Guaranteeing the training of national teams for the Olympic Games, BSU holds relevant personnel accountable for the work

The epidemic is an order, and to take prevention and control measures is our responsibility. Since the start of prevention and control of the pneumonia epidemic caused by COVID-19, the CPC Committee of BSU has strictly implemented the disposition made by the leadership group of the general bureau, regarding the victory of war against the epidemic as a major political task that must be addressed seriously at present. It is to hold relevant personnel accountable to ensure the training of national teams at here, making all-out efforts to win the two tough battles---prevention and control of the epidemic and making preparations for the Olympic Games.


Attaching importance to it and making work plans at an early stage

At a high political position, the CPC Committee of BSU made planning, mobilization and disposition for the two tasks of extreme importance--prevention and control of the epidemic and guaranteeing the preparations for the Olympic Games--ahead of time. As early as January 21, our university held a thematic meeting to discuss and dispose the task of prevention and control of the epidemic, giving top priority to the management of the training base of national teams. The CPC Committee specially made the Management Scheme for the Training Base of National Teams ,  Work Scheme for the Lockdown of the Training Base of National Teams in the Prevention and Control of the Pneumonia Epidemic Caused by COVID-19  while including it into the whole prevention and control system of the university to ensure its absolute safety.


Commanding at the frontline and focusing on physical isolation

The national training base and all national teams training there set up a leading office for the prevention and control of the epidemic. The secretary of the CPC Committee and president of BSU served as the director of the office, vice-president in charge of the guarantee section for national teams as the deputy director of the office, chief of the guarantee section for national teams as the executive director of the office. Four groups were under the said office: emergency response group, personnel investigation group, checking and supervision group and supply guarantee group. The office firmly complied with the request of “main responsible comrades should command at the frontline and set an example” put forward by the CPC Central Committee, and all the members of the leadership team of BSU insisted on working on the scene in charge of specific aspects, focusing on the key positions and links.


According to the demand of "prevention and control of the epidemic and guaranteeing the preparations for the Olympic Games”, BSU started to carry out closed management for the “two venues and two apartments” and all the personnel being trained or offering service in the training base of national teams. Our university instructed relevant departments to set up the hard guardrails in all relevant areas overnight, set up and put in place the routine investigation and reporting system to minimize the risk. At present, six teams being trained here including the national trampoline team and national rhythmic gymnastics team totaling 158 people and 84 people in supporting service are under closed management, and the operation is smooth.


Attention to the details in the protection of people in scientific prevention and control

Our university made corresponding quarantine plans for those belonging to the national team who either returned to China from contests abroad or returning to Beijing taking the means of public transport. The board and lodging and training of those in quarantine are arranged separately, and they cannot be trained or work as normal until they are approved by the General Administration of Sport of China and relevant units. The symptoms like having a fever or coughing are closely watched, and once they are spotted, the people with such symptoms will be isolated on the spot and reported to the higher level authorities immediately according to the plan. In addition, the CPC Committee of BSU took the lead to set up a quarantine observation place in Changping and began to use it on January 26, providing quarantine observation service for those preparing for the Olympic Games under the General Administration of Sport of China and the teachers and students returning to Beijing from other places. At present, 41 people preparing for the Olympic Games under the General Administration of Sport of China are put in quarantine at here. The education of management should be strengthened to urge relevant personnel to protect themselves. Our university conveyed the instructions of the General Administration of Sport of China about the prevention and control of the epidemic in time, strengthened the education and guidance in this regard, and made efforts to popularize the popular science about the epidemic, urge those being trained here and providing supporting service to raise their awareness and pay more attention to personal hygiene. The staff members of the university would purchase articles for daily use in a unified manner and collect the parcels of express delivery at the designated places and then disinfect them in a unified manner. Meanwhile, we provide psychology counseling for the athletes to make them cope with the epidemic and train with a healthy mindset.


Thoughtful service and strict requirements to guarantee the safety of the environment

Our university provided face masks for all faculty members and required them to wear them while on duty; provided disinfecting hand sanitizer for the rooms of the national teams, staff's dormitories and public toilets; increased the frequency for disinfecting the floors and articles in places like the athlete apartment, canteen and training venue; and we also required to open the window to guarantee ventilation regularly for the affiliated training venues, trying our best to ensure a healthy environment of the training base of national teams.

It is less than 6 months from the start of 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Faced with the pneumonia epidemic caused by COVID-19, BSU will make conserted efforts to overcome the difficulties and win the war against the epidemic to make contributions to the preparation of the national teams for the Olympic Games with the spirit of “Always Striving to Fulfill Our Mission”.
