Winter Olympics: GB bobsleigher Bruce Tasker to miss Games after stroke

Virtual reality VR Edinburgh Digital Entertainment Festival

Average February daytime temperatures for Winter Games locations have steadily risen.

ParalympicsGB won six medals at the 2014 Winter Paralympics in Sochi, and they have been given a target of at least seven medals. Eighth place in Pyeongchang would seriously undermine any attempt to do so with elite funding body UK Sport, which issues grants based on future medal prospects that take into account previous results.

"Stories emanating out of Sochi costing $50 billion were misleading as the vast majority - $48 billion - lay in regeneration of the region not the Games", said Robertson, who is now chairman of the British Olympic Association (BOA). The team now appears likely to be a key topic at a four-party meeting of South and North Korean Olympic Committee members and officials from the Pyeongchang Organizing Committee that will be held by IOC President Thomas Bach on January 20.

GB Bobsleigh performance director Chris Price said: "The last few days have been worrying for all who know and care for Bruce but we are naturally delighted that he is on course to make a full recovery".

Tasker was part of the four-man crew which finished in fifth place four years ago and is in line for an upgrade after two Russian crews that finished ahead of them were handed doping bans. Some past and current Olympians will have the honour of carrying the Olympic flame that day, according to the Korean Sport & Olympic Committee (KSOC).

"The people are thus very familiar with it and the authorities are looking forward to the chance to send their taekwondo demonstration team and promote the idea that it originated in North Korea", the source explained.
