More than 2300 people competing in Special Olympics Texas 2018 Winter Games

The PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics are just a few days away but North Korea's participation has brought up many questions, especially on the perks that athletes and staff will receive. Organizers will supply each athlete's residence with condoms.

Currently, South Korea has only one active IOC member - former Olympic table tennis gold medalist Ryu Seung-min, who was elected to the IOC's Athletes' Commission for an eight-year term in 2016.

"Baskets with condoms will be placed at both men's and women's toilets at athletes' villages in Pyeongchang and Gangneung, the main press center, the media village as well as medical centers", reports the paper.

The announcement that the exercises will continue after the Games comes during a thaw in relations between the two Koreas, who will march together under a unified flag at the Winter Olympics opening ceremony.

The rise of dating apps like Tinder could be to thank for an anticipated increase of sexual activity in the athletes village.

The North Koreans are the second and final batch of 22 athletes who have won special entries from the International Olympic Committee for the February 9-25 Pyeongchang Games.

Oil prices shrug off U.S. record
Crude for March delivery rose 18 cents, or 0.3 percent, to $64.91 a barrel after ending the last session up 0.4 percent. Libyan crude exports peaked in October, before geopolitical tension in the region scuppered production once more.

The Belarusian biathlon team are already in South Korea.

"We're in a really exciting and wonderful place right now", Maia Shibutani said.

We're not saying the athletes at the Winter Olympics this year will be more promiscuous than ever, but we're saying if they wanted to, the opportunity is there.

South Korean military honour guards will be mobilised for the events, but civilian volunteers will be used for the North's ceremony on Thursday, organising committee spokeswoman Lee Ji-Hye told AFP.

"This Village will allow the athletes not only to prepare for competition, but it will also allow the athletes to enjoy the spirit of the Olympic Games and to show what the Olympic Games are about".

According to the South China Morning Post, 110,000 condoms will be distributed at the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang.
