Pence will use Olympics to push tougher stance on N. Korea

The CAS decision came just hours before the Games' opening ceremony later Friday night and avoided a showdown between the International Olympic Committee and CAS over the participation of the banned Russian athletes in South Korea the next two weeks.

Comcast Xfinity and DirectTV have both announced plans to offer next-day access to select events from the 2018 Winter Olympics in 4K HDR video and Dolby Atmos audio.

This will be the fourth joint Korean march at an Olympic Games, and the first since Torino 2006.

"It is a promise between the two countries and the foundation of our bilateral ties", Abe told reporters after meeting Moon in Pyeongchang, where he will attend the opening of the Winter Olympic Games.

The dinner brought together people from all walks of society, from the worlds of politics and business, from arts and society as well as many Olympic athletes, past and present. Like, if you think Canada is good at hockey now, you should see how much better they were than the rest of the world a hundred years ago. The rot went all the way to the top of Russia's Olympic Committee and was so egregious that the International Olympic Committee banned Russia's team from marching under its flag. But 168 Russians will still compete under a neutral flag as "Olympic Athletes from Russia" while 45 others had their appeal to compete turned down Thursday by The Court of Arbitration for Sport.
