주말 장마에 태풍까지.. 광주수영대회 긴급 대응 체계 가동

O.C. for FINA Worlds operates emergency response system


As the seasons 5th typhoon Danas approaches Gwangju and Jeollanamdo, a set of measures to minimize its impact on the 18th FINA Championships has been enacted.

Hyungjin Ro has details.


Typhoon Danas is expected around Korea's southern coastal areas from today, bringing heavy rains and powerful winds, according to the weather agency.


The Gwangju Metropolitan Government and the organizing committee of the FINA Aquatics Championships began to operate emergency response systems to minimize any possible damage.


The City government performed safety inspections of competition venues and public facilities jointly with the police and the military and examined emergency supplies and mobilization systems for disaster response.


Officials are concerned that they may have to cancel or suspend events such as open water swimming, water polo and high diving due to weather conditions, while indoor games like diving and swimming will continue as normal at the moment.


The typhoon is predicted to decrease the number of spectators. More people were expected to enter the city this weekend, as the popular spectator event, swimming is scheduled to kick off on Sunday.


Kim Sung-Hak, Director of Disaster Response at the Gwangju Government said "The government, the organizing committee, the military and police will do their best for safety management, so that the athletes can focus on the games and citizens can enjoy the games safely."
