Korea's first exclusive training center for winter sports will open next year in Pyeongchang, Gangwon Province, where the 2018 Winter Olympic Games took place.
The Korean Sport and Olympic Committee last month signed an agreement with the regional government to cooperate to build the center.
The country currently has two national training centers -- in Taeneung, Seoul and in Jincheon, South Chungcheong Province.
The committee will remodel a three-story building which was used as the headquarters for the organizing committee of the 2018 Winter Olympics. It will invest W14.8 billion to set up facilities for biathlon, bobsleigh, luge, skeleton and skiing by October 2021 (US$1=W1,214).
The new training center will adopt the same training guidelines as those used at the one in Jincheon.
It will hire specialized trainers who will manage athletes' physical strength and health, and introduce state-of-the-art medical and scientific equipment to develop injury prevention programs for each sport and each athlete. It will also provide counseling, and strength and skill analysis for athletes.
