Beijing Trip

I arrived home last night from a 3-day trip to Beijing. The PyeongChang2014 Olympic Bid Committee had had invited myself and two athletes who had participated in the Dream Program to be present at a press meeting in Beijing on 26 April.

The press meeting was a lunch event, where the press was introduced to the Dream Program, some participants of the Dream Program, as well as top Korean athletes like speed skaters Chun Lee-Kyung and Ahn Hyun-Soo. Here's the report from PyeongChang 2014 website.

Chinese pair skaters Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo were also present. They were appointed honorary ambassadors for the PyeongChang2014 Olympic Bid Committee in a special ceremony. Here's a report from PyeongChang 2014 website and a report on KBS Global.

Apparently, Shen & Zhao also announced they would get married after the Beijing Olympics!

It is truly an honor to be invited to this event, and also to be seated at the same table as Gangwon Province Governor Kim Jin-Sun, Chairman of PyeongChang Bid Committee Han Seung-Soo, and newly-appointed honorary ambassadors Shen and Zhao.
