Full coverage: Beijing Bids for 2022 Winter Olympics

And now we're going to talk with Wang Beixin here in the studio. 

Q1: What winter sport experience can China, and specifically Beijing, fall back upon, and how can the country get more young people interested in winter sports?

Q2: Beijing hosted a fantastic Summer Olympics in 2008 that really captured the attention of the world. How important are the memories of those Games when it comes to generating interest for 2022 here in China, and around the globe?

Q3: How different is the experience leading up to the 2022 Games going to be for this generation of athletes, compared to how things were done during your career?

Q4: Of course it's not all about competition. One of the things the Olympics aims to do, whether it's the Summer or Winter Games, is to galvanize a country in a celebration of sports, and China was very successful in doing this seven years ago, but since winter sports are not as popular in the country, how might this goal be fulfilled heading toward 2022?
