The opening ceremony of the 24th Winter Olympic Games will be held in Beijing, China at 20pm on February 4, 2022, making Beijing the only city in the world to host both summer and Winter Olympic Games.As the name implies, the Winter Olympic Games are the International Olympic Games held in winter. In fact, the origin of the Winter Olympic Games is closely related to the Olympic Games. The Winter Olympic Games and the Summer Olympic Games are both sponsored by the International Olympic Committee and are world-class sports events.In at the beginning of the birth of the modern Olympic Games, there is no winter Olympics at the beginning, as snow and ice movement within the European and American countries more and more popular, and so on the fourth session of the Olympic Games held in London in 1908 increased figure skating project, held to Antwerp, in 1920 the seventh games added ice hockey projects, also had the audience’s warm welcome.But then, as a result of skating and ice hockey project has rigid requirements on factors such as weather, summer Olympics to be held from summer to winter Olympics to be held only in the winter, a time span for the celebration of the Olympic Games for more than five months, it, for any host country is the huge challenge on manpower and material resources.Against this background, there are growing calls for the winter Olympics to be held separately from the ice and snow events. The time has come to host the Winter Olympics.In 1924, at the suggestion of Pierre de Coubertin, the father of the modern Olympics, the first Winter Olympics were held in chamonix, France, from January 25, 1924 to February 4, 1924.A total of 294 athletes from 16 countries and regions participated in 14 individual competitions in four sports including skiing, skating, ice hockey and bobsleigh. Norway led the way with four gold MEDALS, seven silver MEDALS and seven bronze MEDALS.The 1928 Winter Olympic Games were held in St. Moritz, Switzerland from February 11, 1928 to February 19, 1928. A total of 464 athletes from 25 countries and regions competed in four sports. This year, skeleton was included in the Winter Olympic Games for the first time.It was also the first time in human history that the Winter Olympics were held in a different city from the summer Olympics.In the same year, Japan sent five athletes to the Olympics, becoming the first Asian country to compete in the Winter Olympics in Asian history.St moritz, Switzerland, on February 4, 1932 to February 15, 1932, in the United States plessy lake hosted the third Olympic winter games, a total of 17 countries and regions, 252 athletes competing in four categories, the winter of this year’s Olympic Games organizers on changing the speed skating contest rules to north American rules, makes the United States covers all four gold MEDALS,America!The U.S. managed to dethrone Norway, who had won the medal count twice in a row.From February 6, 1936 to February 16, 1936, garmisch-Partenkirchen held the 4th Winter Olympic Games in Germany, a total of 28 countries and regions of 669 athletes participated in the competition, this winter Olympic Games formally introduced the alpine downhill and super Giant slalom alpine skiing these two events.Then 1940 and 1944 were suspended because of World War II.World War II ended in 1945, and the fifth Winter Olympics resumed from 30 January 1948 to 8 February 1948, hosted for the second time by St. Moritz, Switzerland. A total of 28 countries competed.From February 14, 1952 to February 25, 1952, the sixth Winter Olympic Games were held in The Winter Olympic gold medal country Norway Oslo, a total of 30 countries participated.From January 26, 1956 to February 5, 1956, the 7th Winter Olympic Games were held in Cortina D ‘Ampezzo, Italy, a total of 32 countries participated.From February 3, 1972 to February 13, 1972, the 11th Winter Olympic Games were held in Sapporo, Japan. It was the first time that the Winter Olympic Games were held in Asian City University, and also the first time that the Winter Olympic Games were held in cities of non-European and American countries. A total of 35 countries participated in the competition.I have to say that After the Meiji Restoration, Japan seized the opportunity of The Times and rose to become a world-class country. Many Asian cities, including the first Asian city to host the Summer Olympic Games and the first Asian city to host the Winter Olympic Games, were born in Japan.In the future, at least in Asia, the lion has awakened and the dragon has opened its eyes to the world!Sapporo, Japan February 7, 1998 to February 22, 1998, Nagano, Japan successfully held the 18th Winter Olympic Games, a total of 72 countries to participate in the competition, the event has increased to 14 events.The 23rd Winter Olympic Games will be held in Pyeongchang, South Korea from February 9, 2018 to February 25, 2018. It is the third time that an Asian country has hosted the Winter Olympic Games.The 24th Winter Olympic Games will be held from February 4, 2022 to February 20, 2022 in Beijing and Zhangjiakou, China, with delegations from 91 countries or regions participating.According to the statistics, we can clearly found that the winter Olympic Games now has successfully held the 24th, the host city in Asia only four times, born in China, South Korea and Japan, respectively, which can be seen that the east Asian monster house, is not only the strength of the military economic and cultural, also on sports in Asia is also a monster house, still has the highest in Asia’s overall strength.It was held 15 times in European cities and 5 times in North American cities respectively in the United States and Canada, two developed countries.In general, all the cities that can successfully host the Winter Olympic Games are the embodiment of a country’s strong comprehensive national strength. It is safe to say that no country that can host the Winter Olympic Games is weak, either a developed country or a country with strong comprehensive strength.In terms of gold MEDALS, the first 23 Winter Olympics in history produced 1,062 gold MEDALS, 1,058 silver MEDALS and 1,050 bronze MEDALS, totaling 3,170 MEDALS.It is a coincidence that the top three gold medal winners are also the top three medal winners: Germany, Russia and Norway, followed by the United States and Canada.Plessy DE lake in the United States in 1980 at the Olympic winter games, 13 groups competing for the first time in China, then in the 1992 Olympic winter games in albertville speed skating on the ice star Ye Qiaobo realized the winter Olympic Games medal zero breakthrough for China, the 2002 Salt Lake City winter Olympics short track speed skating star Yang for China to achieve the winter Olympics gold medal zero breakthrough.So far, China has participated in 11 Winter Olympics and won 13 gold MEDALS, 28 silver MEDALS and 21 bronze MEDALS, ranking 17th in the gold medal table.Speaking of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, I am still full of pride. Perhaps in the near future, speaking of the 2022 Beijing Olympic Winter Games, I believe all Chinese people are full of pride!As the epidemic spreads, the world’s attention is focused on China. People around the world have set up a window of communication between China and the rest of the world through the Winter Olympics. The world will be shocked by China again!
