Shannon morrison is the owner of skyward active health centre in mallorytown and has been a physiotherapist for 16 years. She has worked in a variety of sports at all levels, from local brockville clubs to the canadian women’s basketball team and vancouver 2010 olympics. She’s currently attending the paralympics and writing a special ongoing feature about her experiences at the event.

Today I was wandering pyeongchang, looking in stores and searching for some groceries when a lady came up to me and asked if I was from toronto. I was wearing my toronto 2015 panam games jacket, so she explained that her daughter was now living in toronto and studying at U of T. Then marie told me there was a much bigger grocery store down the street and she could show me if I wanted.

I thought she was going to point me in the direction of the store, but she walked me the whole distance, about five to 10 minutes.Olympics paralympics


as we walked she told me that she was from a city about four hours from pyeongchang, but had come to the olympics and paralympics to see this part of korea. Marie worked in the huge souvenir superstore during the olympics and then became a tourist information volunteer for the paralympics. She told me most people come to pyeongchang for skiing in the winter, but in the summer they come to enjoy the sunshine WITHOUT any mosquitoes.

We started with the vegetables and fruit – korean apples are her favourite so I had to buy some – and continued down each aisle. I learned about the herbs specific to this part of korea, the vinegars they use when eating raw fish to ensure they don’t get food illnesses and how they use a variety of grains in their rice, never just white. I also found out that pyeongchang is very proud of their beef. It has a distinct taste from the rest of the country due to the mountain location resulting in different nutrients in the hay.Marie said

I also learned that what we are finding on the menus at the paralympic venues might be more designed for tourists than typical korean favourites. There is an item called a moon pie, similar to wagon wheels in north america, which I have seen in a variety of places. Marie said they do not normally eat them, but the chinese love them and they have appeared more often in the stores during the olympics and paralympics. We have also been exposed to a lot of fried and spicy food, but, again, marie said this was more for restaurants and not what they actually eat in their homes.

After about an hour, we left the store with two korean apples, aloe juice, another juice made from corn hair (the little hairs that drive you crazy when you are trying the shuck corn) and her favourite cheese.
