Beijing will find out next year if it is to host the 2022 Winter Olympics, and it has just released an official promotional video in support of its bid.
The bid is being made jointly with neighboring city, Zhangjiakou, and if it is successful, Beijing will become the first city to have held both the summer and winter games.
The host city for the 2022 games will be selected in Kuala Lumpur in July 2015, when the IOC will decide between Beijing and Almaty, Kazakhstan. These two cities are the only remaining bidders, following Oslo’s withdrawal at the beginning of October.
The video is most magnificently titled “Joyful Rendezvous upon Pure Ice & Snow”. Watch it below.
