Winter Olympics Host Options Limited by Warming Planet, Research Says

Britain won four medals in Sochi, the country's best haul since 1924, and that tally looks likely to become five after Russia's subsequent doping disqualification from the four-man bobsleigh.

The medal target range announced on Tuesday was four to 10, with an expectation at least five would be delivered in Pyeongchang.

The six they won in Sochi was their highest total for 30 years and second most ever at a Games.

The VR content will include the opening and closing ceremonies, behind-the-scene interviews, and all-time favorite events like ski jumping, snowboarding, figure skating, ice hockey, and curling.

UK Sport director of performance Chelsea Warr said: "One of the unique aspects of winter sport is its unpredictability".

Tasker has been ruled out of competing in the Games after suffering a minor stroke last Thursday, but is expected to make a full recovery.

Lizzy Yarnold was Britain's sole gold medal victor in Russian Federation four years ago, while David Murdoch's men's curling team won a silver and Eve Muirhead's women's team claimed bronze - the fourth medal was a bronze from Jenny Jones in the women's slopestyle snowboarding competition.

And the International Olympic Committee has indicated its desire to re-award the medals in PyeongChang provided the sanctions are upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport later this month.

VR streaming in sports isn't a novel idea, but this would be the first time for the Olympics to be streamed in VR to nearly all VR headsets.
