Few Canadian cities cold enough to host future Winter Olympics


Team GB has been challenged to deliver their best ever Winter Olympics medal haul in Pyeongchang next month with at least five medals.

NBC recently added three Sunday NHL telecasts to its schedule, all falling during the February 9-25 Olympics.

UK Sport is targeting "at least" five medals at the Winter Olympics, with four to 10 representing the target range. Not only will this be the first time that any Winter Olympics has been captured in VR, but it will also be the first time that Olympic programming in VR will be streamed live in the US across a plethora of devices and platforms.

And UK Sport wants a return, but recognises the fine margins involved in disciplines like short-track speed-skating.

'The best way to describe this is "Theatre of Jeopardy". However, this is a particularly stretching target given the high risks, low margins for error across a range of events we have medal opportunities in, and in some events more unpredictable outdoor terrains that our athletes will need to skilfully navigate.

Britain is not renowned as a winter sports nation.

Also, following the decision of the International Olympic Committee, after the disqualification of Russian skiers, the bronze medal in the ski races at the 2014 Sochi Olympics will go to the Belarusian cross country skier Sergei Dolidovich. While the technology isn't mature enough to provide that air of reality, it would be interesting to see how it's received this time around and where the technology will stand in two years in time for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

Yarnold, who has struggled this season, has been given a top-eight target for 2018 along with team-mate Laura Deas.

The coverage will include the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as sports including snowboarding, figure skating, curling, and ice hockey.
