Zhangjiakou, a city in Hebei province that lies 200 kilometers northwest of Beijing and one of the event venues for 2022 Winter Olympics, will build its Olympic sports center with five designs posted on local official websites for public choices and opinions.

The center, comprised of a stadium, a gymnasium, a natatorium, a speedskating rink and a ball games training venue, will cover 50 hectares and host over 70,000 people at the same time.

All the construction work of the Olympic sports center will be completed by the end of 2020 when the city is capable for holding test events, said Ma Yujun, mayor of Zhangjiakou. 

The city is committed to create an integrated ice and snow industry chain including tourism, equipment manufacturing and service by introducing enterprises from China and abroad.

"We will make breakthroughs in bringing in investments, technology and projects by strengthening communication and cooperation with Japan, South Korea, the United States and some European countries," Ma said.
