Great Britain's Winter Olympics team challenged to secure at least five medals

Located in the Mountainous Gangwon Province, some 111 miles east of Seoul, PyeongChang will host Asia's first winter games outside Japan and kick off an Asian Olympic cycle that reflects the region's growing influence on world sport.

The cumulative medal range for the Winter Paralympics Games is six to 12 medals with an ambition of at least seven medals which would mark the best performance in 30 years, and the best since national lottery funding came on stream in 1997.

In Sochi four years ago Team GB won four medals, their most successful in modern times. It is high risk, it has high reward, it has high stakes in a very competitive arena.

Britain is not renowned as a winter sports nation.


Yarnold, who has struggled this season, has been given a top-eight target for 2018 along with team-mate Laura Deas.

The VR content will include the opening and closing ceremonies, behind-the-scene interviews, and all-time favorite events like ski jumping, snowboarding, figure skating, ice hockey, and curling.

And in the event that you want to look like a victor - without going through the whole hassle of training, traveling and actually competing - you're in luck; consumer versions of the Team USA Medal Stand Collection will be available starting January 15 at nike.com and select retailers.

The Pyeongchang Olympic Games are less than a month away, and American athletes are getting ready to go for the gold. South Korea ambassador Joonkook Hwang welcomed the likely participation of neighbours North Korea.
