Olympians to Compete at National Winter Sports Festival

The stars of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics will appear at the National Winter Sports Festival that is taking place nationwide until Saturday.

The Olympic delegation only arrived back in Korea on Tuesday, giving the athletes scant time to prepare for the nation's largest winter sports competition.

A total of 2,518 athletes from 17 cities and provinces will compete in various disciplines such as speed skating, short track, figure skating, alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, ice hockey, snowboarding, biathlon and curling.
