North Korean Paralympic Athletes Arrive in South Korea

The ceremony later followed with dancers' performance, and North Koreans clapped their hands, while waving their national flags.

Parsons said during a press conference at the Main Press Centre in PyeongChang, some 180 kilometers of Seoul, that he is excited for the 12th Winter Paralympic Games that will kick off their 10-day journey Friday. "One is the acknowledgement or the effective rebuttal of the findings of the McLaren Report". "I'm really optimistic we will smash the record for our biggest global TV audience outside of the host market".

Craig Spence, a spokesman for the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), said the athletes had been given "bipartite" slots for the games, meaning they had not been able to meet the full qualification criteria. Based on its findings, WADA deemed RUSADA non-compliant and recommended that the country be banned. Though the attacks were closely monitored while the games continued, PyeongChang officials admit that a cyber-attack was first done during the February ninth opening ceremonies. The IPC could also prevent Russian Federation from attending the 2020 Tokyo Summer Paralympics.

The event will mark the opening of the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games to demonstrate support for the Canadian athletes competing in PyeongChang, South Korea.

"Of course it has a very special meaning being in the Korean Peninsula, after all that has been happening in the last few years (regarding) the level of tension here, not only between the two Koreas but also some other countries involved".

"The participation of North Korea and the two cross-country skiers is extremely significant, and sends out a strong message of peace through sport", he said.

"And I think they were very big during the Olympics - the built terrain that they'd made was very sharp and quite aggressive, and I think in taking that out, they maybe went a little bit too far".
