    XXIII Olympic Winter Games Pyeongchang 2018 *** Official Thread ***


    0 Not allowed!
    Pyeongchang, South Korea Date: 9-25 February

    Defending skeleton champion Lizzy Yarnold will carry the Great Britain flag at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics

    Thursday, 8 February - day minus-one
    Medal events: none

    #LoveCurling is back. It's the first time that mixed events will feature at a Winter Olympics - outside of the traditional figure skating and luge team competitions - and as they are a new favourite of the IOC many more could appear in future Games.

    The eight-strong line-up of nations - which does not include Great Britain after an agonising qualification defeat - will have the honour of being the first to compete at Pyeongchang and begin their campaigns at 08:35 local time - which is still 7 February at 23:35 GMT in UK

    Men's individual normal hill qualification round - the only other action of this day.

    Those who miss out on a place in the final (on day one) will be eliminated more than 24 hours before the opening ceremony has even taken place - although the majority will be expected to return for the large hill event on day eight.

    Very much looking forward to this. Anyone else?
