote China's ice and snow sports.

He said the open bidding is expected to draw private investment and construction contractors, preferably those with advanced technology and winter events operating experience.

The construction contracts will be in the form of public-private partnerships, including Build-Own-Operate (BOO) and Rebuild-Operate-Transfer (ROT) projects. The terms of the partnership will be 30 years, he said.

New Logos For Beijing 2022 Olympics and Paralympics Revealed
By Robert Livingstone | Published Dec 15, 2017

New logos representing the Beijing 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Games were launched Friday at the National Aquatics Centre in the Chinese Capital. At precisely 20:22 local time during a ceremony at the ‘Water Cube’, a planned venue for the Games in 2022, Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli, International Olympic Committee (IOC) Vice President Yu Zaiqing and Beijing 2022 President Cai Qi revealed the new logos.



The new logos will be showcased as part of the official Olympic Winter Games handover ceremony at the PyeongChang 2018 closing ceremony set for February 25 next year.

The emblems, named “Winter Dream” and “Flying High”, were designed by Deputy Dean of China Central Academy of Fine Arts’ Design School Lin Cunzhen who was also the artist behind the logo for the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games.

Cunzhen also created the designs for the Beijing 2022 bid logo, the branding used when the city was competing with Almaty in Kazakhstan for the right to host the Games. Beijing became the first ever host city for both the Winter and Summer editions of the Olympic Games.


Her entry was one of 4,000 proposals submitted to the Games Organizing Committee during a process that began mid-2016 and wrapped up just weeks ago when the IOC gave its approval for the final design. The branding will soon appear worldwide and be used to promote the Games and the sales of official Olympic merchandise.

‘Winter Dreams’ Olympic Winter Games Emblem

The inspiration of the emblem design comes from the Chinese character for winter — “冬”. A stylised, calligraphic rendition of the Chinese character, which infuses Chinese culture with contemporary artistic elements, projects a new image of China in a new era, demonstrating the country’s commitment to a successful Winter Games. It also heralds the realisation of China’s Winter Olympic Dream, namely, to encourage more Chinese people to take part in winter sports, to build China into a sporting power, and to promote winter sports and the Olympic Movement around the world.

The upper part of the emblem resembles a skater and its lower part a skier. The ribbon-like motif in between, full of rhythm, stands for the host country’s rolling mountains, Games venues, ski courses and skating tracks. The ribbons, as artistically expressed in the emblem, give a touch of festivity and are an indication that the Games coincide with the celebrations of the Chinese New Year.

The emblem’s primary colour of blue represents dreams and the future, as well as the purity of ice and snow. The colours of red and yellow, which draw on those of China’s National Flag, represent passion, youth and vigour. The presentation of the words “Beijing 2022”, a nod to the art of Chinese calligraphy and paper-cutting, adds to the harmony of the entire emblem.

‘Flying High’ Paralympic Winter Games Emblem

The emblem is designed to present the host country’s culture and highlight the Games organisers’ athlete-centred philosophy. It draws inspiration from the vigour and strength implied in the Chinese character for flying – “飞”, pronounced fei.

In a vivid way, the emblem evokes the image of an athlete in a wheelchair rushing towards the finish line and victory. The robust strokes in the upper part and the soft curves below symbolise Para athletes striving for excellence despite their physical disabilities. The emblem embodies the Paralympic spirit that aims to enable Para athletes to achieve sporting excellence and inspire and excite the world.

With its impressive colour scheme and well-balanced composition, the emblem seeks to convey a message of strength, passion and dynamism. It encourages all athletes to fly high on the wings of their aspirations.

TIME Excerpt
Everything We Know So Far About the 2022 Winter Olympics

The 2022 Winter Olympics are four years away, but the planning and work to create the infrastructure for the XXIV Olympic Winter Games began years ago. Even as the world’s attention turned to the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea this month, preparations for the next Winter Olympic Games has continued. The 2022 Winter Olympics will be held in February of that year, lasting just over two weeks from Feb. 4 to Feb. 20.

The next Winter Olympics are being held in China’s capital city of Beijing, in the Hebei province, with some events happening in neighboring towns.

Beijing also hosted the 2008 Summer Olympics. The 2022 Winter Olympics will make Beijing the only city ever to host both the Summer and Winter Olympics.

The Beijing Winter Olympics require building major infrastructure, some of which already exists from the 2008 Summer Games (helping to lower costs), according the official Olympics website. China is building six new competition venues for the next Winter Olympics, three of which were previously planned, to augment the six existing venues that were built for the 2008 Games.

Three “Game zones” are being organized in Beijing, Yanqing and Zhangjiakou, with Beijing planned as the venue for the Olympics Opening and Closing ceremonies as well as ice sports, the website says.

Yanqing and Zhangjiakou, which are located northwest of Beijing near a mountain range, will each host different events. All of the skiing events (except alpine) and biathlon will take place in Zhangjiakou, and bobsled, skeleton, luge and alpine skiing will happen in the Yanqing zone.

