“There should be three Olympic villages. We also want to focus on pooling all the sports grounds, “Chung said. The whole process of preparing for the Beijing Olympics is part of the 13th Five-Year Plan.

Even before Beijing, the South Korean Pyongyang Winter Olympics will be held in 2018, which has already introduced individual sports grounds.The problem is the lack of accommodation capacity. “We know about it, but we do not hope that anything will change fundamentally.We believe that some accredited people would live in Seoul for an hour’s journey by speedway, but it is certainly not the optimal solution, “Gunilla Lindberg, chief secretary of the Association of National Olympic Committees, is aware of the commuting issue.

The Czech Olympic Park will not be the only one. “A similar will arise in The Hague, with whom we cooperate.I believe that over the next few years, each country will have its own Olympic Park, “said Kejval, who was also applauded by the President of the European Olympic Committee, Patrick Hickey. “This is a fantastic project,” he said during the General Assembly.
