The flame of the Spartakiad was lit by Yang Qian, the owner of the first "gold" of the Summer Games in Tokyo. She set an Olympic record in air rifle shooting.

A patriotic artistic performance was shown at the opening ceremony. The three-part show focused on national unity, the founding spirit of the Chinese Communist Party, and the Chinese dream. For athletes participating in the Spartakiad, the main dream, of course, is to win the competition.

Most of the events are held in Shaanxi province, but cycling, fencing, breakdancing, surfing, canoe slalom, and sailing competitions take place in other regions of the country. The organizing committee of the All-China Spartakiad said that a record number of doping tests and various tests for coronavirus will be made at the competition.
