KB Financial Group invests in KBSF on road to PyeongChang 2018

Korean financial services company KB Financial Group has reached a three-year sponsorship agreement with the Korean Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (KBSF).

The deal will run through until Korea hosts the 2018 winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang.

KB Financial Group will provide assistance to the KBSF in terms of covering training costs and supporting the team in international competitions.

Although Korean athletes failed to pick up any medals in bobsleigh and skeleton events at the 2014 winter Olympic Games performances have been improving. Yun Sung-bin (pictured) won three medals during the 2014-15 Skeleton World Cup season, including silver at the St. Moritz event.
