Petro-Canada, a Suncor business, recognizes the commitment and sacrifice that athletes’ families and friends make and wants to provide them with an opportunity to cheer on “their” athlete at the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games!  As part of this program, all events in which a Canadian athlete competes will have two (2) tickets available per athlete, per session for use by a family member or friend of each athlete. These tickets are for every session including all preliminary, elimination, and medal round events - and will be paid for by Petro-Canada.

The PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games take place from March 9 – 18, 2018.

Petro-Canada has a proud history of supporting Canadian athletes, their families and coaches since 1988.

We will be using WhatsApp as a messaging system while in South Korea. WhatsApp is a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS. WhatsApp is available for iPhone, Android, Windows Phone and Mac/Windows. Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan (or wifi) that you use for email and web browsing, there is no additional cost to message and stay in touch.

Currency and Power

Currency

The won is the currency of South Korea: ₩or KRW

•Visa is the only credit card accepted at official Paralympic venues – other credit cards are except at most non-offical venues

•South Korea is a no-tip culture

Power

South Korea is on the 220V standard at 60Hz and uses two round pins with no ground –the same shape (but not necessarily voltage) used in many European, South American and Asian countries
