"The whole world will watch a wonderful game."

  Two different perceptions: one is fast, the other is graceful, and the two events, short track speed skating and figure skating, will share a piece of ice in the Beijing Winter Olympics. In order to create an ice surface where speed and beauty coexist in the Capital Gymnasium, Remy Boller, an ice-making expert specially appointed by BOCOG, and his colleagues from China set up a stage for athletes from all over the world to realize their dreams.

  The ice-making expert from France said in an interview that his story of becoming attached to ice-making began in 1992. At the Winter Olympics in Albertville, 16-year-old Bole set foot on the ice with an ice sweeper. "That was my first contact with ice making." Bole said. Since then, he has served many Winter Olympics and world championships and accumulated rich experience in the field of ice making.

  After completing the ice-making work of short track speed skating and figure skating in Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in 2018, Bole received an invitation from the Beijing Winter Olympics Organizing Committee and soon devoted himself to the work related to the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, taking charge of the ice-making work of the Capital Gymnasium. "In order to present a wonderful Winter Olympics, I have worked with the China team for nearly 4 years." He said.

  Talking about the biggest challenge at work, Bole said that the Capital Gymnasium undertakes two major events of Beijing Winter Olympics, namely short track speed skating and figure skating, which have completely different requirements on the ice surface. "This requires us to study carefully to ensure that the ice surface is perfect for both projects." He explained that, compared with the brittle ice preferred by short track speed skaters, the slightly softer ice is more conducive to the flower skaters’ jumping movements. If the short-track speed skater can skate very fast and the figure skater can jump high in the competition, it proves that the ice-making work is successful.

  Bole mentioned a detail. The ice-making team will debug the ice surface temperature several times in one day. "We will adjust the ice surface condition, replace the protective mat and debug the ice surface temperature every day, so that the ice surface can reach the optimal temperature every day. In order to achieve this goal, we work closely with Chinese engineers in charge of machinery and equipment to regulate the temperature, water temperature and refrigeration system temperature. "

  In Bole’s view, every ice making is unique. "The special feature of this job is to cooperate with different teams in different venues." He said that working in Beijing was a wonderful experience.

  Built in 1968, Capital Gymnasium is the first modern gymnasium built after the founding of New China, and the first artificial indoor ice rink in China was born here. "It feels really great to look at the changes that have taken place here bit by bit!" Bole said.

  Talking about the cooperation with the ice-making team of the Capital Gymnasium, Bole said frankly that this is very exciting. "In fact, all my colleagues have great enthusiasm for ice making." He introduced that everyone came together because of their love for ice sports. "This is a pleasant cooperation, and everyone is in step. When encountering problems, everyone will rush forward and actively solve them, which is very good. " Bole said.

  Bole said that the experience of working in the Capital Gymnasium made him full of confidence in this ice and the success of this Winter Olympics. On February 4th, the first figure skating competition was held in the Capital Gymnasium. On the 5th, China won the gold medal in the short track speed skating mixed team relay final, which was also the first gold medal produced in the stadium. "There is no doubt that the whole world will watch wonderful games on this ice." Bole said.

The football boy was rescued from a cave in Thailand and died on a British campus. The cause of death was announced.

The Beijing News (Reporter Xu Bangyin) Recently, according to foreign media reports, the forensic doctor in Leicestershire, England, announced the cause of death of Dom, the captain of Thailand’s "Cave Football Team". In February this year, the 17-year-old Thai football boy who studied in the UK died unfortunately. Today, the forensic doctor confirmed that Dom committed suicide.

Dom is the captain of Thailand’s "Wild Boar" football team. He was trapped in a cave in Thailand with his teammates and miraculously rescued after 18 days. On June 23, 2018, due to a sudden rainstorm, 12 players and 1 coach of the "Wild Boar" football team were trapped in a cave in Chiang Rai province, Thailand, and thousands of rescuers from all over the world were involved in search and rescue work. On July 10th of that year, Dom and 11 teammates and coaches were all rescued.

According to foreign media reports, when the search and rescue work went on the ninth day, divers found the trapped people of the "Wild Boar" football team. Dom, who was only 13 years old at that time, was the first to deliver the news to the outside world on behalf of the team.

It is widely known that the Thai football teenager was rescued after being trapped in a cave for 18 days. Twelve players were invited to Britain to watch the Premier League match. For children who have experienced the test of life and death, their life trajectory has changed. A teammate once said that Dom’s goal is to become a member of the Thai football team.

In 2022, Dom got a scholarship from a foundation in Thailand and got the opportunity to study in the UK. Last August, Dom went to Brookhouse College, a boarding school with a professional football college in Leicestershire, England, where Dom could continue his professional football training.

In February this year, an accident happened. Dom, who was in a coma in the dormitory, was found by his roommate and was rushed to the local hospital. After two days of rescue, Dom died unfortunately. After a preliminary investigation, Leicestershire police said that there were no suspicious signs of Dom’s death, but the specific cause of Dom’s death was not announced.

After more than half a year’s in-depth investigation, Catherine Mei Sen, a senior forensic doctor in Leicestershire, recently concluded that Dom committed suicide. Catherine Mei Sen said that the police found no evidence to prove that Dom’s death had third-party involvement or other suspicious circumstances. "Dom didn’t know much about the mental health service department before his death, and he didn’t know why he made such a choice."

Dom experienced a moment of life and death in 2018. Whether he was trapped in a cave or was taken out of the cave by rescuers in a coma, the situation was extremely dangerous. But when Dom’s life was back on track and there was a smooth road ahead, he chose to take his own life. Iain smith, president of Brookhouse College, issued a statement saying that all people are still immersed in grief over Dom’s death and will always miss Dom.
