The 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics concluded with a spectacular closing ceremony here on Sunday. In the closing ceremony, as was the case during the opening ceremony, North and South Korean athletes marched together in a show of unity which many hope will lead to stronger inter-Korean relations in the near future.
Seven South Korean athletes who won medals at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics will be eligible for military exemption, officials said here on Monday. - US cross-country skier Jessica Diggins, chosen as the American team flag bearer in the closing ceremony, despite racing in the arduous 30-kilometer race.
While officials in PyeongChang, where the Olympics was held, acknowledged that the Games were hit by a cyber attack during the opening ceremony on 9 February, they refused to confirm who was responsible.
The province's Quest for Gold program supports over 1,300 athletes from over 50 sports, while also supporting programs that enhance coaching and training to help athletes reach their full potential.
The International Olympic Committee re-affirmed the integrity of the Games' electronic systems but said little beyond that, declining to reveal the source of the attack.
It also featured traditional and contemporary Korean dance, music, puppets, a giant turtle - a sacred animal in Korea - and finished with a thumping dance party for the athletes.
In 2022, the Chinese capital will become the first city ever to host both a Summer and Winter Olympics.
Each action, as shared in a sustainability report ahead of the Games - which reinforces the mission of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to establish sport as an agent for positive change - is created to benefit both humanity and the environment across several areas.
Competition in PyeongChang will conclude with the cross-country women's 30km event. NBC and NBCSN together has seen the demo drop 17% compared to four years ago, according to the network. With an eye on encouraging electric auto adoption, permanent electric vehicle recharging stations were installed for community use, even after the close of the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018.
Kovalchuk said the Russian players had planned to sing the anthem on the medal stand if they won the gold medal.
Great Britain's best Winter Olympics previously was the four medals won at Chamonix in 1924 and at Sochi in 2014.
The outlandish costs of a reported $51 billion were the start of problems in Russia that continued with unseasonably warm weather and eventually a major drug scandal that forced IOC leaders to make Russian athletes compete in Korea under the Olympic umbrella instead of their nation's flag and colors.
The two Koreas marched behind their own flags and Russian Federation looked forward to a quick end to its ban over mass doping as the curtain fell on the engrossing Pyeongchang Winter Olympics on Sunday.
A number of Russian athletes were caught doping despite the ban, and the International Olympic Committee voted unanimously on Sunday to uphold the prohibition on official Russian colours or flags during the closing ceremonies.
The 2018 Winter Olympics may have just ended, but the countdown has just begun for the next games. He went out and won two golds: in the Alpine combined and the giant slalom.
A record 102 medals was grabbed this year in 15 events.
Dom Parsons (men's skeleton), Izzy Atkin (women's slopestyle), Laura Deas (women's skeleton) and Billy Morgan (men's snowboard Big Air) all collected bronze medals. Germany also captured 14 gold medals but had eight fewer medals in total than Norway.
NBC Sports Digital also streamed every event of the PyeongChang games live, notching 2.17 billion streaming minutes - more than triple that of Sochi.
