POCOG President Cho Yang-ho announces the slogan for the PyeongChang 2018 Olympics, 'Passion. Connected,' during the games' 1,000-day countdown ceremony on May 16.


About 5,000 athletes and staff from about 100 countries will participate in the 15 sport disciplines at the international winter sporting event, scheduled to take place from February 9 to February 25, 2018, in Pyeongchang, Gangwon-do (Gangwon Province).

The slogan for the PyeongChang 2018 Olympics is, "Passion. Connected." The slogan expresses the organizing committee's vision to extend, through one united passion, enthusiasm for and participation in winter sports to a wider audience around the world, opening new horizons for winter sports and for the Winter Games more broadly.
