Using green electricity。
The world's first flexible DC power grid project from Zhangbei to Beijing was fully put into operation in June 2020. All the venues of the Winter Olympics are 100 percent green for the first time in the history of the Olympics.。
This also means green electricity will be delivered to tens of millions of Beijing residents. This will provide clean energy and drastically reduce carbon emissions.。

The preparations for the Winter Olympic Games are in the sprinting stage, and that includes preferential tax policies.。
Compared with the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games, the tax policies for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games have many special features. For example, there was no water resource tax relief in the 2008 Olympics, because the Winter Olympic Games are carrying out two major projects with ice and snow.。

"Ice and snow benefiting people" in Beijing and Hebei。
The Capital Indoor Stadium was opened to the public recently, with a free skating area and public classes taught by many world champions. At the same time, the Capital Indoor Stadium proposed an "Ice and snow benefiting people" program, guaranteeing the country's skating rinks will be open to the public for free at least one day per month. 33 stadiums in Beijing and Hebei have joined the program so far.。
Even more sporting areas。
About 90,000 square meters of additional sporting areas have been opened to the public along the Winter Olympic line. The overall progress of the project has been 80 percent completed, and it is planned to be fully finished by the end of December.。
A green park has been built for residents, and there are other sports areas such as a basketball court, a football court and table tennis court under construction that will be officially put into use next year.。

Feature: Runner Wang Manyi never says 'satisfied'******
by Sportswriters Zheng Xin, Yao Youming
XI'AN, China, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- "Are you satisfied with today's result?"
Each time he faced this kind of question, Wang Manyi, the disabled athlete from northwest China's Gansu province, was always reluctant to say if he was satisfied or not.
"I've achieved the goal," he said that instead.
His given name, Manyi, means "satisfied" in Chinese Mandarin.
At the marathon event of the 11th National Games for Persons with Disabilities kicked off on Tuesday, Wang rushed out of the starting line as the bell rang.
This moment came one month later than he expected.
China's 14th National Games and 11th Nation Games Persons with Disabilities marathon event was initially set on September 26, and it could be the first time the two Games' marathons were held simultaneously. However, due to the bad weather in the host province's Xi'an city, only able-bodied athletes participated in the competitions.
"What a shame for me," Wang said, adding that the change of schedule upset his whole preparation plan.
Wang, the defending champion in the marathon event and a four-time gold medalist at the men's 10,000m on track, is undoubtedly a big name of the visually challenged persons' long-distance running in China. Born in 1990 with congenital cataracts in a remote village in Gansu, he started running in the mountains in 2002 and then became a professional.
"At first, the local disabled persons federation coach told me to play blind football, but I was crazy about running and stuck to that," he said.
This is the fifth time he has featured in the country's highest multi-sport gala for disabled persons. Collecting over ten medals, he was still full of passion in the stadium. At his first event, held on October 23, men's 10,000m, Wang created a new national record of 32:08.19, over 48 seconds faster than the record he set two years ago.
"Cheers surround me and that made me excited," he said after the competition.
Due to the COVID-19 local transmission in Gansu, very few staff members and media reporters of the province came to Xi'an this time, but volunteers and other delegation officials on the course still offered him warm applause.
Before he participated in the marathon, Wang also attended the men's 1500m one day before, which nearly exhausted him.
"I grabbed a bronze medal in the 1500m race, but I am too tired," he said, explaining that he felt he could not carry on in about four kilometers before the finishing line at the marathon.
"I can feel the runner-up was following me very close, but the belief in winning the championship supported me to finish the race," he said.
Marathon is an event for the brave who competes with himself in the lonely journey, particularly for the disabled athlete like Wang whose vision is blurred. Surrounded by applause, he claimed the championship in the visually impaired category again and refreshed his PB (personal best) to 2:31:57.
"After age 30, it is quite difficult for me to improve my PB by even one second," Wang said, adding that he just wanted to keep his current performance as long as possible.
According to Wang he is more optimistic and magnanimous than before and has never insisted on the opportunity to participate in the Paralympic Games or created lots of new national records.
He attributed the changes to his family. In 2017, his daughter was born in Lanzhou, the capital city of Gansu. Because he and his wife are both disabled persons, he was a bit nervous about the baby's health condition.
As time flies by, the girl becomes more adorable and healthier as she grows up. "She always cheered me up," Wang said, "what's more, she recorded lots of videos on the cellphone to tell me 'go papa go' in recent days."
Waiting for the starting of his very last event, men's 5000m, on Thursday in the stadium, his mind already flew back to his hometown along with his wife and daughter. However, the homesickness didn't bother Wang, who lapped nearly all of his other opponents on the track and attained the gold with a brand-new national record 15:21.85.
He sat on the ground for over one minute to hear and "feel" other runners finish the race.
"Three gold and one bronze medals were collected in the bag. That was what I planned to achieve before I came to Shaanxi but I could have done better," said he.
See, there are no "satisfied" words whatsoever.
But in his heart, there would be no more satisfying things bigger than being a member of a happy family as well as being a champion in the National Games. Enditem
