On the morning of September 17th, the third meeting of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics Coordination Committee of the International Olympic Committee was held in the Shougang Office District of the Beijing Winter Olympics Organizing Committee. Gou Zhongwen, Director of the General Administration of Sport of China, Chairman of the Chinese Olympic Committee, and Executive Chairman of the Beijing Winter Olympics Organizing Committee; Xu Qin, Deputy Secretary of the Hebei Provincial Party Committee, Governor, and Executive Chairman of the Beijing Winter Olympics Organizing Committee; and Zhang Haidi, Chairman of the China Disabled Persons’ Federation and Executive Chairman of the Beijing Winter Olympics Organizing Committee, attended the opening ceremony. Juan Antonio Samaranch, Vice President of the International Olympic Committee and Chairman of the Beijing Winter Olympics Coordination Committee, delivered a speech at the opening ceremony. That afternoon, the IOC team inspected the Shougang skiing platform and other places. In the model section of the high-line park located on the north side of Qunming Lake in Shougang Beijing Park, Samaranch led a delegation of 45 members of the International Olympic Committee; Zhang Jiandong, Deputy Mayor of Beijing and Executive Vice President of  the Beijing Winter Olympics Organizing Committee; Yang Shu’an, Vice Chairman of the Beijing Winter Olympics Organizing Committee and Vice Chairman of the Chinese Olympic Committee; Han Zirong, Secretary General of the Beijing Winter Olympics Organizing Committee; and Zhang Gongyan and Wang Shizhong, leaders of the Shougang Group. They went to the three-story platform to view and listen to the introduction and learn more about the transformation of Shougang Park, the skiing platform project, and the Winter Training Center of the General Administration of Sport and Shijingshan.

The Shougang High-line Park under construction will be an air-linear public space integrating slow traffic, functional connection, viewing and leisure, fitness and entertainment. It’s about 10 kilometers long and 10 to 16 meters from the ground, making it the longest air corridor in the world. The model section of the visit is located on the north side of Qunming Lake. Based on the existing pipeline gallery, the existing industrial heritage components are used to set up different levels of the landscape platform. One level is a complete waterfront walking corridor, and the lower floor is equipped with a public leisure space including a hydrophilic platform, a water stage, and a coffee shop.

Standing on the south side of the platform, the winding Qunming Lake cloister and the towering cooling tower are all in sight. Four gold medals will be awarded here at the 2022 Winter Olympics. Samaranch and his party learned about the planning and design of the large platform and watched the surrounding scenery. They repeatedly praised the protective transformation of Shougang Industrial Heritage. On the north side of the platform is the Winter Training Center of the General Administration of Sport. Samaranch and his party learned in detail about the living environment and training of athletes and coaches. They said that they are very happy to see Shougang is transforming towards sustainable development and becoming a new driving force for urban development.
