As a freestyle aerial skiing athlete, I can't imagine a more valuable present for winter sportsmen than hosting 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, the capital of our nation. Winning to host 2022 Winter Olympics will not only help with economic growth but also encourage more and more to participate in winter games and appreciate the beauty of winter sports.
