Dong Yaohui, born in 1957 in Funing, Hebei province, is a famous expert on the Great Wall.Currently he is the vice president of The Great Wall Society of China, a member of the Expert Advisory Committee of the Great Wall National Cultural Park, the president of the Great Wall Research Institute of Hebei University of Geosciences, the director of the Research and Communication Center of the Great Wall Culture of China, Yanshan University, and a special researcher of the Tourism Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.He is the author of several monographs, such as An Investigation of the Great Wall in Ming Dynasty, Tile Collection — Essays on the Great Wall research, Watch the Great Wall — Dong Yaohui on the Protection of the Great Wall, And The Great Wall: Questioning and Resonance. He has hosted and participated in a number of national Social Science Fund projects.Recently, I used the quiet time during the Spring Festival holiday to write a study on the Construction of the Great Wall National Cultural Park and watch the live broadcast of Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games.To be honest, I didn’t watch so many games in Beijing in 2008.At that time, I was busy compiling the Great Wall of China, a national 12th Five-Year Plan project and a national Publishing Fund project. I wanted to read it, but I had no time.What is the role of the central government’s plan to build a national cultural park in deepening reform and opening up?Along those lines, I wonder what role the Olympics play in China’s development.Sports, is a symbol of national prosperity, is a symbol of national cohesion.Hosting the Olympic Games is a century-old dream of the Chinese nation and a grand event for thousands of years.In 2008, the fire of the Olympic Games burned in the ancient Chinese land, and the 29th Summer Olympic Games were held in Beijing.Hosting the Olympic Games is the common aspiration of the people of all ethnic groups in China and the century-long expectation of the Chinese nation.In 1908, Tianjin Youth magazine introduced the nation to the burgeoning Olympic spectacle and asked three questions: When will China send a competitor to the Games?When will China send a team to the Olympics?When will China host the Olympics?These three problems are not only the Olympic dream of the Chinese people, but also the dream of a powerful country.The Chinese nation has created a glorious history and splendid civilization and made outstanding contributions to mankind.However, after entering modern times, old China was invaded by western powers and gradually reduced to a semi-colonial and semi-feudal society.Since the Opium War in 1840, countless patriots and revolutionary martyrs have fought bravely for the independence, independence and prosperity of the Chinese nation. After the Revolution of 1911 to the New Democratic Revolution, and from the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression to the War of Liberation, the Chinese nation has finally stood up.After the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, through the unremitting efforts of the people of all ethnic groups in China, a vibrant socialist China stood firm in the East.For more than 100 years, the Chinese nation has made persistent efforts with indomitable will and indomitable spirit to achieve national rejuvenation through arduous struggle and unremitting self-improvement.The 2008 Beijing Olympic Games is a long journey, but also a great departure.In July 2015, Beijing and Zhangjiakou won the bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics.Now, the 2022 Winter Olympics are proceeding in an intense and orderly fashion.Beijing became the first city in history to host both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games.In the face of the new situation of epidemic prevention and control, China has actively responded to the challenges and risks of the epidemic with its successful experience and innovative measures to ensure the safe hosting of the Winter Olympics.During the one-year countdown to the Beijing Winter Olympic Games, I went to Beijing Yanqing and Zhangjiakou Chongli to do on-site research with the delegation.Chinese designs, Chinese technologies, Chinese materials, and Chinese manufacturing prove China’s strength.I was thrilled with the quality and speed of hardware construction.The Winter Olympic Games in Beijing coincided with the Chinese Spring Festival. I saw foreign athletes experience Chinese culture in the Winter Olympic village. Some of them were learning to write Chinese characters, using brush strokes to write “China” and “Olympics”, while others were learning Taijiquan.The main media center of the Winter Olympics is also full of “Chinese style”, many media workshops are pasted with the Chinese character fu and Spring Festival couplets outside the door, the press conference hall is named after the 24 solar terms, there are antique Chinese stone tables and stools, antique doors, red big lanterns, small tiger ornaments.The traditional Chinese medicine culture exhibition space takes “a grass, a story, a nation, a world” as the theme, bringing people into the magical world of traditional Chinese medicine.A giant bronze man of acupuncture vividly shows acupoints and meridians. A set of Taijiquan can also be used to draw blind box gifts in various forms, including video, text and text, physical objects and AI interactive experience, demonstrating the extensive and profound culture of TRADITIONAL Chinese medicine and its contribution to the world.These ubiquitous elements of Traditional Chinese culture create a festive atmosphere and show the warmth, hospitality, unity and warmth of the Chinese people.On the field, athletes from all over the world also performed well.I didn’t expect our country to have so many excellent athletes in snow and ice sports who achieved such good results. I’m sure everyone is as happy as I am.In just 14 years from the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics to the present Beijing Winter Olympics, China has made great strides in science and technology, cultural quality and people’s mentality.I will continue to watch the Winter Olympics in the coming days.I’m sure you will too, and we will see more miracles and surprises!(Dong Yaohui) Follow hebei news network for the latest news in Hebei.
