The 2022 Winter Olympics begin in February this year.

Beijing is set to become the first city in the world to host both the Summer and Winter Olympics, but from 2008 to 2022 many things have changed.

This time, the mood of the people, the attitude of the government, the expectations of the nations of the world are all different than before.

I participated in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics and still live in the Chinese capital. By 2022, the atmosphere will definitely be very different.

Of course, the Summer Olympics always get more attention than the Winter Olympics because more countries are investing in it. By the way, the new crown is a major factor in the infection.
