PyeongChang 2018 Promises “New Horizons”

PyeongChang 2018 said in their presentation at the Association of National Olympic Committee’s (ANOC) General Assembly in Acapulco, Mexico Thursday that PyeongChang’s vision for the 2018 Winter Games will help stimulate a new market for winter sports in Asia, and that a Winter Games in PyeongChang can serve to spread the positive message of Olympism and the values of the Olympic Movement to a new, young and dynamic generation across the region.

The PyeongChang 2018 delegation explained how their vision is brought alive through the overall campaign message of “New Horizons” and how this concept will help the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and International Federations expand winter sports to new areas of the world.

PyeongChang 2018 announced some of the new programs they would introduce ahead of the 2018 Games to assist NOCcs with their preparation, including free training camps for athletes from countries without sufficient winter sports training facilities, and offering all NOCs a space for an NOC House with “no minimum stay requirement” in any of the PyeongChang 2018 Villages.
