Cross-Country Skier McKeever to Carry Canada's Flag into Opening Ceremonies

British Columbia will be well represented at the 2018 Paralympics in South Korea

The South wanted a flag without the islands, but the North Korean delegation argued Thursday that it "does not accept the fact that Dokdo can not be marked due to political issues held in Korea", leading the International Paralympics Committee to decide that the two Koreas will march in individually.

285,000 tickets had been sold as of Wednesday.

"It was not politics using a sports event".

On Friday, the 10-time gold medallist will carry Canada's flag into the opening ceremonies of the Pyeongchang Olympics, leading a Canadian team 55-athletes strong. The Paralympic games are due to take place in PyeongChang from March 9th to 18th.

International Paralympic Committee (IPC) president Andrew Parsons said the body was "disappointed" but did not give a reason for the decision.

Record Audiences Get Set to Make the 2017 Grand National the Biggest To Date
For some , it will be a case of asking which horses have been at their most impressive this season that will give them the clues as to which Grand National horses to bet on .

It is the first time the North, which has often faced criticism for its cruel treatment of disabled people, has taken part in the Winter Paralympics. "We have the world's best athletes, world class facilities, and thousands of spectators filled with passion who are ready to witness sporting greatness on the snow and ice", Hee-Beom Lee, PyeongChang 2018 President, said in a statement.

The charm offensive was hailed by some as a breakthrough in relations but conservatives in the South issued warnings and the United States was unmoved in its tough diplomatic stance.

"To me, there's two symbols for Team USA: the national anthem and the American flag", he said.

The gesture by the athletes has received a major boost as the controversial North Korean President Kim Jong-un responded with a hint that he will press the button for reconciliation with their neighbours South Korea. "It brings people together", added Parsons.

"We are still talking about the convenient date for such a visit", Bach said at the Seoul City Hall after he was awarded honorary citizenship of Seoul by Mayor Park Won-soon. "Some progress has been made but not as much as needs to be". The New Zealand Paralympic Games Team will be chasing a target of two medals across two of the six Para sports. "And if there is anything that you remember, it is that Korea can host a great competition and that we have a unique culture that you want to tell your friends and colleagues about in your home country". "We have more broadcasters than ever before set to cover the Winter Paralympics which shows the growing global interest in para sport". "We hope both sides can continue to cooperate and contribute to having a successful Paralympic Games".
