North Korea to co-host Winter Olympics

North Korea may be involved in hosting some Winter Olympic skiing events next year. This suggestion came from South Korea which is the official host of  The Winter Olympics in February 2018.

 

North and South Korea’s political relations won’t have any influence on The Winter Olympics. North Korea is welcomed to take part and their National Team have already taken part in some test events. Moreover, Seoul proposes to host some skiing events in North Korea as they have the “top-class” Masikryong ski resort. But the real aim is political – to ease tensions between both countries on the peninsula.

 

Additionally, South Korea’s sport minister Do Jong-hwan proposed to build an inter-Korean women’s ice-hockey team to compete in the Olympics in Pyeongchang 2018.
