Olympics 2018

Pyeongchang!

The South Korean city's bid beat out Munich, Germany, and Annecy, France on Wednesday to host the 2018 Olympic Winter Games after just missing bids for 2010 and 2014 in the past.

South Korea has never hosted a Winter Olympics, but hosted the Summer Games in 1988.

Congrats on finally being chosen and we'll see you in 2018!

Pyeongchang Really Wants The 2018 Winter Olympics!

Korea Olympics 2018

Seriously, the people in charge of wooing the olympic committee in Pyeongchang are not messing around!

Pyeongchang's been turned down twice already, and are trying their hardest to avoid the third time — by building more venues, condos and hotels, and a huge ski jump tower. Here's why it's so important to Pyeongchang:

"There's a belief here that Winter Olympics is something that goes only to developed countries, so we see it almost as a status symbol."

"We've got to win," says Ha-yeon Kim, a visual merchandiser in Seoul. "[Pyeongchang] has spent so much money and effort. It'd be somewhat embarassing if they lost again."

Pyeongchang is up against some behemoths though, such as the other two frontrunners: Munich and Annecy, France. So it's no wonder why Pyeongchang's nervous. According to some, though, Pyeongchang is the frontrunner by a hair, with Munich gaining ground behind them.

But, to us, we feel it's time to broaden this event world-wide! Give it to those who truly need and want it, to those it would do more positive things for!

It's time for Pyeongchang to get the Winter Wlympics!
