“Our Executive Board meetings were a good opportunity to get more familiar with PyeongChang and, most of all, to visit the Olympic Village together with some athletes, who shared their experience”, Bach said.

“I also had the opportunity to meet the acting President and the Speaker of the National Assembly here in Korea. In both meetings, it was made clear that, despite the political divisions that the country is facing now, there is a very solid and good support for PyeongChang 2018. This is really encouraging”, Bach added.
