Opening ceremony site connection.

Reporter Oh Jung-hyun, it seems like the opening ceremony was just finished. How was the atmosphere at the venue?


Yes, this is the Jeonju World Cup Stadium where the opening ceremony of the Jeonbuk Asia-Pacific Masters was held.

Behind me is the torch that will light Jeonbuk for the next eight days.

The day before yesterday (11th), the torch lit at the Mireuksa Temple Site in Iksan arrived here after touring 14 cities and counties in Jeollabuk-do.

Seung-Min Yoo, member of the IOC, served as the final relay runner, and lit up the torch with a drone to finish the opening ceremony.

The official opening ceremony began at 7:00 PM.

After the Taegeukgi was brought in and the national anthem was sung, the athletes entered the stadium.

At this time, we were greeted with our traditional madang play ‘Nosangnori’, and players from each country seemed to enjoy this special welcome.

Then, the opening declaration was made, announcing the opening of the World Sports Festival for All.

Some of you may be unfamiliar with it, but the Masters is an international multi-sport event recognized by the Olympic Committee and IOC.

Unlike professional athletes’ competitions such as the Olympics, it is a place for exchanges where retired athletes and amateur club members from all over the world mingle.

About 14,000 people from 71 countries will participate in this event.

They will compete in 25 sports at stadiums in 14 cities and counties in Jeonbuk until the 20th.
