Beijing embellished for the Winter Olympics (+ Photos)

Beijing, Jan 31 (Prensa Latina) Beijing has been decorated with decorations that at the same time show its splendor and pride for being once again the host of an Olympic event, this time for the 24th Winter Games that will open in four days.

Large-scale arrangements, banners, giant screens and posters inspired by the central theme of the event: “Together for a Shared Future” can be seen on streets, commercial establishments and urban bus stops.

The Winter Olympic Games will be held from February 4 to 20, while the Paralympic Games will take place from March 4 to 13.

The Games will be held in bubble format in facilities built in this capital, its mountainous district of Yangqing and the neighboring city of Zhangjiakou, which implies daily PCR tests, permanent temperature monitoring, mandatory use of masks in collective areas and personal distancing.

The worsening of the Covid-19 pandemic also led to the cancellation of ticket sales and the reduction of the torch relay to only two days.

 

With Beijing-2022, China intends to leave a legacy of a sustainable, environmentally friendly and climate change-friendly approach to every aspect of the event.

The winter competitions will make the Chinese capital the only city on the planet to host both variants of the five-ring event, after hosting the summer version in 2008.
