Speaker of the Senate to represent Czechia at Winter Olympics

South Korean alpine skiers who failed to earn an Olympic selection will stage a protest in PyeongChang, the host city for the upcoming Winter Games, with their families, local authorities here said Saturday.

Angry demonstrators stamped on a picture of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un as a joint North and South Korean women's ice hockey team came together for the first time, losing 3-1 to Sweden in a practice match.

"When I think back to our first Olympics, we learned so much and we were very inspired, but since then our skating has gotten so much better".

At nearly every turn, South Korea has had to go great lengths to make sure its hospitalities don't run afoul of sanctions or other laws, according to South Korean officials. One South Korean government official told Reuters that a Finnish company will provide uniforms to the women's hockey team.

"Our correspondents (five teams) will work at the Games".

"The meeting takes three times as long".

Global sanctions ban cash payments to North Koreans.

Athletes from both North Korea and South Korea were to walk together during the opening ceremony and were to carry the Korean "Unification Flag" - a flag created to represent all of Korea when athletes from the North and South participate as one team in sporting events.

Earlier this week it emerged that the North had scheduled a large-scale military parade for 8 February, the day before the Winter Olympics commences. "The perceptions of young people will change gradually", he said. An organizer told Reuters that they are not sure if the North Korean team is eligible to receive these perks because of the United Nations sanctions. Last year, he became youngest men's champion in more than 50 years at 17-years-old and. The final day is February 25.

Canada is sending 17 skaters, the largest figure skating contingent from any country, has a couple medal hopes, and gold medal ice dance skaters Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue will carry the Canadian flag into the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Stadium.
