Although the 2022 Winter Olympic Games are still more than five years away, the Chinese capital has already started preparing to co-host the event, Sun Xiaochen reports.

As Rio de Janeiro prepares for the start of the 2016 Summer Olympics in just five days, Beijing is looking ahead and laying the groundwork for the 2022 Winter Olympics by drafting preparatory guidelines for the coming six years.

In the year since they were awarded the Games, Beijing and co-host Zhangjiakou in Hebei province have been busy designing venues, training staff and building up infrastructure for the winter sports extravaganza.
