PyeongChang Olympics; Trump announces presidential delegation

Ji Seong-Ho

Since the opening ceremony on Thursday, the Village Plaza has been visited by national teams from Great Britain, the Netherlands, Poland and the Czech Republic, as many global athletes will be relying on the venue for everyday life.

After the International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach cleared North Korea's participation in the Winter Olympics, their skaters had officially begun training, but are already a man down.

CBC Radio's Olympic Games ReportCBC Radio's Olympic Games Report will air multiple times daily across the CBC Radio network from February 9-25, and will include reports from South Korea as well as interviews with athletes and CBC broadcasters.

She said the U.S.is encouraged by the inter-Korean dialogue over the North's participation in the Olympics which has taken place since last month, adding that the US encourages such dialogue.

North Korean flags also flew during the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, the last time the North sent a big delegation to a sporting event across the border. Trump called the nuclear standoff with North Korea "a tricky situation".

The south is hosting the Winter Games.

When confirming plans to resume the exercises, US Joint Staff Director Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. Mackenzie told reporters Thursday the drills would start "immediately" after the Olympics. Ri Yong Ho, the North Korean Minster for Foreign Affairs said in his letter to the United Nations that such an action would "block the reconciliation process" and drive the region into "an unpredictable unsafe phase". "I'm very very proud", said Backus.

"To the best of my knowledge, we are the only one that has been invited", said Auburn Mayor Nancy Backus. In January it resumed talks with South Korea, a move that the North's state media hailed as a path to reunification.

Today, the rest of the team went to South Korea. North Korea has thousands of missiles and artillery stationed along the border that can target the capital region of Seoul, where half the population of South Korea resides.

Rather, it is anticipated plenty of athletes will take a handful home as a souvenir.
