Gangwon 2024 100 days to go: the tour of the Olympic flame through Korea starts from Seoul

The countdown to the Olympic Winter Youth Games (YOG) in Gangwon 2024 begins.

With only 100 days to go before the start of the Korean festival, the Local Organizing Committee (YOGOC), led by its two co-chairs, Lee Sang-hwa and Jin Jong-oh, invited in Seoul athletes, K-pop stars and the public to celebrate this important milestone.

Thousands of people attended the event, which combined sport and culture.

This also officially decreed the start of the 'Gangwon 2024 Torch Tour', which will see the youth Olympic flame make an 80-day journey through 23 of the host nation's most important metropolitan cities and counties.

The torch relay will touch the most renowned and significant sites throughout the country and in each stage a special cauldron lighting ceremony will take place. This will be burned each time by a maximum of five participants, specially selected among young people, athletes and teachers. (agc)
