"Athletes' convenience will be a primary criteria. Our service will be comprehensive and of high-level in training, competition, accommodation, transportation, catering, medical care and cultural communication," said Beijing mayor and bid president Wang Anshun.

Wang said Beijing will make a meticulous budget plan to lower cost on the condition that the Games can be staged successfully.

"Beijing will lower the cost of staging the Games through thorough marketing, proper arrangement of venues and activities on the condition that the Games can be delivered successfully," he said.

According to the report, stadiums from the Beijing 2008 Olympics, including the Water Cube swimming center and the national indoor stadium, can serve as 2022 venues.

If Beijing wins the bid, some of the 2022 venues will be set up in Zhangjiakou, a Hebei province city some 200 kilometers northwest of Beijing. Beijing is going to host ice sports with snow events to be held in Zhangjiakou.
