Bitter winds will see Friday's Winter Olympics opening ceremony performed in -10C temperatures, it has emerged - sparking fears it will be too cold for spectators. That, along with a warming trend in the region, should help maintain the integrity of the skis.

"We talk more than we walk", Pound added.

"We decided not to recommend this option to our guests", she said.

Some crew members were visible on the deck of the ship, flying the North Korean flag, as it prepared to dock in the south for the first time since 2002.

The words to O Canada have changed on several occasions, though not since 1980. Bobsledding on the other hand enjoys the most popularity in a majority of South America, as well as Mexico and the southern portion of Africa.
