www.olympic.orglong distances to Venues, only two Clusters, thePyeongChang Cluster and the Gangneung Cluster, will beconstructed. These two Clusters will include athleteaccommodation and will be conveniently located within amaximum of 30 minutes to all Competition Venues. This isthe most compact allocation of Competition Venues in thehistory of the Olympic Winter Games, and is just one of themany ways we are putting the needs of athletes first. ThePyeongChang Cluster and the Gangneung Cluster will belocated a short distance from each other, only 37 kilometres apart, and will be linked to a three-tiertransportation network consisting of an expressway, nationaland local roads, and soon-to-be-built double-track railroads. And as part of our drive to host a UbiquitousGames for the first time in history, all athletes will beprovided with digital handheld devices through which theycan access Olympic-related information anytime andanywhere. In addition, in full realisation of the important rolethat family members play in the lives of athletes, we willensure that the needs of athletes' family members are metin all areas, giving the athletes peace-of-mind.NEW HUB OF WINTER SPORTS IN ASIAOne of the aspirations of the local residents of PyeongChangis to transform their City into a hub of winter sports in Asia.The City is in an excellent position to see this aspirationbecome a reality, as it is already considered one of Korea'sbest ski areas, attracting a multitude of tourists every winter. Inline with this, the Korean Government has launched its plan to develop PyeongChang and the surrounding area into aWinter Sports Belt with the construction of the SecondYeongdong Expressway and the Wonju-Gangneung railroad. Inaddition, the Gangwon Provincial Government has alreadyinvested USD 1.3 billion in the construction of Alpensia resort,to be completed by 2008. Certainly, should PyeongChang be chosen as Host City of the Games, the honour would bring the area even closer to realising its goal of becoming awinter sports hub of Asia.SPREAD OF WINTER SPORTS IN ASIAWinter sports have been continuously developed centeringon Europe and North America. In particular, except for theOlympic Winter Games held twice in Japan out of those held 20 times so far, all were held in Europe and NorthAmerica alone. However Asia, which is home to four billionpeople, has vast potentials for winter sports with greaterattention towards the events every year.PyeongChang, emerging as the hub of winter sports inAsia, is ready to host the 2014 Olympic Winter Games,spreading winter sports in Asia and fostering thecorresponding industry, thereby serving as a torch of newopportunities to spread the Olympism to those around the world. ?OLYMPIC REVIEW57

58OLYMPIC REVIEWOLYMPIC GAMES FOR THENEXT GENERATIONIn PyeongChang's Bid for the 2010 Olympic andParalympic Winter Games, we proposed a specialprogramme for youth around the world, the DreamProgramme. This Programme has been carried outsince 2004, with approximately 100 youths fromparts of the world without access to winter sportsinvited to PyeongChang to experience the thrill ofwinter sports. We will continue on with thisProgramme, expanding its scope and scale. We willalso have the new plan to host the World YouthWinter Games to be participated by young peopleacross the globe every four years from 2015 as away to more expansively spread the OlympicMovement to the next generation.OLYMPISM BASED ON PEACEAND HARMONYPyeongChang is located in Gangwon Province, theonly province in the world that remains dividedbetween two countries: a part of the province lies inSouth Korea, another part in North Korea. What aninspiration to the world, and what momentum for thespreading of Olympism and the Olympic Movementwould be achieved in PyeongChang - where thebeauty of peace among nations espoused by theGames will overshadow this tragic division. Indeed, this would be a historic moment thatwould leave a lasting and deep impression on allpeople, sending a message of hope that peace onearth is attainable, even in what seems likeinsurmountable circumstances. North-Southcooperation was realised in past Olympic Games,and PyeongChang will do everything it can to keepthis cooperation alive in the true Spirit of the Olympic Games.MOTIVATION FOR SELECTINGKEY INFRASTRUCTUREALL WITHIN 30 MINUTESIn selecting key infrastructure for the Games, our main priority was to ensure that athletes are ableto maintain optimal condition. With that in mind, we set out to create two Clusters - the PyeongChangCluster and the Gangneung Cluster - located within 30 minutes of each other. All facilities within the two Clusters will be denselylocated and the Clusters themselves will beconveniently connected via an expressway, nationalroads and a railroad.The PyeongChang Cluster, located in amountainous region, will be the main Cluster of theGames. It will house Alpensia Resort, the proposedmain site of the PyeongChang Games, most of the Snow Venues, the IOC Hotels, the main OlympicVillage, the IBC/MPC and the Main Media Village. It will also be the site of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. The Gangneung Cluster willhouse all the Ice Rinks and an additional OlympicVillage and Media Village, and will be located only 37 kilometres from PyeongChang. This All Within30 Minutes concept will make the PyeongChangGames the most compact and athlete-friendly Games in history. ?RightA map showing theproposedlocations of the venues in2014 OlympicWinter GamesCandidate CityPyeongChang2014CANDIDATECITY
