Here's How to Watch the 2018 Winter Olympics

President Vladimir Putin has ordered the government to organise a sports competition for Russian athletes banned from the upcoming Winter Games in Pyeongchang over a doping scandal, his spokesman said Wednesday.

2 mobile carrier KT, an official partner of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, said on January 31 it has finished preparations to demonstrate the world's first fifth-generation network service at the games.

The International Olympic Committee banned Russian Federation from next month's event in South Korea after a report on a vast Moscow-backed doping scheme in previous Games.

Speed skater Olga Graf rejected the invitation on Tuesday, saying "the sport has become a bargaining chip in dirty political games".

"But you and all lovers of sport should have no doubt that Russian Federation has supported and supports the idea of clean sport".

Mattis: Diplomacy Should Impose Reason On North Korea's Kim
President Donald Trump has threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea , if forced to defend itself or its allies. The Pentagon rejected that idea, although it didn't give a new start date for the exercises.

He said Russia considers the decisions not to allow some Russian athletes to take part in the 2018 Olympics to be odd. "From the very beginning we've said that we will support any of our athletes' decisions".

On 5 December, the global Olympic Committee (IOC) has suspended the national team of Russian Federation from participation in the Olympics.

It was also reported that Christophe Dubi, the Olympic Games executive director for the IOC, said a "last push is needed" to reach the ticket sales goal.

The United States will send its largest team ever to a Winter Games, with 242 athletes, followed by Canada with 226. That leaves 168 "Olympic Athletes from Russia" who must compete under a neutral flag because of IOC sanctions related to doping at the Sochi Olympics. Every Olympic event will be available to livestream on NBC Olympics, but depending on where you are in the world you can also download the NBC Sports app (U.S.), visit BBC Sport (UK), or Eurosport Player (UK).

But the International Olympic Committee left the door open for athletes without a history of doping to compete at its invitation without the Russian tricolor, national emblems or anthem.
