Date : 23 Nov 2017

PyeongChang, Korea, November 22, 2017: With less than 80 days to go until the XXIII Olympic Winter Games, the IOC concluded its final Project Review in PyeongChang confident that a memorable experience awaits athletes and fans next February.

“Venues are complete, the Olympic Villages are being kitted out, the Olympic Torch Relay is generating excitement for the Games across the Republic of Korea, and I can attest to the convenience of the new KTX high-speed railway,” said IOC Coordination Commission Chair Gunilla Lindberg following the two-day review.

“These are just a few of the many ways that preparations are continuing to be delivered ahead of what I am confident will be a memorable event for athletes and fans alike."

In addition to the convenient venue clusters set against a backdrop of both mountains and sea – where they will be able to watch the world's best winter athletes compete on snow or ice – Olympic ticket holders will also be able to access the Olympic Park and Plaza, with their mix of cultural activities and exhibits.

Organising Committee President Lee Hee-beom added: "We are now only 79 days away from the start of the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 and we are ready to welcome the world.

"The snow is starting to fall here and we are doing all we can to increase the passion and excitement across the nation to encourage everyone to come and be part of this winter sports extravaganza.

“It will be the most wonderful showcase of sports and culture that Korea has ever seen, and we invite everyone to buy their tickets and join us in PyeongChang."
