The Winter Olympics begin on February 9th in Pyeonchang, South Korea. Officially known as the XXIII Olympic Winter Games and commonly known as Pyeongchang 2018, this global multi-sport event runs through February 25 and will feature more than 100 events in 15 different sports. Viewers in the US will be able to access live coverage instead of delayed replay for the first time in Olympic history. This will be the second Olympics for South Korea with Seoul having hosted the summer games in 1988. Organizers of the games have had a lot to worry about including poor ticket sales, North Korea's bad behavior, and the ban of Russian athletes from a doping scandal. If that's not enough, freezing temps have many concerned that spectators may face hypothermia while watching the competitions. Have we mentioned that the event organizers didn't bother to put a dome on the main stadium? Go Team USA!
