A North Korean figure skating pair have qualified
for next year’s PyeongChang Winter Olympics, opening the door for possible joint participation
with South Korea. Ryom Tae-ok and Kim Ju-sik came sixth at the
Nebelhorn Trophy in Germany, on Friday, taking one of five available qualifying slots, as
three teams who finished above them had already qualified. They are the only North Korean athletes to
have qualified for next year’s Olympics in South Korea, and are likely to remain that
way. The Moon administration has been pushing for
the Koreas to come together at the home event to boost inter-Korean relations…such as
competing together, or at least entering the opening ceremony under one flag.

    It seems unlikely that North Korea is going to win any medal/ trophy at the 2018 Olympics hope the leader Kim Jong Un doesn't get angry and kill the two athletes if they don't win anything at the Olympics.
