US Vice President to lead US delegates to PyeongChang 2018

UK Sport chair Katherine Grainger recognised at a presentation on Tuesday that Britain, second in the medal table at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics with 27 golds, was not known as a winter nation.

Intel TrueVR "pods" at each event will create a 360 degree virtual environment where viewers can watch.

"The Olympic Games is a unique opportunity to bring people from around the world together to build camaraderie and cheer for their favourite athletes", said James Carwana, vice president and general manager of Intel Sports Group. Making events available live will only help the usage. To enroll in Verizon Up, customers have to download the My Verizon app. UK Sport has forecast 6-12 medals at the Winter Paralympics, which follows in March. Some of its prior VR coverage includes weekly Major League Baseball games, NCAA basketball tournament games and PGA golf events.

Pence will hold meetings with leaders in Seoul, South Korea and Tokyo, Japan where he will stress the US commitment to stability in the region.


On the Web: Interactive 180-degree and 360-degree video will be available online via NBC.com and on social platforms including Twitter*, Facebook* and YouTube*.

Banned on December 5 by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Russia had already retrospectively dropped to fourth in the standings from 2014 after being stripped of a total of 13 medals for anti-doping violations.

Record-holding jumper Sara Takanashi will headline Japan's hunt for skiing gold at next month's Pyeongchang Winter Olympics after the Ski Association of Japan named her and 10 others to its team on Thursday.
