    From re-opening geopolitical ties between North and South Korea to unexpected victories by athletes across the globe, PyeongChang 2018 repeatedly defied the expectations of athletes and media covering the Games.

    With the closing ceremony on Feb. 25 concluding the first of three consecutive Olympics in Asia, organizers of future Games can look back on what worked and what didn’t during the 17-day celebration of sport.

    Around the Rings’ extensive team on the ground in South Korea reflect on the successes and the room for improvement of organizers on the latest edition of ATRadio. Led by Editor Ed Hula, the ATR team grades the organization of the Games from transportation and media services to the atmosphere and sporting events.

    Hula is joined by ATR Publisher Sheila S. Hula, Content Editor Gerard Farek and Reporters Aaron Bauer and Brian Pinelli to describe their experiences in PyeongChang.
