Photo Journal: Ready to fill their boots

Volunteers pose for photographs in front of a giant ice skating boot display lit up ahead of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics at the Gangneung Olympic Park in South Korea on Feb. 5, 2018. With only three days left until the opening ceremony, the final touches are being added to the park. While the area hasn't been opened to the public officially yet, several ice sport event venues and displays have been illuminated to get a feeling for approaching the start of the games. "I'm so proud to have the Olympic Games be held in my home country," said 24-year-old university student Shin Eun-hye. "I would like everyone coming from around the world to enjoy the games safely."
