N. Korea offers talks on sending art troupe to Olympics

Image Zoom

During an earlier era of inter-Korean detente, athletes from the two Koreas paraded together at global sports events such as the Olympics and fielded a unified Korean team. Eighth place in Pyeongchang would seriously undermine any attempt to do so with elite funding body UK Sport, which issues grants based on future medal prospects that take into account previous results.

Stratos Safioleas, who has worked as a consultant for a number of Olympic bids including London 2012 and South Korea's Pyeongchang, said the IOC must examine the legacy not just for the city hosting the Games, but for those bidding. (Tip: For some background on the huge pressure of Olympic skating, watch I, Tonya first.) When to watch: 2/12 at 10 A.M.

UK Sport director of performance Chelsea Warr said: "One of the unique aspects of winter sport is its unpredictability".

Goals set, nerves increasing, form, hopefully, peaking and all for a country which, as Dame Katherine Grainger emphasised, is not known as a winter sports nation. She and team-mate Laura Deas have been given a minimum target of a top-eight finish.

"It does come down to fine margins and it is extremely competitive now".

"I'm gutted not to be able to conclude the four-year cycle by going to the Olympics but I'm very grateful that I'm still fit and healthy", said Tasker, who was part of the GB four-man team that is line for a potential retrospective bronze medal from the last Games in Sochi in 2014. A separate source in Pyongyang noted, "North Korea has harped on the Kim family's affiliation with the martial art, building a large Taekwondo Center in Pyongyang (which includes a museum section) including propaganda explicitly connecting the Kims with the sport".

Republican U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham has said he opposed inviting the North Korean delegation to the Games.

A joint march at the opening ceremony would be a stunning statement for the Games dubbed the "Peace Olympics", which will open about 50 miles (80 kilometres) from the heavily fortified Korean border on February 9.

"Everyone at the British Bobsleigh and Skeleton Association wishes Bruce a full and speedy recovery and we will do all we can to help him on that path", said BBSA chairman, Christopher Rodrigues.

"The Games are in good shape but the road to finding hosts is a work in progress and they are fixing it but it isn't yet fixed". For all the funding, planning and ambition, there are some things which remain unknown.
