These Hot Olympic Athletes Will Be Heating Up the Games in Pyeongchang

British Columbian athletes brought home a total of eight medals (two gold, five silver and one bronze) during the last Winter Olympics in Sochi in 2014.

Although the Opening Ceremony for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics seemed watchable by all ages, many Japanese TV viewers thought one segment should have been labeled: "Warning: not suitable for young children". She delivered the original presentation to the International Olympic Committee seven years ago, pitching South Korea as a potential host country, and has been present at most of the official events leading up to the games.

"All the parties concerned have welcomed this invitation to North Korea...", he said. We are not going to reveal the source.

US viewers tuned in to a tape-delayed broadcast on Friday night that showed rehearsal footage from December, when Intel's light show broke the Guinness World Record for flying the most drones, 1,280, simultaneously.

In a reception ahead of the ceremony, Mr Moon said: "Athletes from the two Koreas will work together for victory, and that will resonate with and be remembered in the hearts of people around the world as a sign of peace". More than a million others, meanwhile, had put their names on a separate petition to the President of the Republic of Korea to ban the trade of dog meat.

Contrarily, North Korea has been raising the pitch on its missile development game plan.

North Korea had frank, candid talks with South's president: KCNA
Army commander Walton Walker, who's considered a war hero in the South for his battles against the North during the Korean War. North Korea's high-level delegation to the Pyeongchang Olympics held a luncheon on Sunday with South Korea's top officials.

Eager to put a reality check on the thaw in relations between the Koreas in advance of the Games, Pence met with North Korean defectors Friday and paid respects at the Cheonan Memorial in Pyeongtaek, which honors the 46 South Korean sailors killed in a 2010 torpedo attack blamed on the North. "An unauthorized individual came down the ramp onto the stage. and then that same individual was on stage later in the program", Tirico said in the broadcast.

"For our side, for the sports side, this dialogue will continue.", he said, adding that the IOC was in constant dialogue with North Korea's national Olympic committee.

Earlier, it has suggested that talks could start between the USA and North Korea once South Korea suspends its joint military exercise with South Korea.
