Olympic Games 2018 kick off in PyeongChang in one week

North Korea's national flag was raised in the South Thursday for the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, organisers said, after an exemption came into force to avoid breaching Seoul's tough national security law.

Pyeongchang's Olympic Village is set to house more than 3,500 athletes and officials in the Games' mountain cluster. President Donald Trump credited his "maximum pressure" strategy with bringing Kim to the table via intense economic sanctions and military drills, but North Korea maintained that it was an independent gesture meant to reunite the two neighbors who have technically been at war for more than six decades.

That being said, this isn't the most condoms to be handed out in any Olympic event.

Among the others Trump hosted were Hyeonseo Lee, an author who wrote about her escape from North Korea and her life as a fugitive in China, and Young-soon Kim, who was imprisoned for nine years after learning of a friend's affair with Kim Jong Il, the former dictator and father of the nation's current leader.

The US company had also designed one for South Korea, but its 23 players will not get to wear it, as they've been joined by 12 North Koreans on an unprecedented joint team.

In the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, India had three representatives in Keshavan, Himanshu Thakur (alpine skiing), Nadeem Iqbal (cross-country skiing).

On 8 February, the freestyle skiers will leave for Pyeongchang from Japan where they are wrapping up their pre-Olympic training.

The Gangneung Olympic Village will house athletes taking part in ice sports at the Games.
