The Chinese government, in hosting the Winter Olympics, has actively promoted winter sports, and that has successfully spread to some of its population. Even if the Olympics are being held with strict COVID-19 prevention measures, there was still a festive air in the capital city. At the Winter Olympics Culture Plaza in Beijing, neighborhood dance troupes performed as families gathered to join in the excitement.

Much of the event was staffed by volunteers like Zhang Xinrui, a senior from the School of Philosophy, Beijing Normal University. "The Winter Olympics are a grand international festival. Being able to participate in this as a server and a volunteer is a hugely important thing for me as a college student, and even in my life." she told the Associated Press.
