“The range of sport on display will be beautiful.”

Benjamin Daviet will be one of the favourites heading into PyeongChang 2018.

The Frenchman won the biathlon standing World Cup last season, and his performances at the World Championships went down as one of the highlights. He sealed three gold medals in Finsterau, Germany, two in cross-country and one in biathlon.

Daviet is now hoping to emulate this form at his second Paralympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea, in 2018. The 27-year-old claimed one medal, a bronze in the cross-country open relay.

PyeongChang 2018 will see more than 650 athletes from across the globe competing across six sports. Whilst the Organising Committee’s vision is to open up new horizons, Daviet tells us why you should watch PyeongChang 2018.


“The range of sport on display will be beautiful.”
