Even when a host country isn’t very good at hockey, the Winter Olympics welcome their Olympians to take part on the ice.
But after some strong-arming by none other than Kim Jong-un, it’s now unclear who is actually hosting the tournament.
Striving for diplomatic talks with Jong-un, President Kim of South Korea has agreed to some very interesting stipulations for an All-Korea Olympic team in PyeongChang next month.
The most striking is undoubtedly what is happening to his women’s hockey team.
In an unprecidented move, the North and South have agreed to ice a weird roster of 30+ combined skaters at the Olympic hockey tournament.
12 – count ’em – 12 will be Jong-un’s North Korean athletes, having been introduced to their new “teammates” only days ago.
More from Daily Caller:
North Korea received approval from the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Saturday to participate in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in South Korea.
The rogue regime most famous for missiles, nukes, and pudgy dictators will send 22 athletes to the Games to compete in hockey, skating and alpine skiing.
North and South Korea will also, with the approval of the IOC, march together under a unified flag, something the two countries ripped apart by war have not done in a little over a decade.
Furthermore, the two countries will form a unified Korean women’s hockey team with a dozen players from North Korea.
What do you think about North Korean athletes taking Olympic roster spots away from South Korean hockey players?
