January 16 - A special "Champions of Tomorrow" lecture organised by International Sport Cooperation Centre of Korea (ISC) is to be held at the Alpensia Resort in Pyeongchang in order to give youngsters from Southeast Asian, Middle Eastern and African countries a better understanding of the Winter Games.
The lecture, due to take place Sunday (January 19), will be part of Pyeongchang's "Dream Programme", a major legacy promise in the city's successful bid for the 2018 Winter Olympic and Paralympics Games.
This Programme has given young people from across less traditional winter sports countries the opportunity to experience these sports, giving them a taste of things to come ahead of Pyeongchang 2018.
The lecture will give the participants a better understanding of the Olympic Winter Games, values of sport and the quality of a true champion through five group activities including a Champions' Torch Relay; Express Winter Sports through your Body; Fair Play versus Unfair Play; We are the Champions; and the Champion's Oath ceremony.
The ISC, host of the lecture, has been contributing to the Dream Programme through various endeavours including the development of the educational program for the Korean national team and the hosting of International Sport Cooperation Conferences on multiple occasions.
ISC President Yong-Soon Kim claimed the lecture will be an unforgettable experience for the young participants of the program and also help them to pursue their dreams for the future.
