South Korea has suggested that North Korea co-host some ski events for the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

The proposal is in line with the suggestion earlier this month by Moon Jae-in, South Korea's new president, that the two countries could lead a bid to host the 2030 World Cup.

A North Korean taekwondo team will join South Korean athletes this weekend in a demonstration at the opening ceremony of the sport's world championships in Muju, South Korea.

While many in South Korea are keen to see reduced tensions with their northern neighbor, achieving the balancing act required to co-host an worldwide sporting event might be too much for two countries still technically at war.

"North Korea says the Masikryong Ski Resort was built according to global standards, and I intend to discuss this [carrying out some Olympic events there] with [North Korea's delegate to the International Olympic Committee] Chang", Do said during his visit to the headquarters of the Pyeongchang organizing committee, as quoted by The Chosun Ilbo.

North Korea has made a decision to send its demonstration team to the World Taekwondo Championships, which will be held for three days from Saturday in Muju, North Jeolla Province.

The Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, will take place from 9-25 February.

A 13-hour time difference between NY and South Korea could actually work to NBC's advantage for showing live events such as skiing and figure skating in USA prime time, Zenkel said, adding that events for US ski racers Lindsey Vonn and Mikaela Shiffrin should be a draw.

Moon, the son of refugees from North Korea, advocates greater dialogue with their neighbours.

Currently, North Korea have not qualified any athletes for the Games, with pairs figure skating representing their only hope.
