Slalom specialist Mikaela Shiffrin is the best in the world in her discipline. There were 25 four years later, in Switzerland, in St-Moritz.

Nigerian skeleton slider Simidele Adeagbo was born in Toronto, Canada, while the Nigerian women's bobsled team - the first from Africa to make the Games - of Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga were all born in the USA, but always felt a deep-rooted affinity for Nigeria.

Maame Biney of Reston, Virginia, has already made history as the first African American woman to make a USA speedskating roster.

Her short programme - which she skates to music from "Carmen" - remains untouched. His only medal, a silver, came at the 2012 London Olympics.

But Norway is also strong in snowboarding, with Marcus Kleveland in big air and slopestyle. Shaun White hopes to bounce back after missing the medal stand in Sochi in what will probably be his last Olympic halfpipe event. He's the defending champion going into Saturday's 1,500 metres.

"Initially when the International Olympic Committee took such a strong stance to ban Russian Federation and strip the medals, it gave the athletes who were holding on to the spirit of sport, hope".

Q: Who WON'T be there? The International Ice Hockey Federation backed the NHL, and the IOC forbade any national team from selecting NHL players.

Nathan Chen, 18, from the US will be going for gold in a field that includes defending champion Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan.

Russian Federation won't be there.as an official delegation.

Kim went on to win gold three times in the X Games between 2015-16, beating out the woman she looked up to - and still does - Kelly Clark, a three-time Olympic medalist.

Q: How many medals will be awarded?

Q: What are some must-see events? The city is 80 miles from Seoul, which hosted the Summer Olympics in 1988, and about 60 miles south of the Demilitarized Zone that separates North Korea and South Korea.

Traditional men's and women's curling has been at the Olympics since 1998, but mixed doubles - a faster and sometimes seemingly more chaotic incarnation of the sport - is making its debut at the 2018 Winter Games.

'The 20-year-old from Brighouse was due to compete in snowboard slopestyle and snowboard big air and will undergo emergency surgery in the morning'. Watch "The Best Parts of the Winter Olympics" and tell us your favorite sports and athletes to watch in the comments! Short track and speed skating also will take place at night.

The Men's Individual Normal Hill Qualifiying round kicks off Wednesday.

The Canadians scored three in the fifth end to grab a 5-2 lead over the Hamiltons before the US team replied with one in the sixth and stole another point in the seventh when Lawes nicked the guard on her final throw. The women's mass start is set for February 24.

For the first time ever, the Winter Olympics will be broadcasted in native 4K resolution complete with HDR and Dolby Atmos. At least three North Koreans must play in each game. There are four of them in this Olympics, including a mass start speedskating event featuring 24 skaters that has been compared to a NASCAR race on ice.

The women's finals are February 23, and Team USA has three top competitors: Julia Marino, Jamie Anderson and Hailey Langland. "I think in the Olympic Games, it would take on a very different tone because when you're playing a football game, you're playing for the Jets, the Seahawks, the Ravens". Alpine skiing will take place during the day.

The opening ceremony will start at 8 pm KT (that's 6 am ET / 3 am PT here in the U.S.).
