Australian Olympic Winter Team website launched as countdown hits 200 days to go

24 July 2017

PYEONGCHANG 2018: There are just 200 days to go until Australia’s finest winter athletes hit the ice and snow for the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

To celebrate the milestone the Australian Olympic Committee has launched its dedicated PyeongChang 2018 Team website - http://pyeongchang2018.olympics.com.au/

The site features all the latest news, videos, galleries, athlete information and everything you need to know as Australia builds towards a successful campaign in February, 2018.

“Our athletes continue to focus on their preparations for PyeongChang 2018,” said Chef de Mission Ian Chesterman.

“With just 200 days to go, we are moving into the most critical period in the four-year cycle where athletes need to ensure they qualify.

“Many athletes are currently in Australia competing before they head overseas for the northern hemisphere competitions in the final lead-up to the Winter Games.

“The dedicated website will document each of the athletes journey’s, sharing their stories as they aim for success in just 200 days time.”

The site provides detailed information on the selection process for each sport, detailed venue maps and everything you need to know about each of the Olympic sports.

As each athlete is officially selected onto the Australian Team a full athlete profile will be launched detailing all of their latest news, a detailed biography and snippets you might have never known about some of Australia’s most talented athletes.

As athletes have done for previous Games, we will be taken behind the scenes on their journey’s through athlete blogs that will launch in the coming weeks.

The PyeongChang 2018 schedule is available on the site and during the Games detailed results for each event and Australian athlete will be highlighted.

A dedicated PyeongChang 2018 Australian Olympic Team App will be launched closer to the Games.
