Teenage golf star Michelle Wie is to become an honorary ambassador for the 2014 Winter Olympics bid of South Korean ski resort Pyeongchang.
Wie will promote Pyeongchang's bid
The 17-year-old, who has had finished third in two majors to date, grew up in Hawaii but has Korean parents.
"I'm proud of my Korean heritage and also a big fan of winter sports," said the American.
"If the 2014 Winter Games are held in Pyeongchang I'm sure they will be a fantastic and memorable experience."
Pyeongchang narrowly lost out to Vancouver in the race to host the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympics.
It will learn its fate on 4 July 2007 when the International Olympic Committee will choose between Pyeongchang, Salzburg in Austria and Sochi in Russia.
