Description

The IOC offers the following Video News Release to all news agencies, broadcasters and online news platforms free of charge.

IOC President Thomas Bach has arrived in the Republic of Korea ahead of the Olympic Winter Games, PyeongChang 2018.

 

President Bach said, “the world is looking at Korea” as he stepped off a newly built KTX high-speed railway train at Jinbu station in PyeongChang.

 

One hundred and two gold medals will be up for grabs over 17 days of winter sport between February 9-25th 2018.

 

PyeongChang 2018 will also continue the IOC’s commitment to bridge gender divides in sport. For the first time in PyeongChang, a mixed doubles event in curling will appear alongside the traditional men’s and women’s team events. Alpine skiing, traditionally an individual sport, will also have its own mixed team event for the first time. And finally, the speed skating programme in PyeongChang will be rounded off with men’s and women’s ‘mass start’ events.
