The successful holding of the Beijing Winter Paralympic Games demonstrated that China has fulfilled its promise of making the Olympics and Paralympics equally spectacular, said Cai Qi, president of the Organizing Committee of the Beijing Winter Olympics and Paralympics, on Sunday.

Speaking at a news conference, Cai recalled some of the impressive details of the Paralympic Games, including the opening ceremony which blends sports with performance, the actors "singing" the national anthem in sign language and the athletes embedding the torch in the main torch stand.

"All of these moments have moved us and conveyed confidence, love and hope to the world," he said.

Cai noted that aside from the Games, the organizing committee also carried out a variety of activities to promote Chinese culture.

For the first time, the Beijing Winter Paralympic Games were broadcast in full 4K Ultra HD format with 360-degree playback, providing an immersive viewing experience for audiences around the world, Cai said.

"We have strengthened our cooperation with media outlets all around the world and jointly carried out news coverage of every step of the Games, leaving the world with wonderful moments."

The Beijing Winter Paralympic Games will officially come to an end on Sunday night. The Games feature 78 gold medals, with nearly 600 athletes from 46 countries and regions competing.

The Chinese delegation participated in all the major events and ranked No. 1 in the gold medal and total medal lists, a historic high for the delegation.
