  In the women's 5000-meter speed skating final on February 10, Dutch player Irene Schouten won the second gold medal at the Winter Olympics with a time of 6:43.51, breaking the Olympic record again.

  During the presentation of souvenirs, Schouten couldn't wait to hold up "Jin Dundun" from the tray and smiled at the camera.

  This picture is very similar to 6 days ago.

  "Being an Olympic champion has been my childhood dream, and no one can shake me!" said Irene Schouten.

age is never an issue

  In the second round of the women's curling round robin, the Canadian team defeated the South Korean team 12:7, ushering in the first victory of the Beijing Winter Olympics.

In this match, Canadian player Jennifer Jones made 15 hits with a success rate of 88%.

The 47-year-old veteran told the world with her performance that she is still young.

  As a Canadian curling legend, Jones led his team to an undefeated win at the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics.

16 years later, she stood on the Beijing Winter Olympics.

  "Age doesn't matter, I feel like I'm still young enough to continue doing curling, which I love," Jones said.

She said that she will try her best to play every game well and make persistent efforts.

Single-board double-board "two blooms"

  In the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, Czech star Ledecka signed up for the women's parallel giant slalom in snowboard and the women's super giant slalom in alpine skiing.

She played well and finally won two gold medals, thus becoming the first athlete to win in different categories of a single Winter Olympics.

  Born in 1995, Ledecka started snowboarding at the age of 5 and freestyle skiing at the age of 13. She has been skating both snowboards and skis since she was a child.

  Many people advised her that she should focus on one thing, which would make it easier to succeed, but Ledecka chose to go her own way.

"I know it's going to be challenging, but both projects are what I love in my heart."

  On the afternoon of the 8th, the women's parallel giant slalom in snowboard at the Beijing Winter Olympics ended.

In the women's super giant slalom in alpine skiing that followed, Ledecka placed fifth.

The "genius" player was not discouraged, "The snow conditions here are very good, I am very happy today."

Birthday wishes from the Winter Olympic Village

  Although it is the Winter Olympics, the warmth can be felt everywhere.

For example, in the Yanqing Winter Olympic Village, the staff prepared beautiful birthday cakes for the officials and athletes of the delegations.

  On the birthday of foreign friends, birthday cakes decorated with fresh fruits will be prepared in advance in the Winter Olympic Village, and the cakes will be packaged to meet the requirements of epidemic prevention.

This not only ensures the safety of epidemic prevention, but also sends warm birthday wishes to foreign friends who have come to China from thousands of miles on this cold winter day.

  The Olympic Games is a world-class sports event that demonstrates the spirit of "faster, higher, stronger and more united", and symbolizes world peace and friendship.

Such a warm-hearted move is also the embodiment of the Olympic spirit.
