‘Figure Queen’ Yuna Kim will take off for the final jump for the Pyeongchang bid.

 
Kim left for Togo to help Pyeongchang in the bid for the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Kim left with Cho Yang-Ho, the chairman of the Pyeongchang bid committee and other team members on a private plane of Korean Air at Kimpo Airport on June 27.
 

“I do feel the pressure but I believe that the results will be good since we’ve done a pretty good job up until now,” said Kim in her interview with the press before departing. 
 
Kim’s original plan was to go directly to the 123rd International Olympic Committee (IOC) session that will be held in Durban, South Africa. 
However she changed her plans to participate in the bidding cities presentation that will be held at the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA) general assembly at Lome, Togo on June 28.
 
This presentation is the last opportunity before the IOC session that will be held in Durban on July 6. 
Kim will be presenting along with Cho Yang-Ho and Park Yong-Sung, the president of the Korean Olympic Committee. 
 
Kim’s presentation will not be drastically different from her presentation that she gave in Lausanne, Switzerland last month.
 
“I practiced my presentation for about 1~2 weeks. I’m a little less nervous since I’ve already presented in Lausanne. My presentation is shorter than the one that I did there. 
I will talk about how I nurtured my dream of the winter Olympics as a child and the effect that the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics will have on young athletes,” said Kim. 
 
“In Rosanne, I noticed that the IOC officials had positive things to say about Pyeongchang, Munich, and Annecy. So I don’t know what they really think,” said Kim as she laughed.
“I think we are headed in a good direction. But we won’t be able to know until the results are actually out so we will have to try our best until the very end,” said Kim.
 
After the ANOCA assembly the team will fly to Monaco on July 1 and attended the wedding of Prince Albert who is an IOC official. 
 
They will join the rest of the Pyeongchang team members (who will leave from Inchon International Airport on July 1) in Durban on July 2. 
The winning city for the 2018 Winter Olympics will be announced on July 6, midnight.
