Wie backs Korean 2014 Games bid
Michelle Wie
Wie will promote Pyeongchang's bid
Teenage golf star Michelle Wie is to become an honorary ambassador for the 2014 Winter Olympics bid of South Korean ski resort Pyeongchang.

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.
