Beijing on Tuesday of January 6 submitted its 2022 Winter Olympic Games official bid to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at the IOC headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Beijing’s submission came one day earlier before the deadline for candidate cities to present their candidature files to the IOC.  Chinese Olympic Committee president Liu Peng handed Beijing’s Guarantees to the IOC executive director for the Olympic Games Christophe Dubi on Tuesday morning.

Beijing 2022 Bid Committee president and mayor of Beijing Wang Anshun presented the bidding report to Jacqueline Barrett, who is in charge of the IOC candidate cities relations.

Beijing will co-host the Games with Zhangjiakou, a Hebei province city some 200 kilometers northwest of Beijing, if it wins the 2022 bid. Ice sports will be staged in Beijing while snow events will be held in Zhangjiakou.

The bidding report, which contained 14 themes ranging from Beijing’s vision, legacy, engagement, transport, accommodation, finance and sustainability, showcased Beijing’s commitment for an athletes-oriented, sustainable, economical Winter Games.

On July 7, 2014, The IOC Executive Board unanimously agreed Oslo, Almaty and Beijing became candidate cities for the Olympic Winter Games 2022. However, Norway’s Oslo withdrew its bid due to lack of domestic supports.

Almaty will submit its bidding report on the same day.

The IOC will send its Evaluation Commission to visit each city between February and March. The Commission’s report, highlighting the risks and opportunities of the candidate cities’ projects, will be published prior to the IOC 2022 Briefing for IOC members which will take place in June.

The election of the 2022 host city by the IOC Session will take place in Kuala Lumpur of Malaysia on July 31, 2015.
