ULAN BATOR, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- A specialist of the Mongolian National Olympic Committee (MNOC) on Monday expressed confidence that China will successfully host the upcoming 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

"First of all, I would like to thank the Chinese people for hosting the Winter Olympics at a time when the world is on its knees in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. I have no doubt that China will successfully host the Olympic Games because the country knows better than anyone how to fight the pandemic and how to follow the infection control regime," Battogtokh Usukhbayar, education specialist of the MNOC, told Xinhua in an interview.

"In addition, China has the experiences of successfully organizing major continental and world-class events, so we are confident that the Beijing Winter Olympics will be a great success and at the high level," said Usukhbayar.

Two cross-country skiers of Mongolia will participate in the 2022 Olympic Winter Games, and under the guidance of a Swiss coach, they have trained for the Beijing Winter Olympics in European countries where skiing is highly developed, the specialist said.

He said that the Mongolian skiers will strive to improve their personal records and achieve the country's best result at the Winter Games in Beijing.

Mongolia and China have been friendly neighbors for many years, Usukhbayar said, adding that during the Olympic Games, leaders of the MNOC are expected to meet relevant high-ranking officials of China to discuss future cooperation.
