South Korean skiers arrive in North for joint training event
February 1, 2018
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korean skiers flew to North Korea on Wednesday to train with its athletes in a conciliatory gesture the countries planned to mark the Winter Olympics in the South.
The chartered flight carrying a delegation of 45 — including 24 alpine and cross-country skiers, support staff and journalists — arrived in North Korea's Kalma Airport before the athletes went to the Masik ski resort, Seoul's Unification Ministry said.
The skiers are reserve members of South Korea's national team and won't be participating in the Pyeongchang Games that start Feb. 9.
