Yuna Kim appointed as Ambassador for the Winter Youth Olympic Games Gangwon 2024

21 Feb 2022 – Two-time Olympic medallist and figure skating star Yuna Kim has been appointed honorary ambassador of the Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) Gangwon 2024, which will take place in Gangwon Province (Republic of Korea) from 19 January to 1 February 2024.

This appointment comes only one day after the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games and less than two years before the Gangwon 2024 YOG. It symbolically marks the handover from the Olympic Games to the YOG, the next Olympic event on calendar, and the launch of promotional activities to engage with Korean young people.

As an international sports star from the Republic of Korea, Kim has been committed to developing winter sports around the world as an honorary ambassador for the Winter YOG for over 10 years since the 1st Winter YOG Innsbruck 2012. She was also the ambassador for the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

Kim said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as an honorary ambassador for the Winter Youth Olympic Games Gangwon 2024, following the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018. I will try my best to promote Gangwon 2024 and introduce Olympism and the Olympic values to young people around the world.”

For Gangwon 2024, she will work to promote the event and engage both the domestic and international young public to get behind the YOG.

Organising Committee President Shin Chang-jae said: “I am happy to appoint Yuna Kim as the honorary ambassador for the Winter Youth Olympic Games Gangwon 2024. We will do our best to generate a Youth Olympic Games boom for the next two years.”
