Jin Jong-oh, chairman of the 2024 Gangwon Winter Youth Olympics Organizing Committee, said, “We will make the Gangwon Winter Youth Olympics an event that can be a source of pride for Gangwon-do and the Republic of Korea.”

Chairman Jin said this in an interview on the 9th to mark the 100th day of the G-Day, and said, “Ahead of the 100th day of the opening, we are carrying out final repairs and facility improvement work on the stadium and athletes’ village.”

He emphasized, "Considering that the games are held in extreme cold and that this is an Olympics in which young people participate, we are paying particular attention to safety," and added, "We will do our best to spread participation enthusiasm for the successful hosting of the games during the remaining period."

Next is a Q&A with Chairman Jin.

*What is the overall preparation for the competition?
- With the 100th day ahead of the competition, the final stages of construction to repair and strengthen the stadium and athletes' village and improve facilities are in full swing.

It is scheduled to be completed by the end of this month.

In particular, we are reviewing detailed operational plans for each sector such as youth-centered participation strategies, cultural event and promotion strategies, transportation, communication, and accommodation, and are preparing for a flawless competition.

In the future, we will spread enthusiasm for participating in the Olympics by creating a national competition boom.

What were the difficulties in preparing for the competition?
- I think this may be due to the low public interest in the Youth Olympics.

Accordingly, starting one year after the opening of the competition, we have been working hard to prepare various festivals and events to encourage the participation of youth, who are the main characters of the competition.

For the remaining period, we will create a buzz to encourage participation and prepare for the competition without a hitch.

What needs to be improved?
- Special attention is being paid to safety, considering that the games are held in extreme cold, large crowds gather, and that this is an Olympics in which youth participate.

We will prevent accidents through close cooperation between the police, fire department, Gangwon-do, and the host city and establish a readiness to respond immediately when an accident occurs.

In addition, we are supplementing shortcomings by conducting operational preparation training for each field and stadium, assuming problems that may arise in actual competitions.

The key to successfully holding a competition is to spread enthusiasm for participation.

We will strengthen promotional activities so that many citizens and youth can experience the Olympics and support the shining passion of youth athletes around the world.

What are the plans to create a competition boom?
- We will conduct intensive promotional activities together with the government and Gangwon Province.

First of all, in order to create a sports festival that attractively incorporates K-culture, we will hold K-pop performances and classical performances every day during the competition period so that people can enjoy sports games and cultural performances at any time.

The Winter Youth Olympics can be said to be the time when future sports stars are born, so we will prepare for the best sports competition.

Daeheon Hwang (short track), Minseon Kim (speed skating), and Young Yoo (figure skating) are former Youth Olympic medalists.

Above all, we will create a competition that can be a source of pride for Gangwon-do and the Republic of Korea.

Our country has successfully led both Olympic Games.

As the organizing committee already has many staff members with Olympic experience and experts who have participated in numerous international competitions, we will use this know-how to successfully host the event.

*Some people are concerned about this tournament in the aftermath of the Saemangeum Jamboree
- We will thoroughly prepare cold weather measures for participating athletes, management personnel, and spectators.

We plan to expand the waiting space for athletes participating in the competition and provide winter clothing and hot packs and other winter supplies to operational personnel such as volunteers.

Additionally, a heated shelter will be prepared on the snow venue for spectators, and a resting area will be provided for pregnant women and the elderly.

Medical rooms will be set up in 13 locations, including the athletes' village, stadium, and Olympic hotel, and 253 medical personnel, including emergency technicians, will be deployed to prepare for emergency situations.

At the Hoengseong and Jeongseon snow sports stadiums, a 'FoP (Field of Play, competition area accessible only to athletes and essential operating personnel) medical team' consisting of senior ski technicians and those with experience at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics will be deployed.

In order to host a successful event, community cooperation and volunteer participation are also important
- Negotiations are underway to receive support for about 400 people from 18 cities and counties in Gangwon-do to run the event.

About 90 people will also be supported by related organizations to provide weather information, prevent doping, and electrical safety.

More than 2,000 volunteers will be selected by November after completing basic training.

The concept of the opening and closing ceremonies
- Director Yang Jeong-woong, who was in charge of directing the opening ceremony of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, will lead the opening and closing ceremony with a cultural performance using K content.

We will create a successful opening and closing ceremony with artists across culture, video, and art, not limited to K-pop idols.
