“Following the PyeongChang Olympics, the success of the Youth Olympics provides an opportunity to leap forward as a global city.”
The stadium seeks ways to utilize the service through services with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
Suggestion of continued need for national operation
With the successful completion of the 2024 Gangwon Winter Youth Olympic Games (Gangwon 2024),
Gangwon Province has begun preparing measures to continue the legacy of the Winter Olympics and utilize the stadium. 스포츠토토
Gangwon Province Governor Kim Jin-tae emphasized on the 1st,
“Following the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, we have successfully held the 2024 Gangwon Winter Youth Olympics,
providing an opportunity to leap forward as a cultural special self-governing province in name and reality and a global city.”
He also said, “It is very meaningful to host the Youth Olympic Games for the first time in Asia,” and added,
“Two of our country’s three Olympic Games were held in Gangwon-do.”
The province plans to use the stadium where this competition was held to expand the base of winter sports.
After the competition ended, it was decided to restore the stadium to its original state, including removing temporary facilities,
to host domestic and international competitions for each sport,
and to use it as a training facility for the national team and Gangwon-do representatives.
To this end, the province signed an agreement on the 24th of last month to establish an Asian branch of the International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation in Pyeongchang to continue hosting the World Cup and Asian Cup competitions.
The facility where the Gangwon 2024 Games were held will also be used as a stadium for the 105th National Winter Sports Games scheduled for the 22nd to 25th.
The province plans to continue its efforts to inherit the winter sports legacy from the Pyeongchang Olympics.
We decided to operate the ‘Pyeongchang Winter Olympic and Paralympic Memorial Hall’ in a more substantial manner,
which has an exhibition space where you can see the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics,
a winter sports VR experience, and collects and preserves historical materials related to the Olympics.
About 53,400 people visited this place last year.
The province continues to support programs that help youth around the world develop their dreams of competing in the Olympic Games.
Among the participants of the ‘Dream Program’, which allows teenagers in countries without snow to experience winter sports,
14 participated in this competition and won medals.
In addition, we plan to provide children and teenagers with the opportunity to experience various winter sports through the ‘Soohorang Bandabi Sports Camp‘.
Regarding the issue of stadium utilization, we are currently working with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
In addition, we plan to continue to request national funding to maintain the country’s only winter sports facilities,
such as the sliding center and ski jump, and to suggest the need for them to be operated by the state.
Gangwon 2024 was held at a total of nine stadiums, including five facilities owned by the province,
including a hockey center, speed skating, sliding center, ski jumping, and biathlon center,
Gangneung City’s ice arena and curling center, and two privately owned facilities.
Governor Kim Jin-tae said, “The Winter Olympics stadium is a facility centered on professional athletes,
so the target audience is limited and it is difficult to utilize it.” 카지노사이트 백링크
“We will continue,” he emphasized.
