client Beijing, January 13 – “the post competition utilization of venues is a worldwide problem for large-scale sports events held all over the world. We will try to solve this problem in the process of bidding, preparation and holding this Beijing winter Olympic Games.” Li Sen, director of the overall planning department of the Beijing Winter Olympic Organizing Committee, said on the 13th

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

a reporter said that in the previous winter Olympic Games, there were more or less problems in the insufficient utilization of venues after the competition and some energy was not renewable. How did the Beijing Winter Olympic Games give a Chinese plan to solve this problem

in this regard, Li Sen said that the Beijing Winter Olympic Games used six Olympic venues in 2008 and fully learned from their experience in post competition utilization. All our newly-built venues have formulated post competition utilization plans, and fully considered the post competition utilization problems in planning and design, coordinated planning and synchronous design, so as to effectively reduce costs

Leeson summarized the “China plan” into four aspects. First, these venues should actively bid for and hold high-level events after the games. The competition venues of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games are world-class venues. During the preparation process, local sports departments and venue owners have established a good cooperation and communication mechanism with international winter individual sports organizations. After the games, they will continue to bid for and host high-level international and domestic events, so as to drive the operation of the venues through high-level events, It also contributes to the development of ice and snow sports

Second, it is fully open to the public. In addition to competitive competitions, the venues will provide sports and fitness services to the public. All new venues have fully considered how to open to the public at the beginning of planning and design. For example, the “ice ribbon” of the national speed skating Museum has an ice surface design of 12000 square meters

“At that time, all ice was considered in order to consider how to open up to the society, because the road speed skating mainly uses the 400m track in the outer ring, and there will be two standard ice rinks in the core part, which is our innovative part. After the competition, it can accommodate 2000 people on the ice at the same time. For another example, a smaller project, the national snowmobile sledge center and the national snowmobile sledge center in Yanqing, are the best in the world The 17th track, this project has a high risk of movement. Therefore, in the planning and design, we opened a public exit in the lower 1 / 3 and slower place, leaving a departure area for the public, which also provides conditions for opening to the public after the race. ”

Third, the four seasons operation of the venue. “Winter sports are greatly affected by the season. Ice sports are better because they are indoor ice rinks. Ice can be made all year round. They can be open to the public and hold large-scale events and cultural and leisure activities. For snow venues, Yanqing and Zhangjiakou competition areas can only carry out project experience and competition in winter.”

“In view of this situation, in the planning and construction of mountain venues in mountainous areas, starting from the competition area as a whole, we have fully considered the operation in spring, summer and autumn, made use of the cultural, historical and natural ecological advantages of the competition area, established outdoor sports, such as fitness running, cross-country running, mountain biking, mountaineering and rock climbing, and accelerated the development of regional characteristic tourism and leisure and mountain vacation , outdoor sports and other industries to realize the four seasons operation of venues. ”

Fourth, realize the linkage development of venues and regions. For the post competition utilization of venues, Li Sen believes that this is not to consider the operation of a venue in isolation, but to integrate into the development of the region and plan and promote it as a whole

“For example, Yanqing competition area relies on the Winter Olympic competition area and Winter Olympic venues, including the world horticultural exposition and the Great Wall. These are the three golden business cards of Yanqing competition area, which is equivalent to the linkage development of the three golden business cards. With global tourism as the leading role, Yanqing competition area vigorously develops characteristic sports and cultural tourism industries. Similarly, Zhangjiakou competition area relies on venues to promote Zhangjiakou to build a national, seasonal, full-time and Global Asia Ice and snow tourist resort destination and’Sports City’. ”

Li Sen revealed that BOCOG has also actively promoted the linkage development of venues and ice and snow sports resources in the three competition areas, fully integrated with mass ice and snow facilities, sports facilities and natural and cultural tourism resources along the Beijing Zhangjiakou line, and built a Beijing Zhangjiakou sports and cultural tourism belt with the help of rapid communication links such as Beijing Zhangjiakou high-speed railway and Beijing Lishui expressway, so as to drive the high-quality development of surrounding areas, Mutual promotion and common development, so as to realize the repeated, comprehensive and sustainable utilization of Winter Olympic venues.
