Winter Olympic games have started on February 8.

Pyeongchang is hosting the 23rd Olympic Winter Games. This South Korean city has won the right to hold the Games after two previously unsuccessful attempts beating bids from Annecy, France, and Munich, Germany.


Opening and closing ceremonies will occur at Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium, a temporary venue that can accomodate 35,000 spectators.


The Pyeongchang Olympic village will house up to 3,894 athletes and team officials during the Games, while a second village in Gangneung will accommodate more than 2,900 people.


It's the second time the Olympics will be held in South Korea; Seoul was the host city for the Summer Olympics in 1988.


The 2018 Winter Olympics will feature 102 events in 15 sport disciplines. The sports include bobsleigh, curling, figure skating, luge, snowboard and ski jumping.
The International Olympic Committee added some new events for the 2018 Winter Olympics: big air snowboarding, freestyle skiing, mass start speed skating and mixed doubles curling.


Closing Ceremonies will take place on Feb 25.
