BIATHLON ALBERTA - KOREA EXCHANGE (Aug. 7)
Biathlon Alberta is excited to announce an international sport exchange with our sister province of Gangwon, Korea! The exchange, consisting of a Korean entourage visiting Alberta, followed by an Alberta entourage traveling to Korea, will take place over the course of the next 12 months. From December 1st through 10th, 2014, a group of 10 youth biathletes from Korea will visit Alberta. The tour will begin in Edmonton, prior to traveling to Canmore where the athletes will compete in NorAm/Calforex Cup #2.
A number of activities are being planned to engage Biathlon Alberta members in the exchange, including welcoming and farewell banquets, home visits, and training activities.
Upon conclusion of the 2015 biathlon season (dates to be determined), a delegation of young Alberta biathletes will be invited to visit Gangwon, Korea on the return leg of the exchange.
Stay tuned to the www.biathlon.ca for more information on the exchange, including selection of the Alberta athletes who will visit Korea.
This exchange is a collaborative effort between Biathlon Alberta, Alberta Sport Connection, and the government of Gangwon, Korea.
