The Entire Nike Team USA Medal Stand Collection Drops Next Week

A medal haul of between four and 10 is projected at the Winter Olympics, which starts in South Korea on 9 February.

South Korea is reportedly considering joining its women's hockey team with North Korea after talks between the two nations this week led to the announcement that North Korea will send a delegation to the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

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.

NBC and Intel also said that viewers will also be able to "fly through the Olympic world, tour Olympic venues and different areas throughout Korea".

The six they won in Sochi was their highest total for 30 years and second most ever at a Games.

Short-track speed-skating has been given a target of one to two medals, based on the talents of Christie. James Woods and Izzy Atkin won world championships medals previous year while snowboarders Katie Ormerod and Katie Summerhayes, along with slalom skier Dave Ryding and the cross-country skier Andrew Musgrave, have had great starts to their seasons.

British competitors claimed a record-equalling four medals at the Winter Olympics in Sochi four years ago, when Lizzy Yarnold starred with gold in the skeleton bob.

There is also a hope that figure skaters Nick Buckland and Penny Coomes can challenge for a medal after injuries.
