Park In-Bee announces her commitment to the Olympic legacy movement

Park In-bee, a candidate for the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Athletes’ Commission, visited the Ban Ki-moon Foundation for a Better Future on September 11 and met with Ban Ki-moon (former UN Secretary-General) and Cho Hyun-jae, President of the Korea National Sports Promotion Organization.

As a candidate for the IOC, Park expressed her desire to contribute to the international sports community and participate in the movement to spread the Olympic legacy.

In August 2023, Park, who was elected as the Korean candidate for the IOC Athletes’ Commission, met with IOC Ethics Commissioner Ban and said, “The Olympic Games are one of the most important events for global peace and friendship, and the unifying power of sport can be realized.”

“As a world-class golfer, Inbee Park has promoted the Republic of Korea through golf, and I hope she will continue to do so in the future,” Ban said.

Park also pledged to help spread the Olympic legacy. “In the future, I will support education to convey sports values to young people and strive to help them learn important values such as leadership and cooperation through sports,” she said.

Cho, the director of the National Sports Promotion Corporation, which manages the legacy of the 1988 Seoul Olympics, said, “We strongly sympathize with and support Park In-bee’s campaign to spread the Olympic legacy, and we will work together with the corporation to educate people about Olympic values and spread sports values.” 바카라사이트

“I competed in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics and the 2021 Tokyo Olympics because I dreamed of becoming an Athletes’ Commissioner,” Park said during her candidacy interview. “I won the gold medal in Rio with the Olympic spirit, and now I want to play a leading role in the ‘Olympic Movement’ by sharing that spirit with the world.”
