on the same day, the State Council Information Office held a press conference on the green winter Olympics and sustainable development of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games and winter Paralympic Games. Li Sen made the above statement when answering reporters’ questions

Li Sen said that promoting the development of China’s ice and snow sports is one of the important objectives of bidding for and preparing for the Winter Olympic Games and the winter Paralympic Games. Taking the opportunity of the preparation for the Winter Olympics, China’s ice and snow sports have developed rapidly in recent years. “The data just released by the State Sports Administration shows that the number of people participating in ice and snow sports has reached 346 million. By the end of 2020, there are 654 standard ice rinks and 803 indoor and outdoor ski resorts in China. The grand goal of’driving 300 million people to participate in ice and snow sports’ has become a reality.”

Li Sen also said that the development of ice and snow sports is a long-term rather than a short-term behavior. China has a huge population. From the perspective of population base and development needs, there are not many venues for winter sports in China. “After the Winter Olympic Games, we will have great development in this area. We will not stop, but will get better and more.” (end)
