Romanian Olympic Committee Chairman Mihai Kovaliu said in an exclusive interview with Xinhua News Agency reporters that although the new crown epidemic is still prevalent, Beijing will host an unprecedented Green Winter Olympics and has made great efforts for it.

Kovaliu said, “We are grateful for China‘s tremendous efforts to host the Winter Olympics and Paralympics.” This sporting event will greatly enhance people’s confidence in returning to normal life after the epidemic.

Kovaliu represented Romania in four Olympic Games from 1996 to 2008, won the 2000 Sydney Olympic Sabre champion, and officially retired after winning the bronze medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Kovaliu spoke highly of the construction of venues and facilities for the Beijing Winter Olympics. “The biggest feature of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics is the renovation of the 2008 Olympic venues and facilities to make them a high-level, green and sustainable winter sports facility. “He specifically mentioned the successful transformation from the “Water Cube” of the 2008 Olympic Games to the “Ice Cube” of the 2022 Winter Olympics.

The top official of the ROOC said that in order to host the Winter Olympics, “China has set the goal of environmental protection and a cleaner competition environment for athletes.” After the Winter Olympics, these first-class facilities will become the future of ice and snow sports. A training and competition venue for enthusiasts.

When talking about Romania’s medal goals at this Winter Olympics, Covaliu said that Romania will send 25-30 athletes to participate in skating, snowmobiles, sleds, steel-framed snowmobiles, and biathlons in the Beijing Winter Olympics. In the competitions of alpine skiing and other events, the snow car event is the most likely to win medals, hoping to end the half-century history of missing the medals of the Winter Olympics. Prior to this, Romania won its only Winter Olympic medal in the double snowmobile competition at the Grenoble Winter Olympics in France in 1968.

When talking about the new crown epidemic prevention measures adopted by the Beijing Winter Olympics, Kovaliu said that he believes that the strict epidemic prevention measures of the Beijing Winter Olympics will be followed by the majority of participating athletes, so as to ensure the safe and successful holding of this event.
