Great Britain set record medal target for Winter Olympics at Pyeongchang 2018

VR users will be able to experience a winter sports athlete prepare for the Games; witness the culture, sights and beauty of Korea; and explore the PyeongChang Olympic venues.

Much rests on the performance of short track speed skating world champion Elise Christie, on Eve Muirhead maintaining her momentum with the women's curling team and the ability of our snowboarders and slopestyle skiers to deliver on undoubted potential.

UK Sport's investment for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics and Paralympics cycle was £14 million.

Seoul National University Hospital (SNUH) said it has formed a team made up of 130 medical staff, including 48 doctors, so they could be stationed at treatment centers at the athletes' village, stadiums and training centers for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in Gangwon Province.

Britain is not renowned as a winter sports nation.

"These potential bidding cities don't just see value in hosting the Olympics, they believe that they will gain by being in the race, and the International Olympic Committee needs to partner with them and empower them to realise a full potential", Safioleas added. Constantly hovering over the Games is the spectre of doping.

The latest in a series of Winter Olympic landmarks, this being one month to go, rolled out at the Korean Cultural Centre in with London where UK Sport set its medal target in PyeongChang at a minimum of five.

North Korea's participation has a special significance because it was announced amid icy inter-Korean relations.

A joint march at the opening ceremony would be a stunning statement for the Games dubbed the "Peace Olympics", which will open about 50 miles (80 kilometres) from the heavily fortified Korean border on February 9. "If the US and North Korea calm down a little bit, then everything should pass pretty well. We have to work for the best and be prepared for the worst", Sun said. "There are still some very good skaters from Europe and America, thus the competition will be very fierce in Pyeongchang and we have to fight really hard for every single medal", Sun said. The hope is there will be plenty of "medal moments", as UK CEO Liz Nicholl calls them, leading to inspiration, pride. For all the funding, planning and ambition, there are some things which remain unknown.
