Here's what you missed February 9 at the Winter Olympics

Despite loss in Olympic opener to Switzerland, Korean women's hockey team celebrates unity

The two Koreas marched in behind a white flag that was emblazoned with a map of the Korean peninsula depicted in blue.

Murray and the players have simple but lofty goals for a team ranked 22nd in the world previous year: Win a game in the three-game preliminary round; advance out of pool play; and help hockey grow in South Korea.

Neither President Trump nor North Korean leader Kim Jong-un are on hand for the Pyeongchang Winter Games, but they were there in spirit.

President Donald Trump, as well as several US allies, have agreed to halt all military exercises until after the Olympics, Pence said.

He continued (in an accent that did not sound particularly North Korean): "So let's start talking and stop with all the missiles and everything else".

The meeting comes after the USA warned against engagement with Pyongyang.

Seoul also announced that it would begin direct talks with Pyongyang.

Pyeongchang, alas, is a very small place.

The primetime opening ceremony hosted by Mike Tirico and Katie Couric brought in a 16.9 overnight rating, according to the network.

It would be the first summit in more than a decade between Korean leaders. The Pences, seated next to Moon and just a row ahead of Kim and the North's 90-year-old nominal head of state, remained in their seats, unsmiling. Instead, he'd be treating the occasion as work, a chance to send a message to North Korea that the time for "strategic patience" is over.

Busses carrying a 280-member delegation of North Korean cheerleaders crosses a checkpoint on Tongil bridge after arriving in South Korea, in Paju on February 7, 2018. "I wanted to connect South Korea's past, present and future". The organizers say that while television and internet access was affected, it "it had not compromised any critical part of their operations".
