"Cheering for the Olympics 2022" - Jiannan Huang Travels to Inspire Students
In June 2020, the Organizing Committee for the Beijing Winter Olympics 2022, officially launched the "Courage for the Olympics, Everlasting Love Action - A Journey of Beauty”. In preparation, the organizing committee for "Cheers for the Olympics" has planned a number of events for youth involving sports and cultural activities on campuses throughout the country. "Cheering for the Olympics" is a cultural and sports project approved and sponsored by the International Olympic Committee. It aims to combine Chinese culture with the Olympic spirit. The organizing committee hopes that through these activities, young people will learn more about the culture of the Olympics, experience the Olympic spirit, and jointly contribute to the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.
The first stop on the ""Courage for the Olympics, Everlasting Love Action - A Journey of Beauty” campus tour was the Nanxingqu Primary School in the Economic Development Zone of Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province.
