Well, as I said I decided to just drop by for a few days instead.  I'll be sitting on a beach in Thailand the rest of the time.  Much cheaper...and warmer!

 

 

Yeah, lots of tickets for everything.  Unfortunately, only the very expensive tickets left for short track ($350).  I'm surprised short track is available at all still, considering how popular it is in Korea.  I expect that to sell out soon.  Biathlon and other ski events are plentiful and cheap.  

Ah. Sounds good, too!

I will go to Pyeongchang too! Quite easy to buy some tickets, because it seems no one else goes to Korea. A lot of speedskating, but also shorttrack, curling, figure skating, alpine skiing, snowboard and ... thank God ... BIATHLON!! Just bought two tickets for the 10KM sprint men. 

Yeah, I've basically loaded up on Biathlon mostly. Still seeing some skating events because of the atmosphere/love watching them, but only going to one of each.

How did you manage to get a Youth discount?  "Only Korean nationals are eligible for discount."

Apparently, if you buy the tickets through fan-to-fan, it's fine. Only Koreans could originally buy the discounted tickets, I didn't even have the option. But I could buy the Youth one in resale, and they just asked for age verification.

And on the off chance it doesn't work, still worth trying. If I have to pay the entire fee, at least I got a D seat.

Where is the resale website?

It’s under the ‘Fan-to-fan’ tab on the official ticket website.

Does anyone know where to find information on what will be on offer at the Gangneung cluster?  I know the Canadian House will be there, but I'm having difficulty finding any more information.  

 

We planned to arrive early to see what's going on, but I just realized the flame will (likely) be at Alpensia park since that's the main area where the ceremonies will be.  We're now considering hopping off the train one stop early to see what's going on there, but that will mean complicated shuttles over to Gangneung to get to the hockey game.  Not sure if it's worth the headache, but if you're going to the Olympics you should see the flame, right?  

 

The other option is to go back to the area on Saturday before our evening flight out, and then take the train to Incheon.  But then what do we do with our luggage?  Anyway, not sure if it's worth all this headache or if Gangneung will have enough to entertain us before and between events.  

 

Edit: I found this list of hospitality houses: https://medium.com/road-to-pyeongchang/olympic-hospitality-house-list-pyeongchang-ultimate-guide-to-pyeongchang-2018-cee00632a2c3

in addition to Canada, the Gangneung cluster will host Czech, Japan and...wait for it...the Holland Heineken House!  :beer:

So, yeah, I think my friend and I will find enough Asahi, Urquell and Heineken to keep us busy between events.  

 

Russia is also on that list, but I'm not sure now.

I also go to Pyeongchang but I don't know if I'm as lucky as you... I'll go there as a journalist and won't be able to follow all the sports as I have always loved.

That’s cool, too! What organization are you with? I’m a big fan of RT myself.

I’ll be rooting for Russia, btw. Even though I’m Czech-American ie. two nationalities that really don’t like Russia, I think some of their athletes have been treated way too harshly by the IOC and deserve some solidarity.

RT TV channel. Thank you! And for us it's a pity Koukalova won't come, she's got some fans here.

You’re with RT? No way! Would be cool to meet. I bought a 1.5*1m Russian flag for the opening ceremony. If you’d like to do an interview (American who sides with Russia lol) that would be hilarious.

 

I believe Koukalova will be back hungrier than ever in 2022. Northug and the NHL players too. Bjoerndalen and Ahn I’m saddest about- this was going to be their last huge thing, and they both had the health and ability to go. I’ll try to see Bjoerndalen out of competition.

 

Is it now 100% confirmed that Ahn, Shipulin etc aren’t going? I heard they’re ‘fighting to the end’ though I’m not sure what they can do to be reinstated on the final list.

I'm with Russia Today and will work for the TV channel and Russian edition of web site. Yes, interview with you would be a great thing for me, thank you! I'm not sure that I can attend ceremonies but I can come to any other event

IOC said that final list of athletes will be published today, but I guess it's all over for them. No use to appeal in CAS...
