Pyeongchang 2018 President Lee Hee-beom, has revealed that plans are underway to develop the Jeongseon Alpine Centre as a training facility for athletes all over the world after the next Winter Olympics have finished.
He told a press conference here that legacy plans were already in place for 10 of the 12 Pyeongchang venues, but that the future of the Jeongseon Alpine Centre, which will stage the downhill, super-G, and combined events was still being confirmed.
In June teleconference took place between representatives from South Korea, Japan and China, the three countries hosting the next three Games - Pyeongchang 2018, Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022.
The event proposed and coordinated by the International Olympic Committee.
A proposed face-to-face meeting scheduled here could not take place because Toyko 2020 President Yoshirō Mori was not able to attend Rio 2016.
Lee, however, spoke of the project in optimistic tones.
"I proposed to the IOC to have three teleconference meetings between the three Organising Committees for the Games being held in Asia,” he said.
"We cooperate with Beijing and we are thinking we are planning some kind of training facilities for the Beijing Winter Olympics - not only for Koreans but the rest of the world.
"I think it can be a big sign for our legacy plans if we can include the Jeongseon Alpine Centre."
Lee added that the test events sports on the schedule for Pyeongchang 2018 would begin in November.
Asked if he had learned anything from Sochi 2014, Lee responded: "Personally I didn’t go to the Sochi Games, but we have 100 staff members who have visited the Games and we are discussing what we have learned from them.
"We have many things to learn from Sochi, and also the Rio Games.
"We will review it about what we should learn and what we should not learn."
