高中英语演讲稿：scene to look forward
There was an elder who traveled all around the world to introduce China for bidding Olympic games. That special hard experience had rooted in his mind. After hearing the good news that China succeeded in the bid for hosting the 29th Olympic Games, he was so excited that he could not stop shedding tears, saying I had been waiting for the day since 1993, the happiest thing finally happened to China. The man is Mr. HeZhenliang, who has devoted his rest life to Chinese Olympic Games. It is with his spirit, passion, courage and strong sense of patriotism to China that we are taking our next step into the world.
Ladies and gentlemen, now I have a question for all of you who are sitting here. Do you still remember that memorable scene? Yes or no? Please put out your hands, let me see how many? Wow, a lot of people. The unforgettable moment is still lingering in your mind clearly.
At 10:08 P.M. on July 13th, 2020, Mr. Samaranch, the former President of the International Olympic Committee, announced in Moscow that the sponsoring city of the 29th Olympiad will be the city of Beijing. Just at the same time in China, the excitement rippled through the Olympic conference room into Beijing, into the city and into the whole nation. The Chinese, abroad or at home, celebrated the successful great moment in various ways, like hugging each other, jumping, yelling, crying, drinking, singing, dancing and parading on the streets in the midnight. Modern China, a product of 5000 years of civilization and history, with her spirit of hard work and perseverance, finally shook hands with the Olympic games, fulfilling the long expected dream.
Now many Chinese are trying their best to do what they can do for the upcoming games. They learn English to communicate with foreigners. They get rid of bad habits to protect environments. They are eager to be volunteers to serve the Olympic Games. They introduce great Chinese tradition, culture and civilization to the world people. They apply for the torchbearers to carry on the message share the peace, share the Olympics.
At the moment when one-year countdown has marked, our Chinese people are getting ready for this big event. The Beijing Olympic committee organization is keeping the promise made in the bid. Under the guidance of the concept of the green Olympic, the tech-Olympic and the peoples Olympic, the 29th Olympic games will strengthen the communication, enhance the cooperation, and shorten the distance between China and the world.
Once again, I want to emphasize one point national participation. Like us, a common citizen, we strongly realize the responsibility of our own: planting more trees to cover the space, driving less to relieve the traffic jam, making full use of energy to reduce the pollution and so on. All these actions will not only improve our living environments, but also benefit our coming generation.
Next year in August 8th, Beijing will witness the worlds greatest sporting event, will bring Olympic values to one-fifth of the worlds population, will be one of the most exciting projects in Olympic history. Beijing, a main attraction to tourists, will stretch hands to give the world people a warm welcome, and all the guests will be impressed deeply by Chinas state-of-the-art venues, comfortable city environments, enthusiastic volunteers and overwhelming public interest.
