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...

I’m going to 26 events and the Opening Ceremony. Hahaha. 

 

Trying to get women’s figure skating tickets too. Want to see at least one Russian gold. See what it’s like.

 

If you actually want to do an interview then I’m down for sure! Not sure if I could really add much. I just thought it would be an entertaining idea. Though I definitely have a lot to say on the matter.

 

Shame about the list- I guess we’ll wait it out. Scandalous how they announce it so soon without appeal chance, plus without solid evidence. I do think it’s a conspiracy. Isolate Russia on the international stage. Even North Korea is being given nice treatment. Ridiculous.

 

I'm interested to know about the ‘alternative competitions’ for Russians and who will participate in them!

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.  

Sorry- really late reply. I recommend you join the FB group ‘Peeps in Gangneung’. It’s an English language group of expats and locals. Great for advice, companionship, and ideas of what to do! I personally found accommodation through there.

All right, I'm coming to Gangneung on 6th February and will stay there for 20 days. I hope to meet with you at some time after the opening ceremony. I'll have busy schedule but it's going to be a really great interview, I'm sure about that.

 

It's not yet clear about alternate events. They will be arranged in Sochi for everyone who missed Olympics, but I have no other details. When they organised such competition for Paralympians in 2016, I couldn't even find the results...

Nice and I have the same timeframe exactly. Except I’m away the 20th/21st as I’ll be in Seoul. PM me here when you’d like to plan the interview and we can go from there, haha. 

 

That’s weird about the Paralympic thing. Didn’t think it would be so obscure. I predict the 2018 will be a kind of ‘Russian Championships’ with few foreigners.. maybe a few Norwegian rejects too. Lol. Though a higher profile for sure. It has to be. A significant purpose should be to get exposure.

The Slovak Olympic House will be opened during the games in Gangneung, The 2 floors building of 400 will be open daily from 11:00 to 24:00 every Olympic day. The entry is free for the slovak and foreign athletes, journalists or simple visitors and fans.

 

The main idea of the Slovak Olympic house is as usual to present our sport, Slovak culture, music, traditions and especially gastronomy (No worries guys, Slovak beers will be available in sufficient quantity ;)).

 

The Slovak House is located near the Olympic Village and the Czech House. Its capacity is 150 people.  and everyone involved hope that will be the place of eventual Slovak successes official celebrations.

I would go to it but I'm stretched a bit thin at the moment. So Slovak house would be the next best thing :) Will be exciting for sure.
