  • 57 athletes to represent Kazakhstan in 2018 Winter Olympics

The CAS says its secretary general Matthieu Reeb will make a statement at 5pm local time in Pyeongchang, South Korea, where the Winter Olympics start next week.

The South Korean government described the decision as "very regrettable". Bronze medalist of the 2014 Sochi Olympics Denis Ten is also set to participate.

For weeks, South Korean media have been analysing satellite images showing Pyongyang's rehearsals for a large military parade, scheduled for the day before the opening of the PyeongChang Olympic Games. They won't skate as a group until they land in Pyeongchang, practicing together all of four days before games begin.

The newly built 35,000-seat stadium boasts a $60 million price tag, and will serve as the centerpiece of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Ticket sales for both the Olympics and Paralympics in Pyeongchang have been one of the main concerns of the International Olympic Committee in the build-up to the two events.

Earlier in DEcember, the International Olympic Committee banned Russian Federation from next year's Pyeongchang Winter Olympics for what it called "unprecedented systematic manipulation" of the anti-doping system.

June 2, 2016 - PyeongChang announces the official mascots for the games: Soohorang, a white tiger, and Bandabi, an Asiatic black bear. You are part of a great team to which everybody belongs.


Others think the North called off the event as a response to a remark by South Korean Defense Minister Song Young-moo, who at a forum in Singapore on Monday said North Korea would be wiped off the map if it used its nuclear weapons. The torch is then handed to Angelis, the first torchbearer, who then passes it to its first South Korean torchbearer, former Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-Sung.

Pyongyang has responded that such South Korean reports were disrespectful to the North's honest efforts toward participating in the Winter Olympics, according to a Unification Ministry source.

November 7, 2017 - The POC announces that the 13 sporting venues are now 99.7% completed.

If they win, the Olympic anthem will be played.

Addressing dozens of "Olympic Athletes from Russia" wearing their neutral grey and red uniforms, Putin said the country would do everything to support the athletes left out of the Games.

President Thomas Bach arrived in South Korea on Tuesday to inspect preparations the upcoming PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
