South Korea to host 2018 Winter Olympics

7 Jul

Korean figure skater Kim Yu Na, Olympic Gold Medallist

Just walked into work and was greeted with the news that South Korea have won the bid to host the 2018 Winter Olympics.  Both my boss and Korean co-worker seem DELIGHTED by the news. They will take place in the city of Pyeongchang in central Korea, a city I actually visited over winter on a ski trip.

One thing Korea always has plenty of is snow and cold weather so at least that won’t be a problem like it was in Vancouver! This is a great win for South Korea and will surely be good news for English schools here as many people will want to improve their English coming up to the games.

It is also incredible news for the Korean economy as, according to Yonhap News, the economic impact of South Korea’s hosting the 2018 Winter Olympics is expected to top 20 trillion won  with 230,000 more jobs to be created!!!

Sadly I have no idea where I will be in 7 years time, but a trip back to South Korea may be in order!

GO KOREA!!!
