The National Indoor Stadium, a venue for the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, has been transformed into a winter sports venue after two years of renovation.
Two standard ice hockey rinks have been added to the venue.
One is used in the main arena for competition, and the other is used for pre-game warm-ups.
