The Listening Post: Pyeongchang 2018: Sport, politics and the media game

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

At the opening ceremonies of the 2018 Winter Olympics, athletes from two countries still officially at war - North and South Korea - marched into the stadium together, under one flag.

Those images of a momentarily unified Korea were beamed around the world and will have registered in Washington.

Wherever they light the Olympic flame, there are going to be geopolitics in the mix.But these games, given where they are, and the governments involved - have taken Olympic politics to another level.
