WARSAW, Dec. 17 (Xinhua) -- Polish Olympic Committee president Andrzej Krasnicki said that Poland "has done everything to ensure proper conditions for its athletes to attend the Winter Olympics in Beijing."

With 50 days before the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics, the Polish Olympic Committee organized a special press conference to talk about the logistics and preparations for Polish athletes to attend Beijing 2022.

"The Polish Olympic Committee has clearly divided tasks. Together with the Ministry of Sport and Tourism, we ensure that our athletes can have the best conditions," Krasnicki said, adding that the top priority is ensuring the safety of the athletes while the pandemic continues to spread worldwide.

"The Games are to be comfortable and safe for us. Our medical commission, the Central Sports Medicine Center, makes sure that the athletes leave the country healthy. We do everything to ensure that our athletes leave, participate in the event and return from the Olympic Games safely," Krasnicki added.

China's Ambassador to Poland, Sun Linjiang, conveyed his wishes in a video speech to those gathered at the conference.

"To offer a simple, safe and splendid Olympic Games is China's solemn promise to the world. The preparations for the Beijing Winter Olympics are progressing well," the ambassador said.

"International winter sports organizations highly value the facilities, sports teams, services and event organization. Thanks to the Olympic spirit and joint efforts of all parties, we are able to present a great Olympic Games to sports fans from all countries and regions, including Poland, and together we will promote the development of international sport," Sun added.

Poland's Minister of Sport and Tourism, Kamil Bortniczuk, said that "We wanted to prepare the Polish national team for the Winter Olympics in Beijing without any problems. I can say with all responsibility that in cooperation with sports associations, this goal has been achieved."

"This year, as the delayed Tokyo Olympics were held, we had a chance to draw conclusions, evaluate and redesign certain activities. I believe the next Olympics, both winter and summer, will be full of success. Of course, I keep my fingers crossed for all the athletes who will compete in Beijing," Bortniczuk concluded.
