The XXIII Olympic Winter Games will take place in PyeongChang, South Korea, and begin with the highly-anticipated Opening Ceremonies on Friday, February 9.

For 16 days, hundreds of athletes from 93 nations around the globe will compete in 15 winter sports, from figure skating to curling to alpine skiing and biathlon. Learn more about each discipline and the schedule of events.

The 2018 Games are the first in Winter Olympic history to hold more than 100 medal events. Also for the first time, viewers in all U.S. time zones will be able to enjoy live coverage of the games, instead of a delayed replay in local time.

2017 graduate Bob Trosset arrived in South Korea earlier this week to begin his coverage of the 2018 Games.

Bob Trosset, ’17, arrived in South Korea earlier this week to begin coverage of the 2018 Olympic Games in PyeongChang.

Trosset works as a production assistant for NBC Sports in Washington, D.C., and is on location in PyeongChang for the next two weeks, conducting interviews with and capturing behind-the-scenes stories of athletes and teams as part of NBC’s network coverage of the Games.

The 2018 Games are his second Olympics. Trosset, who earned his bachelor’s degrees in Spanish and Communication from Loyola, worked as an intern for NBC’s Today Show during the 2016 Summer Games in Rio, during which he blogged about his experience.

Loyola magazine followed his journey as he rubbed elbows with world-class athletes and coaches and took in the spectacle of the events in Brazil—and we are excited to have a backstage pass once again, as we follow this Greyhound for the 2018 Winter Games.
