South Korea will host its largest annual sports competition this autumn.
The National Sports Festival is set to take place in October.
Some 30-thousand athletes will compete at dozens of venues in Seoul for a week.
To celebrate the festival's 100th anniversary, a cross-country torch relay will take place, starting from places, including Dokdo island and the truce village of Panmunjeom.
And for the first time in the event's history, the Bank of Korea will mint ten-thousand commemorative coins.
