UK Sport, the funding agency which distributes money to elite Olympic and Paralympic sport, has challenged Britain to win four to 10 medals at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.

Official confirmation from the International Olympic Committee is yet to be received.

In the message to Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon from his high-level inter-Korean talks counterpart Ri Son-gwon, the North also said it will later propose dates for working-level talks on its participation in the PyeongChang Olympics, the ministry said.

Taeyang is one of several Korean singers to be featured as an honorary ambassador for Pyeongchang 2018, along with opera singer Jo Sumi, Insooni, Jinusean's Sean, Girl's Day, AOA, and CNBlue's Jung Yonghwa. The VR content will include the opening and closing ceremonies, behind-the-scene interviews, and all-time favorite events like ski jumping, snowboarding, figure skating, ice hockey, and curling.

Nike will start selling Olympic gear on its website beginning January 15th. "With the help of Intel's industry-leading virtual reality technology, NBC Olympics will deliver a transformative experience that will bring to Olympic fans an entirely new perspective on the speed, thrills and excitement of an Olympic Winter Games".

By making the content available in VR, NBC looks to appeal to a wider audience and buck the trend of declining Olympics viewership. Folks using Samsung, Google, Windows, and Android and iOS devices will be able to access the content via the NBC Sports VR app.

Moreover, prime-time viewership for the 18-49 year-old age group at the 2016 Olympic Games was 25% lower compared with the Olympics four years earlier, according to Bloomberg.
