PYEONGCHANG 2018 DAY BY DAY
A RECORD TOTAL OF 102 GOLD MEDALS WILL BE AWARDED IN 15 DISCIPLINES ON SNOW AND ICE AT PYEONGCHANG 2018. HERE IS OUR DAY-BY-DAY PREVIEW OF WHAT YOU CAN LOOK FORWARD TO.

All three events will be decided in the evening, but there will be no shortage of action throughout the day as the men’s and women’s curling tournaments gather pace, and the ice dancing competition gets underway, with the qualifiers for the freestyle skiing halfpipe and the women’s snowboarding big air, not to mention the semi-finals of the women’s ice hockey, also taking place.

What do the medals look like?

Created by designer Lee Suk-woo, the medals for these Games feature dynamic diagonal lines and three-dimensional consonants from the Korean alphabet that stretch across the face, according to the official website.
They've been crafted with a texture to resemble tree trunks, symbolizing "the work that has gone into developing Korean culture and the Games themselves," the website said.
Between the bronze, silver and gold medals. the gold weighs the most -- at 586 grams. Overall, 259 sets of medals have been cast for these Games.

I'm sad the Opening Ceremony is at 3AM for me. I wanted to stream it live to avoid watching NBC's primetime coverage of it. ohdearplz.png

I saw that the mens short team event for figure skating will be broadcast tomorrow night in the US, before the opening ceremony. Nathan Chen, here I come.

I've been looking into that. if you're a comcast customer in US there's free NBC streams, otherwise you could use a VPN to watch it on BBC or Australian tv for free. or I'd just look up the host channel in your country and try to find an unofficial stream the day of

I was talking about this specific season (2017-2018) where almost everyone and their mother got injured and couldn't compete at their best T_T

last olympics was messy in its own way but not in the same sense I was referring to

What time is the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony and when can I watch it?

 

If you want to watch the Opening Ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics live as it happens, you will have to get up pretty early in the morning.

 

The ceremony, held in Pyeongchang, South Korea, will begin at 3 a.m. Pacific time and you can livestream it at NBCOlympics.com

 

But for those of us who actually enjoy sleeping, you can wait until Friday night to watch a taped version beginning at 5 p.m. Pacific on NBC. It will be repeated on NBC starting at 8 p.m. Pacific.

try this -

Spoiler
- I'm not sure if they will livestream the opening ceremony, but they will have tons of live streams for all of the individual events.  I've used them for a couple of olympics, reliable site. 

 

I've been looking into that. if you're a comcast customer in US there's free NBC streams, otherwise you could use a VPN to watch it on BBC or Australian tv for free. or I'd just look up the host channel in your country and try to find an unofficial stream the day of

 

in the past you could also livestream from the CBC (canadia) via vpn.  though their coverage felt way more like the US coverage during Rio (very patriotic with almost no time for anyone else)
