It was decided to omit the opening and closing ceremonies as they were held in five cities.
Instead, the Korea Sports Council plans to hold a separate general awards ceremony on a small scale after the event.
On the other hand, two events, speed skating (January 27-29, Taereung International Skating Rink) and biathlon (January 28-31, university, general division), all schedules were completed with pre-games.
Curling starts the photo game on the 11th and runs the main game until the 20th.
This year’s event is the first winter sports event to be held in a situation where the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19) epidemic has subsided since 2020, and unlike last year, it will be held with a related audience.
The 2021 competition could not be held due to the spread of Corona 19, and last year’s competition was digested without spectators.
Star athletes representing Korea’s winter sports, such as Hwang Dae-heon (short track), Cha Jun-hwan (figure skater), and Jeong Dong-hyeon (alpine ski), will participate and compete.
