The atmosphere of the Olympics is in the air in Beijing as the Winter Olympic Games are set to open in less than 25 days. In recent days, the capital city of China has been adorned with Olympic ele-ments that can be spotted in many places.

Inside the Shougang Industrial Park in Shijing-shan district in western Beijing, elements of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games can be seen in every corner.

Flags and banners printed with the Winter Olympic and Paralympic logos were hung around the park, which used to be a large steel plant.

Big Air Shougang in the park will host two snowboard jump and freestyle ski jump events. These are also the only two snow events that will be hosted inside Beijing city during the Olympics, according to Global Times on Wednesday.

Setting off from Shougang subway station, the Winter Olympic subway branch line will be launched on January 24, connecting the park with Jin’an Bridge station in northern Beijing. The Shou-gang station is now decorated in “Chinese red” and snowflake patterns.

On the platforms, LED displays consistently play Winter Olympics and winter sports content. Travelers are able to gain more information about the games while they wait for trains.

During the games, the screens will also broad-cast the games and update information about the event, media reported.

Inside the carriages, paintings of the two official Beijing 2022 mascots, Bing Dwen Dwen and Shuey Rhon Rhon, can been seen on every door.

Even the light fixtures in the trains are in the shape of snowflakes. Slogans of the Olympics can also be spotted inside the carriages.

Bing Dwen Dwen and Shuey Rhon Rhon have become popular in China after they were unveiled to the public in August, 2019. —APP
