Thank you letter
Dear Competition Volunteer Applicant:
Thank you for registering as a volunteer for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics. Thank you for your continued attention and support to the preparations!
At the beginning of 2020, the sudden new crown pneumonia epidemic swept the world, bringing huge impact and challenges to all aspects of the Beijing Winter Olympics.
Since the deadline for registration of volunteers for the Games on June 30, 2021, in accordance with the requirements of “simple, safe, and exciting”, combined with the many uncertain factors brought by the global new crown pneumonia epidemic, according to the Beijing Winter Olympic Games venues (facilities) ) For the epidemic prevention and control policy, we adjusted the position of volunteers for the competition.
After comprehensively considering the knowledge and skills of all applicants, volunteer service experience, and job service intentions and conducting preliminary screening, we adopted interviews, online tests and other methods. After multiple rounds of selection, we have basically determined the candidates to be recruited for the competition.
We are very sorry to inform you that due to the impact of the new crown pneumonia epidemic and the limitation of the number of volunteer service positions for the Games, we will not be able to provide you with volunteer service positions for the Games.
Although you have not become a volunteer for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics, every volunteer applicant is a champion of excellent Olympic spirit and volunteerism.
Let us move towards the future together!
I wish you good health and success in your work!
Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Winter Paralympics Organizing Committee
