China, which hosted in Beijing the Summer Olympics-2008, is planning to bid for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. Capital of the next Olympic games can be Harbin, where the Winter World Student Games will be held in February.

"If the holding of World Student Games 2009 finds a positive response in the world, it will increase our determination to struggle for the Winter Olympics-2018," the governor of Heilongjiang province Li Zhangsu said.

Harbin with a population of five million people is to withstand competition for Games-2018 with German Munich, which has already announced its pretensions, and a candidate of France Ц Nice or Grenoble.
