International Olympic Committee to decide on N.Korea in 2018 Winter Games”

The good news is Pyeongchang, South Korea, which will host the 23rd winter games next month, is on that list which should leave athletes competing far happier than they were among the slushy ice and bare mountains of the Olympics in Sochi, Russia four years ago.

It comes a day after South Korea's vice sports minister Roh Tae-Kang said the South had proposed marching with North Korea at the Olympics' opening ceremony and also forming a joint women's ice hockey team during the high-level talks which took place on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, North Korea confirmed it would join in the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games which is scheduled for February 9 to 25, following Seoul's proposal that Pyongyang send a large delegation as well as a cheering squad to PyeongChang. In April 2017, South Korea allowed the North Korean team to travel to the South for the Women's World Championships in ice hockey.

The torch toured the southern and central parts of South Korea after arriving on November 1. Joining teams would make that issue moot and allow even more North Korean athletes to compete.

However, the International Olympic Committee has said it will consider offering wildcards to North Korean athletes.
