BEIJING, July 28 (Xinhua) -- Hosting a Winter Olympics that are athlete-centred Hakeem Olajuwon Rockets Jersey , sustainable and economical has been the foundation of the Beijing 2022 bid.
The post-Games legacies of four iconic venues from Beijing 2008 - National Stadium (also known as Bird's Nest), National Aquatics Center (also known as Water Cube), Wukesong MasterCard Center and China National Convention Center (CNCC) - are all prime examples of how these concepts have already been in motion even before the inception of the Beijing 2022 bid.
Over the past seven years, these four venues have grown and developed into the "go-to" multi-purpose arenas for Beijing's biggest events, fulfilling the principles outlined in the International Olympic Committee's Agenda 2020 and setting a new standard of sustainability for the future of the Olympic movement.
The common thread between the post-2008 legacies for these four venues is thus:

Third, these venues have responded Beijing and China's growing interest in winter sports by hosting an increasing number of winter-sports related events.
General Manager Jerry Han of Wukesong MasterCard Center - which hosted all basketball events in 2008 - spoke of the "landmark" five-year contract signed by venue owners Bloomage International Investment Group and MasterCard.
Wukesong MasterCard Center recently celebrated its 10th anniversary on March 30, 2015 Clyde Drexler Rockets Jersey , and it looked back on its history of being the first 2008 Olympic venue to be rebranded commercially, with successful partnerships with the U.S. National Basketball Association (NBA), who assisted in hosting consistent NBA Global Games events.
"With supporting consultancy of (leading sport and entertainment presenter) AEG and the NBA, we have managed to turn this venue into one of the leading multi-function arenas in China for concerts, basketball Clint Capela Rockets Jersey , ice sports, conferences, and launch events with a capacity of 18,000," Han said.
Wukesong MasterCard Center hosted more than 70 large-scale events in 2013 Chris Paul Rockets Jersey , including concerts by top international acts including Beyonce and Elton John. China Basketball Association (CBA) champions the Beijing Ducks, led by former NBA star Stephon Marbury, also announced in May that they will be calling Wukesong MasterCard Center their home for the next CBA season.
