According to Xinhua News Agency, “Snowflake, snowflake, open in the sun.Both at home and far away are equally open…”February 4, start of Spring.At about 22:00, in the center of the National Stadium “Bird’s Nest”, a group of children rushed onto the stage with “peace doves” in their hands, singing and frolics.At the same time, the giant snowflake that once appeared beneath the Olympic rings once again took center stage.The foreshadowing was buried half an hour ago.After the athletes’ entrance, 91 girls returned to the stage with snowflake guides in their arms, forming a giant snowflake in the outline of olive branches.The snowflake dances in space, gently brushing the surface of the Earth before returning to center stage.At the time, no one knew that this would be the first time in history that the torch would be composed of the names of all the participating countries and regions.The song faded and the lights dimmed.Zhao Weichang, who was born in 1950 and carried the torch in the corner of the Bird’s Nest stadium, carried the flag at the opening ceremony of the Chinese delegation’s first Winter Olympics 42 years ago.Flames flicker in the cold wind, burning the sound of lake Placid in 1980.Next up, Li Yan, born in 1966, is a legendary short track speed skating coach who has coached seven gold MEDALS in three Winter Olympics.Then hand over, Yang Yang.At the age of 26, she won her first Olympic podium for China in Salt Lake City in 2002.The torch continues to pass, from Su Bingtian, the “Asian flying man” and “post-80s”, to Zhou Yang, the “post-90s” short-track speed skating champion of the Winter Olympics…Finally, Dinegar Iramujiang and Zhao Jiawen, two winter athletes born in 2001, took the torch and walked slowly to the giant snowflake in the center of the stage.The bird’s Nest was silent, and the world held its breath in anticipation — that moment was coming.Two torchbearers glided onto the stage and inserted the final stick directly into the middle of the snowflake.There is no unconstrained ignition method, there is no intense burning of heheheyan.Of June.There was silence.No one expected the ribbon-shaped red hand-held torch, “Flying”, to blend in with the main flame.Singing again, surrounded by children, the giant snowflake carrying the Olympic fire floated into the bird’s Nest.This moment is the glory of the Olympics, but also a flash of the ancient city of thousands of years, is the century-old Olympic history “unprecedented”.Zhang Yimou, chief director of the opening and closing ceremonies, had already guessed the audience’s reaction: “Some of the audience may not be used to it, but if we don’t make such innovations and changes, future generations will.”The Olympic flame symbolizes mankind’s expectation of peace, friendship and light, but the torch burning for more than a month at every Olympic and Paralympic Games in the past consumes a lot of fuel.In the context of climate change and global warming, “low-carbon environmental protection” concerns the future of all mankind.From the previous lighting to “non-lighting”, the concept of low-carbon and environmental protection was clearly conveyed, while the snowflakes gathered by the names of all participating countries and regions reflected the great concept of building a community with a shared future for mankind.Zhang yimou said that there is no moment when human solidarity is more needed than today.Tonight, a snowflake illuminates the “Double Olympic City” Beijing, will also illuminate the green future of all mankind.Xinhua News Agency reporters Gao Meng, Ma Sijia
