Ever thought of doing the right thing at the right place? Yes, the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics is the true description of such an event. As the World continues to be divided along income, race, superiority and most importantly the Worst-ever pandemic, a perfect solace is found that re-designs the face of international friendship and co-operation.

As President Xi Jinping welcomed the triumphant entry of diplomats from all corners of the Earth at a very colorful ceremony held at the Olympics stadium, I was also right behind the screen watching the live performances with fellow students and ofcourse ten thousands of other spectators around the World that did not make it to the live event because of the social distancing measures. The state of the art Technology that was used to broadcast the event was charming! It made me think that it was a movie yet it was an event held a few kilometers from my Location.

As the event kicks off under unmatched challenges that face mankind, this should be the right time for global leaders to rethink their strategies through working together to create sustainable solutions to outstanding issues. Together for a shared future!

My assessment of the whole opening ceremony is, well done! From the stage lighting effects to the design elements, they all convey the characteristics of the Beijing Olympic Games. Many places reflect the Chinese elements, traditional culture, minority elements, high-tech, generosity, aesthetic etc. By using 3D special effects, the world saw a high tech wisdom ceremony. Cultural confidence has been seen and demonstrated. I think the best part of the opening ceremony was how it embodies the people, and they did it perfectly.

We could not go back home for he holidays due to the epidemic, but I was very happy to watch the opening ceremony with fellow international friends and several teachers from the International Students Office! It was so cute when children sang at the opening ceremony. When the athletes from every country entered the stadium, they all looked very handsome, I felt proud when I saw the Korean athletes enter the stadium.

I had heard for a long time that director Zhang Yimou will be in charge of designing the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics, and I was very excited about how the ceremony would be designed. I was so amazed and shocked when watching it last night. The beginning of the ceremony wa very romantic, 24 solar terms and poetry, the interpretation of Chinese culture elements was incisive and visually aesthetic. The technical work was also perfect, I can say that the opening of the Winter Olympics allowed me see the perfect combination of technology and art.
