CAIRO, Dec. 16 (Xinhua) -- The Egyptian Olympic Committee (EOC) on Thursday voiced its strong support for China for hosting the 2022 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.
"Together for the future, we wish great success for China," the EOC wrote on its official Facebook page, sharing a promotional video of the Beijing Winter Olympics.
The Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics will take place between February 4 and 20, followed by the Winter Paralympics from March 4 to 13.
With warm weather all year round, Egypt currently has no federation for winter sports. However, Sherif El-Erian, Secretary-General of the Egyptian Olympic Committee, told Xinhua that Egyptian sports officials are working on having a winter sports federation and national teams for the Winter Olympics.
"It will take time and effort, but someone has to start. If no one starts, we will never get there. Every sport has started from scratch," El-Erian added. Enditem
