Great Britain set record medal target for Winter Olympics at Pyeongchang 2018

Sun admitted that it would be very hard for the Chinese athletes to outperform their Asian neighbors Japan and South Korea at these Winter Games. This is the first time any of the Winter Olympics will be available in live VR.

The 21-year-old, whose 53 World Cup ski jumping wins are the most by any woman, aims to overcome the disappointment of the 2014 Sochi Games, when she fell short of expectations and failed to win an Olympic medal.

China collected three golds, four silvers and two bronze at the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Saint Mary's Hospital in Seoul said it will run a task force comprised of three doctors, two nurses and two emergency medical technicians to treat Olympians at the PyeongChang Games. Download the NBC Sports VR app from the Oculus*, Google Play* and Microsoft* stores to view with accompanying compatible HMD devices.

"We've implemented an education and training program for the past two years to provide medical service to the participants in the PyeongChang Olympics", said Kwon Soon-yong, head of the task force.

NBC has partnered with Intel to set up multiple camera pods to create interactive 360-degree VR environments.

Attitudes have changed, however, and the amount of National Lottery and government funding for the Olympics and Paralympics has risen to more than 32 million pounds ($43 million) across eight sports. The White House says Pence will stress USA commitment to stability in the region to leaders of South Korea and Japan.

VR streaming in sports isn't a novel idea, but this would be the first time for the Olympics to be streamed in VR to nearly all VR headsets.

Generating up to 1TB of data per hour, Intel True VR harnesses the massive, real-time processing power of Intel Core processors.

The BBC will capture the biggest moments of the Winter Games, airing across network TV, radio and digital channels.
