The "Ice Time" public welfare experience activity was held in Chen Lu International Skating Center on Sunday. 

Different from ordinary ice skating or skiing experience activities, this event had a strong focus on the Olympic cultural atmosphere. More than 1,600 Winter Olympics badges with different themes and shapes were displayed on a 10-meter-long Olympic badge exhibition stand, as well as several torches and mascots from previous Olympic Games.

Barcelona vs. Bayern Munich - UEFA Champions League

Barcelona and Bayern Munich begin their respective quests for Champions League glory with a blockbuster Group E clash at Camp Nou on Tuesday night.

Barcelona have had additional prep time for the welcome of Bayern Munich and they have made a bright start to the season, picking up seven points from their three matches so far. 

Bayern are unlikely to romp to another 8-2 win at Camp Nou, but will be confident of claiming an early scalp in their hardest group stage game. The Bundesliga side have won five straight matches, which included a 4-1 thrashing of RB Leipzig on Saturday.

Barcelona possible starting lineup (4-3-3): Ter Stegen; Roberto, Araujo, Pique, Alba; Busquets, F. de Jong, Pedri; Depay, L. de Jong, Coutinho

Bayern Munich possible starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Pavard, Upamecano, Hernandez, Davies; Kimmich, Goretzka; Sane, Muller, Musiala; Lewandowski
