The athletes were disqualified from the sporting events, in which they participated in Sochi, and banned from participation in all subsequent editions of the Olympic Games.

The women's team will play its momentous first game against Switzerland at 9:10 p.m. on February 10 at Kwandong Hockey Centre in Gangneung, just east of PyeongChang.

North and South Korea launched rare talks early in January to bring North Koreans to the Pyeongchang Games after the North's leader, Kim Jong Un, said in a New Year's address he was willing to open discussions with Seoul.

They will compete under a neutral flag as "Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation".

Russian speed skater Olga Graf said on Tuesday (Jan 30) that she had turned down an International Olympic Committee (IOC) invitation to compete in next month's Pyeongchang Winter Games.

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., one of the few Olympics sponsors signed up until 2028, said it wants to upgrade the technology that keeps the Games running and will study the Pyeongchang Games to help find ways to save future host countries money. "We're expecting in the next couple of days there is still some more information about these legacy plans for the sports facilities".
