In this handout picture received from the South Korean Presidential Press Service President of South Korea Lee Myung Bak (C) speaks to journalists during an interview in Durban on July 4, 2011 concerning the bid for the 2018 winter Olympics made by the South Korean city of Pyeongchang. South Korean president Lee Myung-bak said he felt it was his duty and his mission to deliver the 2018 Winter Olympics to the continent of Asia. The 69-year-old - who is here to support the Pyeongchang bid - told a small group of journalists that he hoped that if successful the venue would turn into the mecca for winter sports on the continent.
