Young Chinese pair Sui Wenjing/Han Cong expect Beijing to win the Winter Olympics bid. "Of course I want to compete the 2022 Winter Games in Beijing," Han said.

Chinese skater Yan Han said he wants to compete in 2022 if Beijing wins the bid.

Non-Chinese skaters also expressed their anticipation for a Winter Games in Beijing.

"I think Beijing can hold the Winter Olympic Games very well as they have already hosted an amazing Summer Olympic Games," said Hungary's ice dance skater Adam Lukacs.

Japan's reigning Olympic champion Yuzaru Hanyu said: "Beijing is very close to Japan, so it is convenient for me."

Aizhan Madumarova is a photographer from Kazakhstan's Tengrinews who enjoyed her first trip to China.

"It is my first time in China, and everything is great. The shuttle bus is exactly on time and all the staff are professional and helpful," the Kazak said.

"The atmosphere is a big surprise, and I met audience from Japan, Canada, the United States, and other countries."

Talking about Almaty's 2022 bid against Beijing, the Kazak native seemed not so affirmative, saying: "It will cost a lot of money for Almaty to host an Olympic Games because we need to build a lot of venues."
