The Beijing Organizing Committee for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games sent a thank-you letter to volunteer applicants who were not selected, and expressed gratitude for their support in the preparation work of the Games.

The letter said the COVID-19 pandemic has brought great challenges to many aspects of the preparation work, and the committee has adjusted requirements for volunteers in consideration of virus control and prevention.

"Although you were not selected as a volunteer of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics, every applicant is an excellent promoter for the Olympic spirit and volunteerism," the committee said in the letter.

Many applicants said they were moved by the touching letter and posted their replies online.

A netizen named Joleen-kun said their application has been seen, which is something to be proud of.

Another netizen Xiguali commented their enthusiasm has been respected and the committee is warm to pay attention to details and send a letter like this.

According to the Beijing 2022 Organizing Committee, more than 1 million people applied to serve as volunteers and nearly 20,000 were selected, most of whom are from colleges and universities in Beijing and Hebei province.
