In the Live Sites events, the audience is also able to experience the Olympic and Paralympic sports by following live broadcasts from PyeongChang 2018 Winter.


ValoClimb is available for visitors to try in several of the events. In the Tokyo event on 10th Feb, Japan’s national team climbers Keita Watabe and Aya Onoe had fun climbing and playing games with the visitors.
