BERLIN-Germany's top ski jumper is confident the Beijing 2022 Olympic Games will have a positive effect on winter sports in China.

"Some might complain about running the Winter Games in a country that so far hasn't been known as a winter sports nation," said Karl Geiger. "But I see things positively. Winter sports popularity will hopefully increase in China."

Geiger is also an engineer in the field of energy and environmental technology, and the 28-year-old reckons China has done all it can to provide an eco-friendly range of competition venues.
