WINTER OLYMPICS 2018
Pyeongchang, South Korea
Re-opening for the end of the Olympic games: 23-25 February 2018
On 9 February, the 35,000 capacity PyeongChang Olympic Stadium will host the Opening Ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in what meteorologists predict may be the coldest conditions since Lillehammer hosted the 1994 Winter Olympic Games.
Warmer relations between the two Koreas and the participation of athletes from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in the Games has created increased interest from a news perspective. Athletes from the two Koreas will march under a unification flag and a joint ice hockey team will see North and South Korea compete together for the first time. IOC President, Thomas Bach, has said the country's presence can send a message of peace to the rest of the world.
On a less harmonious note, the last-minute decision by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to overturn the Olympic life bans of 28 Russian athletes "may have a serious impact on the future fight against doping", according to a statement by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The CAS said that in 28 cases evidence was "insufficient" to prove doping.
Eurovision will be offering live positions outside the accreditation area throughout the Games.
