IOC Boss to Visit North Korea after Winter Games

Patty Aguilar | 15 February, 2018, 06:54

Hanna Olsson (26), of Sweden, collides with South Korea's Choi Jiyeon (10), of the combined Koreas team, during the third period of the preliminary round of the women's hockey game at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Gangneung, South Korea, Monday, Feb. 12, 2018.

"I would love the team to get the Nobel Peace Prize", Ruggiero, a member of the IOC's executive board said a day after the unified Korean team competed at the Pyeongchang Olympics. The North Korean government allowed 12 players to join the roster of South Koreans at the last minute in an apparent gesture of goodwill, but many question whether North Korea's move is a genuine attempt to reach peace with its southern neighbor or merely a publicity stunt by the dictatorship to draw attention away from its unchanged totalitarian regime.

But even as the home team were being pounded, the 200-strong North Korean cheerleaders in red, blue and white tracksuits chanted, "Cheer up", clapping and waving mini-unification flags in unison and setting off a Mexican wave. The two opening losses meant the match against Japan would not matter in terms of qualification, yet the players competed with heart.

"ONE!" responded a slightly smaller group of South Koreans at the back of the tribune.

Huge Cobra Gold conflict video games kick off in Thailand
Marine officials say the exercise seeks to advance regional security and ensure effective responses to regional crises. The exercise represents the longstanding friendship between the Thai and the American people.

The Games have triggered a rare moment of reconciliation between the two Koreas. "This is my team and I scored a goal for my team and I would also say that I am definitely not a hero it was a pretty crappy shot that took a couple of bounces and went into the net".

That's because three weeks before the Olympic Winter Games began, Murray was thrust into one of the biggest dramas in PyeongChang: North and South Korea - two countries that do not get along.

Koo Bon-jae, a 20-year-old student from the South Korean capital, added: "I was initially against it but I was touched after seeing them on the ice together".

The combining of the North and South Korean Opening Ceremony delegations and hockey teams has been received positively so far, seen by many as a sign of hope that the two countries' relationship can eventually thaw after over a half-century of conflict.
