The 2018 Olympic Winter Games are nearly upon us, and since the lovely South Korean Pyeongchang county is set to host the global multi-sport event, it seems only fitting that the nation's largest information technology company got to develop the official mobile app.

"More than 80 percent of the athletes in this pool did not compete at the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014", the IOC said in a statement looking to create separation of this year's approved athletes from the tainted pool of players at the Sochi Games.

A team of 169 athletes would have been the fourth largest delegation in Sochi, trailing only Canada, the United States and Russian Federation.

The week-long hearing at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) includes appeals from 39 Russians who competed at Sochi in 2014 but are now banned after multiple independent reports linked them to doping.

President Alexander Lukashenko sent his greetings to the members of the Belarusian Olympic team and expressed his confidence that in South Korea, our athletes will do their best to win.

Three-time world champion Christie apart, Britain have further medal prospects in curling, skiing, snowboarding, skeleton and bobsleigh.

Most Olympic medals: Shani Davis (speed skating) with four (two golds, two silvers). The 26-year-old, who is also in Aspen for the X Games this weekend, is the world champion in big air and now leads in the FIS Snowboard World Cup. Canada, another winter sports power, will have about 230 athletes here.

"I'm really excited", Taylor said.

"She needs to take as much as possible from the experience and try not to forget anything".

The South Korea-born athlete has been accused in the World Anti-Doping Agency-sponsored McLaren report.

The 59-strong team sees 34 men and 25 women selected, while 33 of the team will compete on ice in PyeongChang and 26 on snow.

The team has been announced, it's our biggest ever, and the first athletes have touched down in PyeongChang. It's a great milestone in our preparations for the Games to know our complete delegation travelling out to South Korea and the countdown is now firmly on for the Opening Ceremony on 9th February.
