Hey J.R. Celski, see you in PyeongChang

The first thing I did when I heard PyeongChang, South Korea won the bid to host the 2018 Winter Olympics was consult a map.  Where exactly is PyeongChang?  The city is located in lush, mountainous Kangwon province east of Seoul. I'd estimate it to be a 2 hour bus ride into the capital.  

Yu-na Kim wasn't the only Olympic medalist throwing it down for PyeongChang.  Winter bronze medalist Toby Dawson also rallied for his birth country.

One question I have for PyeongChang's delegation is who is the genius who decided to put a capital C without a space in the name?

If you think Koreans were passionate about competing in Torino and Vancouver, wait until you see them on home turf. They will be ON FIRE.
