A young performer participates in the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, Friday, Feb. 9, 2018.

And it cites data saying that Americans are the top users of its "Passport" feature, which allows them to match with people in the Olympic athletes' village, even if they themselves are back in the US. "Olympics are all about detail planning".

This time around however, the North has barely had to spend a dime.

But during Friday's evening broadcast, Intel will also organize the drones to resemble a snowboarder racing down a slope.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport said Saito "accepted on a voluntary basis to be provisionally suspended and to leave the Olympic Village".

Alex Hider is a writer for the E.W. Scripps National Desk. "We're going to give 100 percent".

Radunske has lived in and played for Korea for 10 years and made the effort to learn some of the language for common courtesy to communicate at restaurants or in cabs.

"I'm super happy because now this stupid question has gone away, if I'm thinking that my career is perfect without a gold medal", Hirscher said. The women's hockey team will be the first combined Korean team to appear at an Olympics (Winter or Summer).

At the Yongpyong resort, winds in excess of 70 kilometres per hour prevented the Alpine skiing competition from getting underway for the second day in a row with the women's giant slalom joining the men's downhill in being moved to Thursday.

"I suspect the plan for seating for tonight was developed months ago as a scenario that might play out", he said.

"Kim Yo Jong's power exists because of proximity to the leader himself".

The people in the red outfits are volunteers from Gangwon Province, where the city is located.

If "diplomatic dance" were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un's younger sister would be favored to win gold.

"It's in essence technology meeting art", says Anil Nanduri, general manager of Intel's drone group to Wired.

Organizing an Olympics is hard enough on its own.

"I'm still looking up to the big screen to see the result". "We'll be there to cheer our athletes, but we'll also be there to stand with our allies and remind the world that North Korea is the most tyrannical and oppressive regime on the planet". The two biggest, I think, will be 17-year-old snowboarder Chloe Kim and 18-year-old short-track speedskater Maame Biney.

Sung Baik-you, spokesman for the local organising committee POCOG, said the safety of the athletes was of the "utmost importance" in any discussions about re-scheduling.

He also said there were more sanctions coming for Pyongyang, but didn't outline what they would be.

The gusts were not as strong at the Phoenix Snow Park but caused farcical conditions for the women's slopestyle final with snowboarders who had spent four years perfecting their routines blown off the hill by crosswinds. Contact was inevitable. And the unified entry of the Korean athletes at the opening ceremony presented a truly cringeworthy moment.

Japanese short-track speedskater Kei Saito tested positive for the banned diuretic Acetalozamide in the first doping case of the Pyeongchang Games. The rhetoric war between North Korea and the Trump administration hasn't skipped a beat in Pyeongchang. She is a close aide to her brother "and since his accession manages his public events, itineraries and logistical needs, among other tasks", according to North Korea Leadership Watch. That's what the Chinese do. I've never experienced anything like that on the World Cup circuit. Maxwell from Georgetown University hypothesized. "They don't have to know 5G, as long as 5G helps the devices that help these people live better lives".

On the ice, there's no barrier.

Charlotte Kalla claimed the first gold medal of the PyeongChang Games. They're worried about a drone. The South has mobilized at least 60,000 policemen, military and other forces to maintain security during the Games. Pence is initiating his own propaganda push while he visits South Korea for the Games. "You fled to freedom".
