Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) President Brian Lewis is to engage with the Korean Ambassador to the country, Moon Up Sung, on developing an exchange and access programmes around the winter sports and the Winter Olympic Games.

As reported by the Trinidad Express, Lewis recently returned from South Korea where he was one of 10 "distinguished guests in culture and arts" invited by the Korea Foundation to a week of diplomatic activities.

The Korea Foundation is a non-profit public diplomacy organisation established in 1991 to promote a better understanding of Korea and strengthen friendships in the international community.

It carries out various projects for exchange between South Korea and foreign countries to cultivate mutual understanding.

Trinidad and Tobago last participated at the Winter Olympic Games in 2002, when Salt Lake City played host.

Flag bearer Gregory Sun featured on the two-man bobsleigh team that ranked last of the 37 countries represented.

Sun participated in all four runs, while Andrew McNeilly took part in the first two runs and Errol Aguilera was in the sled for the last two runs.

Sun also competed in the same event alongside Curtis Harry at Lillehammer 1994 and Nagano 1998 - Trinidad and Tobago's two other Winter Olympic appearances - with the pair managing 37th and 32nd-place finishes respectively.
