German speed skater to make history

A German speed skater will make Winter Olympics history at the 2018 games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Claudia Pechstein will clinch the title of the first woman to compete in seven winter Olympics.

She made her first Olympics appearance and took home a bronze medal in 1992 in Albertville, France.

Since then, Pechstein’s become the oldest woman to earn three gold medals in the same individual Winter Olympics event.

Preparations for 202 Olympics

The Summer Olympics in Tokyo are still a few years away, but construction of the first venue for the games has been completed.

The Musashino Forest Sports Centre will host the badminton, modern pentathlon and wheel chair basketball meets.

This is the first of eight facilities to be completed and cost over $300 million dollars.
