Team GB targeting best-ever medal haul

Here's what the 'tree trunk' texture PyeongChang 2018 Olympic medals look like

The medal target range announced on Tuesday was four to 10, with an expectation at least five would be delivered in Pyeongchang.

Climate change could turn out to be the Winter Olympics' biggest spoil sport. 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 USA across a plethora of devices and platforms.

"We know that our goals for any Games are always ambitious", said UK Sport director of performance Chelsea Warr.

Nike has revealed their latest Team USA Medal Stand Collection for the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics that will be held in PyeongChang, South Korea beginning next month. It is high risk, it has high reward, it has high stakes in a very competitive arena.

However, that is poised to rise to five as the disqualification of two Russian sleds following the uncovering of systematic doping means Britain's four-man bobsleigh team, led by pilot John Jackson, is in line to be promoted from fifth to third. Pence will review ICBM defence systems in Alaska and reaffirm to the leaders of Japan and South Korea that the United States is fully committed to stability in the region, the official said. She and team-mate Laura Deas have been given a minimum target of a top-eight finish.

Because of climate change, though, by 2050 many prior Winter Games locations may be too warm to ever host the games again.

For PyeongChang, the opening and closing ceremonies will be streamed in VR, as will alpine skiing, snowboarding, curling, skeleton, figure skating, ice hockey and ski jumping, among other sports.

The medal target announcement was made at the Korean Cultural Centre UK in central London.
