In earlier talks on January 17, North Korea had mooted sending some 150 delegates, athletes, cheerleaders, and reporters to the Paralympics.

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) on February 1 said it had invited North Korea to the Paralympic Games and offered two bipartite slots to athletes competing in Para-Nordic skiing events.

The Paralympics are an global multi-sport event that showcases athletes with a wide array of disabilities competing for their home countries, including those with impaired range of movements, limb deficiency and developmental disabilities.

The 2022 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games will be held in Beijing and neighbouring Zhangjiakou. Six guides were also allowed to assist the performance of the visually impaired athletes. "But we'll be able to meet our target if athletes and members of the delegation get the best out of ourselves".

13-time Paralympic medalist and Paralympic Hall of Fame member Chris Waddell (alpine skiing), as well as veteran snowboarding reporter Tina Dixon, and 2006 Olympic curling bronze medalist Pete Fenson, will also serve as analysts. Appropriately, the bear is a symbol of strong will and courage, qualities that are sure to be present in abundance during the Paralympic Winter Games.
