Russian figure skaters win 2018 Olympics silver in team competition

One Tinder user, going by the name Beulah, aged 32, wrote on her profile: "Yahoo says Tinder is super blowing up in Pyeongchang right now so I added the app because what do you think".

James, Australia's flagbearer at last Friday's opening ceremony, was second on the overall standings with 96.75 to sit behind two-time Olympic champion Shaun White, with the American leading qualifying with 98.50. But Adams told Reuters that "Maintaining secure operations is our goal".

The Winter Games are being staged only 80km (50 miles) from the border with North Korea, which is technically still at war with the South since their 1950-1953 war ended in a truce rather than a peace treaty. According to the International Olympics Committee report, the athletes who competed in Winter Olympics have been injured more than any other athletes. Sometimes, I wonder if the Olympics should be every three years, just so we don't have to wait so long for them to come back around.

"Of course, no evidence will be presented to the world".
