‘Figure Queen’ Yuna Kim appealed for PyeongChang to host the 2018 Winter Olympics through a video presentation. 

Kim has put her schedule as an ambassador for PyeongChang on a hold to concentrate on the World Figure Skating Championships. 
 
The PyeongChang 2018 Bid Committee delivered Kim’s video message on April 7 at the Sport Accord International Convention in London, Great Britain. 
The video was 3 minutes and 45 seconds long and spoke about why PyeongChang should be selected for the 2018 Winter Oympics.
 
The Sport Accord International Convention is an important sports event in which a large number of sports federations and organizations gather. 
It is owned by SportAccord (the former General Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF)), Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF),
and  Association of International Olympic Winter Sports Federations (AIOWF). 

Many sports federations hold their annual meetings at the convention, including the International Olympic Committee (IOC). 
During the convention, each candidate city bidding for the 2018 Winter Olympics gave a 20 minute presentation. 
The official presentations were in the order of Munich(Germany), Annecy(France), and PyeongChang(Korea).
 
Kim was scheduled to attend the event but had to decline after the Tokyo World Figure Skating Championships, that were to be held on March 25, were rescheduled to Moscow,
April 24 due to the Tohoku earthquake. 

Even though Kim could not make it to the convention she delivered her message via video to the IOC and sports officials at the event.  
“I was able to become an Olympic champion with the help of the Korean government’s winter sports athlete promotion program ‘Drive the Dream.’ 
If PyeongChang had not challenged itself for the Olympics, I may have not have had the chance to have challenged myself to become an Olympic champion. 
By holding the 2018 Winter Olympics games in PyeongChang it will fulfill the dreams of young Asian athlete’s dream of the Olympics and Paralympics,” said Kim in her video message.

The 3 minutes and 45 seconds presentation video was composed of Kim’s English speech that was 1minute 45 seconds long 
and the remaining 2 minutes were clips of Kim rising as the champion of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.  
 
Kim will attend the (IOC) technical briefing that will be held in Lausanne, Switzerland on May 18-19 to help PyeongChang bid for the 2018 Winter Olympics. 
The winning city will be decided by votes of the IOC officials at the 2011 IOC Session that will be held in Durban, South Africa on July 6. 
The technical briefing in May is the final official event before the bidding election.

PyeongChang’s sport ambassador and Olympic figure skating champion Yu-Na Kim was unable to attend as she prepares for the rescheduled figure skating World Championships in Moscow, but she was featured in a video that was used to explain the venue plan.
In the video, Kim said she wouldn’t have become a champion without the previous two PyeongChang bids that generated a winter sports training program allowing her to develop her skills.
