Chinese people from all walks of life, across all generations, from the cultural world, artists, scientists, engineers, school children and the thousands of volunteers, all welcomed the athletes and us very, very warmly. They were greatly committed to the success of these Games.”

He concluded, “This was truly heart-warming, and was crucial for the success of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022. Therefore, it is my great honour, and pleasure, to announce, today ,that the International Olympic Committee has awarded the Olympic Cup to the people of the People’s Republic of China.”

This special recognition of the Chinese people followed the final reports by the Beijing 2022 Organising Committee and by IOC Coordination Commission Chair Juan Antonio Samaranch to the IOC Session before the close of the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022. The Session applauded Beijing 2022 for the excellent delivery of this edition of the Olympic Winter Games for the athletes and all the Games participants.
