2018 Winter Olympics: How to watch the opening ceremonies online
The 2018 Winter Olympics have finally arrived.
Every four years, many nations around the world will end up sending their best athletes. This time around, the games will come from South Korea. In the history of the Winter Olympics, this will be the first time that South Korea will be hosting the games. It is also worth noting that in the history of the Winter Olympics, there have been no nations in the Southern hemisphere to host the games.
There are plenty of storylines that will make this Olympics interesting. For starters, this will be the first time that North and South Korea will be marching together. It is worth noting that the two nations have been enemies for some time. So this is a sign of unity. I am not sure if this will lead to something down the road, but it is worth watching for. According to the New York Times, this isn’t the first time that these nations have walked into the opening ceremonies together. They have done this nine other times which included 2004 with Athens and the 2006 games as well.
Another thing that will be interesting to see what type of reaction will the United States end up getting. It seems that since Donald Trump has been in office, the precipitation of the US has changed. It will be interesting to see how that plays out. Speaking of the United States, we need to look at something else that people should be watching out for. For the longest time, the US has done well in hockey. They are not a good as Norway, Sweden, or any of the European nations. However, they have been able to keep their own.
