Yuna Kim will join in on the final pitch to help Pyeongchang in the bid for the 2018 Winter Olympics.

 

Changes in plans were made. Before Kim goes to Durban, South Africa, she will fly to Togo.
Kim will participate in the Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (ANOCA) general assembly that will be held in the capital city of Lomé on June 27-28.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) officials of Africa will be present at this assembly.

 

ANOCA has allowed the three cities bidding for the 2018 Winter Olympics, Pyeongchang; Munich, Germany; and Annecy, France, to each give a 15 minute presentation. The ANOCA assembly is the last international event before the IOC session (where the winning city for the 2018 will be announced). Kim participated in the ‘Technical Briefing’ session that was held in Lausanne, Switzerland on May 18 and attracted attention. There were favorable reviews that Kim’s presence changed the atmosphere surrounding Pyeongchang. The bidding committee hopes to continue this mood in Africa as well.

 

It was not an easy decision to make. To enter Togo Kim will have to receive three vaccines including Yellow fever. It was unclear if she could make it to the ANOCA assembly because of her conflicting schedules. However Kim was determined to help the Pyeongchang bid. She canceled all her schedules and decided to join the team.

 

“She is very enthusiastic. As a member of bidding committee we can’t thank her enough,” said Ha Do-Bong, secretary general of the Pyeongchang bidding committee, as he smiled.
“Yuna is determined to help out as much as she can till the final moment. We canceled all her schedules and decided to go,” said All That Sports (ATS), Kim’s management.


After the ANOCA assembly, Kim will fly to South Africa. The host of the 2018 Winter Olympics will be decided at the IOC session that will be held in Durban, South Africa on July 6. Kim will also participate in the final presentation to appeal for Pyeongchang before the voting begins.

 

Kim will be skating her free skating for the 2010-2011 season, ‘Homage to Korea’, for the first time in Korea in August. ‘All That Skate Summer 2011’ will be held on a specially prepared ice rink at the Seoul Olympic Park Gymnastic Stadium on August 13-15. “This year is the 66th anniversary of Independence Day (August 15). It is meaningful that she has the opportunity to skate ‘Homage to Korea’,” said ATS. The winning couple of the SBS TV’s ‘Kim Yuna’s Kiss & Cry’ will also make a special appearance at the show.
