"Every athlete who participated in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics understands how pressured it was to compete at a home Olympics. The mental toughness to handle weighty home expectations will play a big part in our athletes' preparations for the 2022 Beijing Winter Games. I suggest that we should involve some of the participants from 2008 to give mental consultation sessions to our winter sports Olympians to help them remain at ease."

"A successful Olympic Games is supposed to make the host city a better place, as long as we integrate preparations for the Games with economic and social developments. By staging the 2022 Winter Olympics, we expect to boost industrial developments in sports manufacturing, the regional transportation network, environmental protection and sports and leisure tourism. It's not about fulfilling a task. It's about leaving a long-lasting legacy."
