Construction begins on PyeongChang 2018 ice venues
A groundbreaking ceremony has been held to launch the construction of the PyeongChang 2018 ice venues. The event, which was held on the site of the new venues at the Gangneung Sports Complex, was attended by nearly 1,000 people, including key officials and representatives of Gangwon Province, the PyeongChang 2018 Organising Committee, and Korea’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
The construction of the figure skating and short-track skating venue, ice hockey I and II stadiums, as well as the speed skating oval, is scheduled to be completed by October 2016, in order to host test events during the 2016 to 2017 winter season.
