The build-up to PyeongChang 2018 began in earnest on 9 February with the Countdown Ceremony staged at Gangneung Hockey Arena.
Much to the delight of all in the stadium, the IOC President Thomas Bach then shared a message of good luck and best wishes to PyeongChang via a short video message.
I wish the athletes all the very best as they prepare to make their Olympic dreams come true in PyeongChang next year. Thomas Bach IOC President - Thomas Bach IOC President
Wrapping up the One-Year-to-Go Countdown Ceremony, POCOG President Lee Hee-beom said: “What a fantastic celebration we had here tonight to mark one year to go. Thank you to all the performers who made tonight so special. The atmosphere was wonderful and this is a great way to show the world that we are ready to put on a great show in 12 months’ time.”
