(9 ~ 25 Feb. 2018)
The XXIII Olympic Winter Games will be held for 17 days from 9 to 25 February 2018 in PyeongChang, Gangwon Province, the Republic of Korea. PyeongChang was selected as the host city of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games after receiving a majority vote at the 123rd IOC Session held on 6 July 2011 after three consecutive bids. The Olympic Winter Games will be held in Korea for the first time in 30 years after the Seoul Olympic Games in 1988. PyeongChang will be the stage for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies and most snow sports. Alpine speed events will take place in Jeongseon, and all ice sports will be competed in the coastal city of Gangneung.
The white tiger, now the trustworthy mascot for the Olympic Winter Games in 2018, has been long considered Koreas guardian animal. Sooho, meaning protection in Korean, symbolises protection offered to the athletes, spectators and other participants in the 2018 Games. Rang comes from the middle letter of Ho-rang-i, the Korean word for Tiger, and is also the last letter of Jeong-seon A-ri-rang, a cherished traditional folk song of Gangwon Province, where the Games will be held.
Soohorang, the mascot of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games took its motif from the white tiger. Soohorang not only has a challenging spirit and passion but also is a trustworthy friend who protects the athletes, spectators and all participants in the Olympic Games. Can't wait for Soohorang's remarkable activities!
