"Beijing 2022 can set a new benchmark for a sustainable Olympic Games, on one hand benefiting from the legacy of the Beijing 2008 and on the other developing a new winter sports destination in a sustainable way," the IOC president Thomas Bach spoke highly of how China's ideas contributed to the international Olympic Movement.

"Just think about the 300 million participants in winter sports. It is a remarkable contribution to the Olympics in itself," Yang Yang stated, who opened the Feiyang Skating Center to encourage more people in the country to participate in winter sports. "The dream enables us to see the future, motivates us to move forward, and constantly surpass ourselves."

Besides, China plans to compete in all 109 events in 2022 Games, a number which is unprecedented and will certainly bring a new momentum to winter sports in China.

Yao Ming was also on the bid team as one of the six Beijing 2022 bid ambassadors, "Many Chinese people have adopted a sporting lifestyle since Beijing 2008," which not only helped transform the city into an international cosmopolitan destination, but also solidified a deep sporting culture, he said.

The basketball player now serves as the president of the Chinse Basketball Association since the year of 2017. A string of basketball institutional reforms has been implemented under his leadership.

Yao, alongside with other two sports icons Lang Ping and Xu Haifeng, were among the 100 people selected to be awarded for their contributions to the country's reform and opening-up in 2018.

In addition to Yao's basketball reform, Chinese government also published "the Overall Plan for China's Football Reform and Development" in 2015, planing to transform the country into a footballing powerhouse by 2050.

The in-depth reforms have been practiced in various aspects of the Chinese Sports.

As the reforms go deep, the sports industry starts to flourish. From 2014 to 2018, China's sports industry had increased from 1.35 trillion yuan to 2.2 trillion yuan (190-310 billion US dollars), with an average annual growth rate of 18 percent. In 2017, the added value of the sports industry exceeded 1 percent in the country's GDP for the first time to become a new kinetic energy for China's economic growth.

Anta, China's leading sportswear company, now ranks the third in the world, after Nike and Adidas. China's sports manufacturing industry has transformed from "made in China" to "created in China." As more and more Chinese brands go global, Chinese enterprises have grown to be an indispensable part of World Sports Marketing, which saw seven Chinese companies's presence as sponsors at 2018 Russia World Cup.

After 70 years of development, China has became a world sports power out of nowhere. Aiming to achieve wider public engagement in sport, better competitive sporting performances, a stronger sports industry, a more vibrant sporting culture, and enhanced sports exchanges, a new era of Chinese sports is yet to come.
