Beijing took another step in promoting its 2022 Winter Olympic bid at a New Year’s celebration at the 2008 Olympic Green, including using the Bird’s Nest stadium, Water Cube and Olympic champion short track speed skater Yang Yang (A).

Beijing 2022 published a promotional video and Twitter account two months ago.

The International Olympic Committee will vote to determine the 2022 Winter Olympic host on July 31 in Kuala Lumpur.
