Olympic Winter Games

The XXIII Olympic Winter Games are taking place between February 9th to the 25th, 2018 in PyeongChang, Republic of Korea. This edition of the Winter Olympics includes four new events: speed skating mass start, curling mixed doubles, alpine skiing team event and snowboarding big air. This guarantees that, for the first time since the Winter Olympics began in 1924, more than 100 gold medals are up for grabs.

The Olympic events will take place in two venue clusters.

1. PyeongChang Mountain Cluster (snow and sled sports)
2. Gangneung Coastal Cluster (indoor ice sports)

There are a total of twelve competition venues within these two clusters, six of which have been newly constructed and six updated from existing facilities. The longest travel time between any two Olympic venues will be approximately one hour by car.

The stadiums in the PyeongChang Mountain Cluster are spread over three sports parks in the mountains: Alpensia Sports Park, Phoenix Snow Park and Jeongseon Alpine Centre.

The stadiums in the Gangneung Coastal Cluster are all in the same area. From the centrally located Alpensia Sports Park in the mountains, it takes approximately 30 minutes to reach the other Olympic locations.

Team Canada

Team Canada

The Canadian Olympic Team was officially formed for the first time at the 1904 Games in St. Louis and has won at least one medal at every Games it has ever competed in. Team Canada was the host of the 1976 Games in Montreal, the 1988 Games in Calgary, and the 2010 Games in Vancouver. They have become a leader in the Olympic movement both on and off the field of play.

At Vancouver 2010, Team Canada led the gold medal count with unprecedented success for any country at an Olympic Winter Games. Having mirrored this success at Sochi in 2014, Team Canada is hoping to build on this momentum at PyeongChang 2018.

This podium success is delivered by the strength of Canadian athletes and coaches, a best-in-class National Olympic Committee, and the support of Canadian Olympic fans across the globe.
