(Olympics) PyeongChang organizers cyber-attacked during opening ceremony

No entry Elena Nikitina Russia's skeleton bronze medalist in Sochi four years ago one of 28 Russian athletes denied entry at the Winter Olympics by new CAS ruling

A DPRK taekwondo demonstration team has also come to demonstrate the traditional Korean martial art during the Winter Olympics.

The Korean skating sensation has long expressed a desire to use her public role to share the light of Christ by witnessing to her Catholic faith in global competitions and performances. The family, starting with her grandfather Kim Il-sung, has led North Korea since it became an independent nation.

Women's ice hockey (Korea vs. Switzerland): This will be notable if only because it marks the debut of the joint Korean ice hockey team, a union between North and South Korea that follows an unprecedented Opening Ceremony march together.

The political road ahead is a long and complicated one, as protests in the region during the ceremony testify, but inside the Olympic Stadium the sentiment was largely of hope.

At an official lunch hosted by South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Guterres expressed his "total support" to Moon for establishing "a very important positive development in inter-Korean relations". Pence and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe sat nearby, looking expressionless.

As if to drive the point home, Kim Jong Un used the eve of the Olympics to throw a massive military parade in Pyongyang that was highlighted by several huge intercontinental ballistic missiles rolled out in launcher trucks. Like most opening ceremonies, the night's performances were tied together with a story.

Pence, who has promised more sanctions on North Korea, met with defectors from the country and also brought along the father of American student Otto Warmbier, who died after being kept in a North Korea prison.

While Moon did not hesitate to shake hands and smile with his North Korean visitors, Pence didn't appear to even look in the direction of the North Korean delegation during the Friday event. The world's ninth-ranked team, affectionately called "Smile Japan", is in Group B of the women's competition that starts on Saturday, reports Yonhap news agency. It was built in the 1960s as a luxury facility for USA troops stationed in the South.

During his New Year's Day speech, Kim reached out to South Korea and raised the idea of starting high-level talks for the first time in two years to discuss the possibility of North Korea's participation in the Olympics.
