Winter vomiting bug’ hits Pyeong Chang ahead of Olympics but guests stay cool

"You must have had a hard time due to the cold weather", Moon said as he greeted Kim Yo-jong, referring to the frigid temperatures during Friday's opening ceremony. The North also last year conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test to date.

She appeared out of the night sky, a vision in white, gliding across a small surface of ice at the very top of the stadium. Though that $13 billion is just a fraction of the $50 billion Sochi spent four years ago, it's already prompting gossip about whether the money is well spent in South Korea's poorest province.

"The fact that our revolutionary friends haven't climbed the walls of the South Korean embassy is a big improvement in itself", joked another Twitter user. The United States fought with South Korea and maintains tens of thousands of troops and an "ironclad" agreement to protect its ally. Designed to improve their ideal skating position, they feed real-time body position metrics to the smartphone of national coach Jeroen Otter. South Korea was winning its first gold medal of the Olympics at short-track speedskating, but the biggest players were here. And as Qatar prepares to host the World Cup in 2022, Amnesty International reports widespread abuse of migrant laborers working on gargantuan stadiums.

The North's Olympic "detente" is a striking shift in tactics. There is an accompanying smartphone app which digests the data and spits out signals which generate a vibrating buzz at the wrist, allowing skaters to immediately adjust their posture. But she believes it is a worthy goal.


"We wanted to show the alliance seated together", the official said.

According to a tweet by the Washington Post's Tokyo bureau chief, Ms Kim left a note at the palace expressing hope that "Pyongyang and Seoul will become closer in the heart of Koreans" and for "unification and prosperity in the near future".

Organizers for the 2018 Winter Olympics say a cyberattack may have occurred during Friday's opening ceremony in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

It was an emotionally charged moment.


"Kim Jong-un couldn't travel himself, he would have loved to do that, but he would have an arrest warrant in South Korea", Dr Petrov said.

Dr Petrov said the timing of the handshake was important with the United States and South Korea's annual joint military exercises, postponed due to the Winter Olympic Games and set to go ahead in February and March.

Saturday's meeting between the two neighbours - technically still at war - is the first since 2007 when North Korea's premier visited the presidential palace. "So let's start talking and stop with all the missiles and everything else", he added. Both Kim Yong Nam and Kim Jong-un's sister, Kim Yo Jong, also sat in Moon's box.

"It's the first time Mike Pence has been accused of being a snob", a White House official said in response. Athletes from North and South Korea marched together under a single flag.


Security for anything involving the North Koreans has been exceptionally tight.
