Ding Dong, the executive vice director of the Winter Games Center, said that according to the Beijing Cycle preparatory work arrangement, the Winter Games Center attaches great importance to the selection and participation of national ice and snow teams.

The purpose is to truly select athletes with excellent will quality, ideological style and competitive strength to represent the country in world competitions. Then in the world competition, the best athletes are trained to participate in the Beijing Winter Olympic Games. In view of the similarities between the winter Olympic Games and the summer Olympic Games, the main reason is the national seats. That is, no matter how many athletes in a country are qualified for a certain event, which athletes are selected to participate is decided by the National Olympic Committees and individual associations. Therefore, the Winter Games Center plans to organize a series of high-level selection competitions in various events, and strive to select the best athletes in an open, fair and just manner, and ultimately achieve the objectives of all-event participation and high-level participation in the Beijing Winter Olympic Games. The selection competition of short track speed skating and speed skating is the first attempt of Chinas seat selection plan.
