Date : 28 Jun 2017

PyeongChang, Korea, June 27, 2017: A rising star in the world of golf – Lee Bo-Mee – has become the latest Ambassador for the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics. Hailing from Suwon, South Korea, Lee, 28, turned professional in 2008 on the Korean LPGA – but it is on the Japan Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour where she has made her mark after a remarkable seven wins in his first season in 2015.

She broke the all-time record of earnings made by a male or female golfer in Japan that year and was awarded Player of the Year in both 2015 and 2016. She speaks fluent Japanese and is regularly seen on the front of popular magazines or appearing on game shows and chat shows in Japan.

She said: “Korea is where my sporting career began, so I am very excited to be supporting the Olympic and Paralympic Games in PyeongChang and to have the chance to witness other Korean athletes performing in front of home fans.

“I have been fortunate enough to build an incredible career in Japan and I’m thrilled to be representing PyeongChang 2018 not only in Korea but also throughout the world.”
