IOC President Honoured in South Korea for Contribution to Peace

Keiichi Sato of Japan in action during a Biathlon training session ahead of the Pyeong Chang 2018 Paralympic Games

Audiences everywhere are set to be captivated and inspired as the world's best athletes gather in PyeongChang for the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games and, as rightsholder for Europe*, the EBU will see the Games broadcast free-to-air in over 25 countries.

The skier said his competitive spirit may show itself during the opening ceremonies. With a hashtag #DoWhatYouCant, Samsung is expected to deliver more exciting experiences as per tradition during the past Paralympic Games. "I remember going into the opening ceremonies and there were 80,000 people screaming and yelling, and I'm really hoping that (McKeever) will experience that just as much as I have". This also comes with a fast-charging battery pack and a special protective case. There are no new sports in Pyeongchang but eight new events have been added to snowboarding.

The last time major global talks were held to persuade North Korea to disarm were the Six-Party Talks involving North and South Korea, the US, China Japan, and Russian Federation.

In the visit to the North, the International Olympic Committee will likely discuss North Korean participation at the upcoming Olympics, including the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics and 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. During the Games last month, Japan complained after discovering the picture of Korea included the Dokdo/Takeshima Islands, territories claimed by both Korea and Japan in the East Sea/Sea of Japan.

"In 2006... I can honestly say it's a moment I will never forget", Nicholson said. Outside of monetary support, Lee said that the government won't grant the team access to the Alpensia sliding center, since an operator has yet to be found, according to Yonhap. "We are continuing to support the athletes and the national Olympic committee while always respecting, of course, the United Nations sanctions [on the North]". What-ever the case as Albertans we all know very well that dear old Mother Nature will summon the final "melt-down" when-ever she wishes, that we need to change our clocks ahead one hour on Sunday, March 11th, and that April showers will eventually bring May flowers.

In a press conference here today, Pyeongchang 2018 President Lee Hee-beom said he was "very proud" of the improved dialogue between the two Koreas. "It is our wish that everyone went home with fond memories of their stay in our country".

Lee said that he wishes all of the foreign journalists who came for the Games would quickly return to Korea.

"From the bottom of my heart, thank you again for sharing our fantastic journey".
