"Intel is helping to reimagine the Olympic Games so all spectator moments that happen in Pyeongchang become unforgettable experiences for people all over the world", Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said at his keynote address Monday at the Consumer Electronics show, adding: "Intel is integrating innovative technology to ensure fans don't just witness the moment, they experience it".

The 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics skewed the future of the Games because the estimated $50 billion budget bankrolled by Russian President Vladimir Putin's government has put off future bidders. UK Sport has forecast 6-12 medals at the Winter Paralympics, which follows in March.

That has more than doubled to £32m over four years for Pyeongchang, but the sums involved contrast starkly with the £100m annual investment in summer Olympic sports.

GB Bobsleigh performance director Chris Price said: "The last few days have been worrying for all who know and care for Bruce but we are naturally delighted that he is on course to make a full recovery". "There are still some very good skaters from Europe and America, thus the competition will be very fierce in Pyeongchang and we have to fight really hard for every single medal", Sun said.

Goals set, nerves increasing, form, hopefully, peaking and all for a country which, as Dame Katherine Grainger emphasised, is not known as a winter sports nation. (Tip: For some background on the enormous pressure of Olympic skating, watch I, Tonya first.) When to watch: 2/12 at 10 A.M. Some past and current Olympians will have the honour of carrying the Olympic flame that day, according to the Korean Sport & Olympic Committee (KSOC).

Yarnold has struggled for form this season.

UK Sport's other targets are: two to three medals from skiing and snowboarding; one to two medals in curling; one medal in bobsleigh; and a minimum top-eight finish in figure skating.

Sun said China has "some medal chances in short track speed skating, figure skating and freestyle skiing aerials" but warned that placing first will be hard. If we are lucky, we can get some gold medals. Keep an eye out for Team USA's 18-year-old Nathan Chen, the fifth-ranked skater in the world.

The medal target announcement was made at the Korean Cultural Centre UK in central London.
