  1. With less than a week to go until the end of the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Winter Games and the Closing Ceremony, I thought it would be nice to start this topic so that there is no hassle in creating a topic after Closing Ceremony is done and also the fact that I feel as though I need to contribute something to the forums. What do you guys think of the Closing Ceremony?
  2. Supposed i should make a thread about it since the Olympic village apparently opened its doors yesterday. 500 athletes have already moved in. It should be added there are two Olympic Villages. One for the snow athletes in Pyeongchang and another one in Gangneung for the ice athletes.
  3. The PyeongChang Winter Olympics is one of the most tech-friendly events recorded in the history of Olympic Games. From event app to AI and AR, the event has it all. After all, technology is the future, isn’t it? So, for all you tech enthusiasts out there, here's a scoop of all the event-tech at the Winter Olympics 2018: https://blog.hubilo.com/event-tech-at-the-winter-olympic-games-2018-part-1/ Would love to have your opinion on it! What are the tech innovations that you especially liked/disliked?
  4. We're just about halfway the games, but we already have some estimates of how much Pyeongchang 2018 has costed. $12.9 billion dollars. Still a farcry to the infamous $50 billion of Sochi, and it's almost on pair with the $13.1 billion of Rio 2016. Still though, it is a shame the costs increased because of transport (that train from Seoul to Gangneung along added a lot of money to the budget) https://www.cbssports.com/olympics/news/2018-winter-olympics-pyeongchang-games-reportedly-cost-4b-more-than-expected/ Time will tell, but the early indications are that the big bucks may be paying off. Just this week, Shaun White's gold-medal run at one of Pyeongchang's venues became the second most-watched event in NBC's Winter Games history.
  5. Last week, the slopestyle course for both Snowboard and Ski were unveiled as part of the 100 days to go events. PYEONGCHANG 2018 OLYMPIC SLOPESTYLE COURSE REVEALED AND IT LOOKS CRAZY https://www.dewtour.com/snow/pyeongchang-2018-olympic-slopestyle-course-revealed-looks-crazy/
  6. I thought I should make a separate thread about this, considering its starting to gain a lot of momentum at the moment as a great majority of South Koreans are looking with contempt this decision which might marry the reputation of these games. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-olympics-2018-northkorea-icehockey/plan-for-joint-olympics-team-with-north-gets-icy-reception-in-south-korea-idUSKBN1F50E8 To add more insult to injury, it seems they even forced SK coach and the team players to not even talk to journalists anymore. http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr/northkorea/2018/01/16/0401000000AEN20180116010500315.html?sns=tw Many players of the Hockey team are also reported to be displeased with the whole sudden decision, working for many years with the hopes of winning gold only for being most likely placed in the bench because of a political statement. The most insulting thing was the PM saying "They weren't going to win anyway" as a justification. Even if that was the case, you just don't say that. It's a big shame the opportunities of many female athletes went into the trash due to this. I initially didn't understood why some conservatives in SK kept accusing Moon and his friends of being closeted North Korea sympathizers, but after this I think i'm starting to understand. This has also affected Moon Jae In reputation. His support has dropped 20 points since November after the whole drama with the Hockey team happened. What's the opinion of the rest of GB about this new drama happening around these games?
  7. Hello everyone, I've been locked out of my old Gamesbid account so I had to start over with a new name. And thank you in advance to anyone who has suggestions. As we have feared, getting accommodations are extremely difficult for these games. Travel sites have just now opened the dates for the games and there are so few hotels and most say they are already sold out. I've looked at Airbnb and few places are actually close to the two clusters and some are charging thousands a night. I've tried to use Google Maps to no avail- there is little public transportation that comes up. In the transportation thread it was stated that the train to and from Seoul would be $45 USD and there is just no financial way that's a good idea for staying in Seoul the whole time. Has ANYONE been able to get accommodations? If so how did you find them? Side note: I know there are at least 4 new hotels to be built but I can't even find their names to look into booking. Has anyone seen info about this as well?
  8. Hi all, we are new here to the Games Bids forums, although we have visited the website for news in the past. I wanted to help some people with transport information seeing it is not readily available. We have been to PyeongChang a few times, and transport was one of our biggest worries. KTX from Incheon will run 16 times a day, 10 carriages, 2 are drivers compartments, 8 for passengers on which at least 2 will be for accredited persons (athletes, media, officials). Each carriage carries 45 passengers and tickets will go on sale in December via Korean Rails website for around Won 50,000 (US$45) each way. The only issue is accredited persons take priority so with some schedules or flights arriving, some trains will have more than the 2 carriages reserved. KTX from Seoul will run 35 times a day, 10 carriages, 2 are drivers compartments, 8 for passengers on which at least 1 will be for accredited persons. Journey time is around 2 hours. PyeongChang 2018 are reviewing the schedule but because the KTX is a separate company, they need to work directly with them on their transport plan. Public Transport plans will be released in December including the network of buses they will use in the province to move everyone. The actual main transport hub is not in Alpensia, but in Jinbu, so those from the coastal zone will need to travel further and then back track to any venues in Alpensia. We have the following Transport Map to assist with anyone for the Games and we are happy to also provide any advice or answer any questions you may have.
