Korea National Training Center, also known as the Taereung Training Center, located in Gongneung-dong, Nowon-gu, in the northeast part of Seoul, is the only national athletic training center of South Korea.[1]

Since its establishment on 30 June 1966 by the Korea Sports Council (대한체육회 大韓體育會), Taereung Training Center has been the home of Korean sports activities. It consists of 24 buildings, including training facilities, gymnasiums and dormitories in an area of 100,000 square metres (25 acres). The training facilities accommodate 20 different sport events such as athletics, gymnastics, archery, taekwondo, wrestling, swimming, and others.[2]

Due to crowding at the center, a new training center, Jincheon National Training Center, was built to cope with the athletes.
