Korea proposes combined Olympic ice hockey team with North

Korea proposes combined Olympic ice hockey team with North

South Korea said Saturday that North Korea proposed that their talks next week address a North Korean art troupe's visit to the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in the South, rather than the participation of the nation's athletes.

Some of South Korea's former Olympic champions will take part in the PyeongChang Olympic torch relay on Sunday as it passes through the home stadium of the 1988 Seoul Olympics.

There was no immediate response from North Korea to the proposals.

HTC 10 Gets The Android Oreo Update
Since the company is releasing this update in batches, it is likely to hit your smartphone in a couple of days. The lock screen bug seems to be affecting only Nexus and Pixel smartphones running the Android 8.1 Oreo build.

Separately, the International Olympic Committee has proposed a meeting on January 20 at the IOC headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland, involving the rival Koreas to discuss North Korea's participation in Pyeongchang. Pyongyang had said it had agreed, at intra-Korean talks this week, to send a large delegation, including a cheering squad, to PyeongChang 2018. The North has yet to respond to that offer as well. Joining teams would make that issue moot and allow even more North Korean athletes to compete.

Although they have marched at previous Olympics opening ceremonies - under the blue and white "unification flag" - the two Koreas have never fielded a joint team at any multi-sport competition, such as the Olympics or Asian Games. South Korea is grouped with Sweden, Switzerland and Japan in the women's tournament.