Hosting the Olympic games is extremely expensive, and costs have only risen in recent years. Countries shell out billions of dollars for a moment in the spotlight on the world stage.

China spent a record $40 billion on the 2008 Olympics, only to be outdone eight years later by Russia, which spent $55 billion on the Sochi Games, taking home the gold for the most expensive Olympics of all time.

The 2022 Winter Olympics’ budget is much smaller, at $3.9 billion, but the Games could still cost more than that, according to the Wall Street Journal. China’s original budget for the 2008 Olympics was $4.6 billion, but the Games went about $35 billion over budget.

Beijing 'will have enough snow' for 2022 Winter Olympics
Xinhua Excerpt

PYEONGCHANG - Beijing will have enough snow, natural or manmade, for the 2022 Winter Olympics, an official from the Beijing Organizing Committee for the 2022 Olympic Winter Games (BOCOG) said here on Saturday.

Chang Yu, the director of media and communications department of BOCOG, told reporters at a press conference, "We don't have a lot of snow in Beijing's urban area, but luckily, those venues in this area will not be affected because they are for ice events and opening and closing ceremonies."

The snow sports will be held in north Beijing's mountainous Yanqing district and Zhangjiakou of Hebei Province.

"In Yanqing, the average annual snowfall is about 53 milimeters and that of Zhangjiakou is 39. We will have enough water resources (to make snow). We are preparing relative technologies to keep up with IOC requirements. "

Yanqing, located 74 kilometers northwest of central Beijing, will host five events including Alpine skiing, bobsleigh, skeleton and luge while Zhangjiakou, 180km away from Beijing, stage snowbarding, freestyle skiing, cross country skiing, ski jumping, nordic combined and biathlon.

The snow used for Winter Olympic Games is normally manmade. At least 98 per cent of the snow for the PyeongChang Olympics is fake although the annual snowfall here is about 152 milimeters, almost three times of Yanqing.

China’s Approach to 2022 Winter Olympics: Faster, Higher, Stronger, Cheaper
Beijing tried to wow the world with the 2008 Games. Now, building is relatively restrained in a town that will host key events.
Wall Street Journal Excerpt
Feb. 22, 2018

A decade ago, China pulled out all the stops in an effort to dazzle the world for the Beijing Summer Olympics, spending an estimated $42 billion and building showcase projects such as the “Bird’s Nest” stadium that sits mostly empty now.

Preparations for 2022 Olympics gearing up
China Daily Excerpt

China's preparation this year for the 2022 Winter Olympics will focus on venue readiness and training of Games-related staff, according to local governments.

Despite the deep winter chill and tough outdoor conditions, construction sites in northern Beijing's Olympic park and its mountainous Yanqing district are bustling with workers and machinery in the process of building the National Speed Skating Oval, the National Alpine Skiing Center and National Sliding Center, three new venues of the 26 needed for the Olympics over three zones-in Beijing's downtown, Yanqing and the capital's co-host Zhangjiakou, Hebei province.

Major structures of all four new competition venues in Beijing, including the Big Air slope in Shougang Industrial Park, will be completed by the end of this year

With three years to go before the Olympics opens in February 2022, construction will be accelerated. Major structures of all four new competition venues in Beijing, including the Big Air slope in Shougang Industrial Park, will be completed by the end of this year, according to the city's construction regulatory body.

Completion of the Alpine skiing center in Yanqing within two years will allow the first official test event for the 2022 Winter Olympics, an international Alpine skiing race, to run on the mountain slope in early 2020, according to Wang Gang, director of Beijing Major Projects Construction Headquarters Office.

"We are well ahead of schedule in preparing all the venues for the Games with all the new venues in downtown Beijing and Yanqing to take shape this year," he said on Monday during the annual session of the Beijing Municipal People's Congress.

The office also said that the transformation of eight existing venues from the 2008 Summer Olympics, to serve competition, ceremony and media functions in 2022, is in full swing and is expected to be complete in early 2021.

The repurposing of the National Aquatics Center-known as the Water Cube for hosting swimming in 2008-into the Ice Cube for curling in 2022, and the National Indoor Stadium, built for gymnastics at the Summer Games, into the ice hockey arena, will be the main focus this year, according to the city's municipal development and reform commission.

Major progress is also expected in Zhangjiakou this year as Hebei Governor Xu Qin revealed on Monday that all eight competition and noncompetition venues for six snow-based sports-snowboarding, freestyle skiing, cross-country skiing, ski jumping, Nordic combined and biathlon-in the city's mountainous Chongli district are scheduled to be finished this year.

"Hebei will construct the venues and supporting infrastructure for the Games with high quality," Xu said in a government work report to an annual session of the provincial people's congress.

Chongli district, about 150 kilometers northwest of Beijing, will be connected by a high-speed railway with Beijing, which will cut the travel time from the current three hours by bus to 50 minutes once construction is completed by the end of this year.

Chongli is also striving to develop a winter sports industry, with 15 overseas companies having signed development deals with local partners in winter tourism, equipment manufacturing and education, according to the work report.
