At the ceremony, Beijing Sport University announced the appointment of Dr. Henry Cheng, Chairman of Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group, as the Honorary Board Member of Beijing Sport University and unveiled the logo for the “Cheng Kar-Shun Champion Development Foundation”. To realise the vision of the Foundation, incentives and gold medals were presented to Beijing Sport University students who ranked top eight at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games and the Beijing Winter Paralympic Games. Incentives were also presented to the staff from related faculties and scientific research teams of Beijing Sport University in recognition of their significant contributions to the Beijing Winter Olympic Games and Winter Paralympic Games.
