Representatives of the organizing committee for the Games are participating in a program that includes access to the daily operations of the event, visits to the various venues and seminars with host country officials and International Olympic Committee (IOC) leaders.

The mission takes note of the legacy and every element implemented in Beijing 2022 in order to prepare for an event that will engage youth audiences in the Olympic spirit and provide them with unprecedented digital experiences.

In this context, IOC President Thomas Bach spoke with the leader of the South Korean delegation, Sports Minister Shin Chang-jae, and discussed the organizational calendar for Gangwon 2024.

Shin reaffirmed Seoul’s commitment to present a sporting event that brings peace to the Korean peninsula, as was the case with PyeongChang 2018, to promote Olympic values and to develop cultural and educational activities for the new generations.

The Gangwon Winter Youth Games are scheduled to be held from January 19 to February 1, 2024 with the attendance of at least 1,900 athletes.

This will be the fourth edition of these elite competitions after their versions in Innsbruck 2012, Lillehammer 2016 and Lausanne 2020.

The event involves young people from all over the world between 15 and 18 years of age under the premise of protecting athletes, working on performance and helping them outside the sport.

Its program is based primarily on that of the senior Olympic Games, but also seeks to explore other cultures and develop the skills to make them ambassadors of their discipline.
