Xinhua News Agency Beijing, January 29 (reporter Jiang Hong)The opening ceremony of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics is just five days away.More than 30,000 visitors from all over the world, including ice athletes, members of the Olympic family and journalists, are arriving in Beijing.28 the Chinese foreign ministry also announced the coming to China to attend the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony and related activities of the international dignitaries, including the Russian President vladimir putin, the UN secretary-general, Antonio guterres, the director-general of tam kung plug, dozens of foreign heads of state and head of government, members of the royal family and the international organization, I will visit Beijing.Many of them have traveled thousands of miles and some are visiting China for the first time.On January 13, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres stressed that the Olympics can promote world peace.Guterres has confirmed that he will attend the Beijing Winter Olympic Games.Under the international background that the global epidemic is still spreading, the economy is going through a difficult time, such a grand and luxurious global event is like a beam of light to illuminate and warm all the villagers of the global village.Beijing is ready for the feast!In the past few years, especially in recent months, the so-called “boycott” and “not sending government officials to participate” by some Western anti-China politicians have become the biggest international joke of 2022.Russian President Vladimir Putin said on January 25 that both Russia and China oppose the politicization of sports and the “show boycott” and abide by the Olympic spirit of equality and justice.”Show boycott” is a very accurate and vivid expression of the nature of some Western politicians who try to make a show of sports, only to be slapped in the face.I remember that before the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, a few western anti-China forces staged a “boycott” farce, but it did not affect the Beijing Olympic Games to become an “unparalleled” event and engraved in the Olympic history.In the process of preparing for the Beijing Winter Olympics, some Western politicians once again played the noisy “boycott” game they are good at. After being condemned and criticized by athletes from all over the world who firmly defend their interests in sports career and the right to participate in the Olympics, they threw out the gimmick of “not sending officials to the Beijing Winter Olympics”.No matter what absurd “unimaginative” they throw out, they are just self-deceiving “high spirits”, which cannot shake the yearning and expectation of the world’s ice athletes for the Beijing Winter Olympics, and cannot shake the progress that Beijing will once again provide the world with a splendid event that will make history as the “city of double Olympics”.Fireworks display during the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games on August 8, 2008.Foreign athletes, officials and media journalists who have arrived in Beijing have all praised the perfect venues, thoughtful reception, accurate and strict yet humanized epidemic prevention and control measures.In the closed loop, at the venues and in the media center, you saw the hospitality and efficiency of the organizers, and the orderly work and life of foreign visitors in China. The curtain of the Winter Olympics just opened.”I don’t believe any country is better prepared or more capable to host the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics at this moment,” said a foreign blogger named “Living in China” during a live broadcast on overseas social media.International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said that this is the first time for some countries to send delegations to the Winter Olympic Games, which fully demonstrates the broad support of the international community for the Beijing Winter Olympics.Thomas Bach, president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), delivers a speech via video link at a ceremony marking the 100-day countdown to the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing on Oct 25, 2021.As spring begins in the Year of the Tiger in 2022, the world gathers in Beijing and focuses on China, proving an ancient Chinese wisdom: “Virtue is not solitary, but neighbors must be.”Ahead of the Tokyo Games six months ago, the IOC updated the century-old Olympic motto to “Swifter, Higher, Stronger — More united”.This is also the common aspiration of all villagers in the global village.The Beijing Winter Olympics is the first comprehensive global sports event to be held as scheduled since the COVID-19 pandemic. As The President of the Ukrainian Olympic Committee Alexi Boubouka said, sports help people overcome difficulties together, and the Beijing Winter Olympics will send a firm signal that mankind can unite to defeat the epidemic.When the ancient Chinese civilization and the Olympic civilization meet again in the Year of Yin and Tiger, when the Olympic ideal of swifter, higher, stronger and more united meets the Chinese wisdom of building a community with a shared future for mankind, it will surely spark brilliant human wisdom and explore a bright future for the development of earth civilization.
