Beijing gears up for Olympic test event

Yanqing District, around 90km northwest of Beijing, has organized activities for children to learn skating and skiing as a warm-up for the upcoming International Ski Federation (FIS) Alpine Ski World Cup.

The FIS Alpine Ski World Cup will be held in Yanqing District in about 30 days, and is one of the test events ahead of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

During this year's winter holiday, each community in the district will organize at least four Olympic-themed activities for the children.

As a major part of the activities, 3,000 students who have applied in their own neighborhoods will be able to learn skating and skiing.

Over 20,000 students in Yanqing District have received training in skating and skiing so far.

The district has also built 23 schools that train students in ice and snow events, such as short track speed skating, figure skating and ice hockey, and has also trained over 200 teenage players in various winter sports.
