International Olympic Committee to decide on North Korea in 2018 Winter Games

Vice President Mike Pence and second lady Karen Pence will lead the USA delegation to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, next month, a senior White House official said on Wednesday.

In addition to the live VR events, NBC and Intel will be producing behind-the-scenes VR content prior to the start of the games on February 9.

"We've implemented an education and training program for the past two years to provide medical service to the participants in the PyeongChang Olympics", said Kwon Soon-yong, head of the task force.

The flame will tour Seoul for four days, with stops at locations such as Gwanghwamun Square, Gangnam subway station, the Han River Park in Yeouido and the Jamsil Olympic Stadium, the site of the 1988 Summer Olympics. "As for the Japanese delegation, I guess they will take home about four gold medals", Sun said. As for participation in actual winter Olympics events, the North has in the past announced plans to send athletes to at least three events.

Meanwhile, the list of potential future hosts of Winter Olympics appears to be dwindling due to climate change. One of eight countries participating the Pyeongchang women's ice hockey event, South Korea is part of Group B with Japan, Switzerland, and Sweden.
