China Pictorial (English) - - NEWS -

March 18, Pyeongchang, South Korea: Ac­tors per­form at the Beijing 2022 pre­sen­ta­tion dur­ing the clos­ing cer­e­mony of the 2018 Pyeongchang Win­ter Par­a­lympic Games. The show, in­spired by the song “I Want to Fly,” was a per­fect match with the em­blem of the Beijing 2022 Win­ter Par­a­lympic Games.

The 10-day Pyeongchang Par­a­lympics at­tracted a record 567 ath­letes from 49 coun­tries and re­gions around the world in­clud­ing the Demo­cratic Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of Korea (DPRK) that par­tic­i­pated in the Win­ter Par­a­lympics for the first time. China col­lected one gold in the wheel­chair curling for its first-ever Win­ter Par­a­lympic medal.

The next Win­ter Olympics and Par­a­lympics will be held in Beijing in 2022, when the Chinese cap­i­tal will be­come the first city to host both Sum­mer and Win­ter Olympics and Par­a­lympics. With this per­for­mance, China once again gave the world a warm in­vi­ta­tion to Beijing.
