Orari gare sci Olimpiadi Pyeongchang

E' iniziata così la cerimonia inaugurale dei Giochi invernali di PyeongChang.


Il fotografo della Reuters Kim Hong-ji ha visitato una stazione sciistica abbandonata nella contea di Goseong che, dopo essere stata operativa per la maggior parte del ventesimo secolo, è stata chiusa nel 2006 per il bassissimo numero di frequentatori. I due Paesi hanno ripetuto la sfilata congiunta anche alle Olimpiadi di Atene del 2004 e a quelle invernali di Torino nel 2006. "Ci scusiamo per l'inconveniente causato a tutte le persone colpite", si legge ancora nella nota in cui si precisa che "tutto adesso sta funzionando bene come previsto e gli esperti di informatica stanno lavorando per tenere sotto controllo i sistemi". Per evitare il diffondersi del virus, il Centro coreano per il controllo e la prevenzione delle malattie ha reso nota un'altra indicazione da seguire: "Meno strette di mano e più sorrisi per salutarsi". La prima gara ad assegnare una medaglia sarà quella della 7,5 chilometri femminile di sci di fondo, in programma sabato 10 febbraio alle 8.15 (ora italiana) all'Alpensia Cross Country Centre.
