The chief of a Seoul-based inter-Korean sports exchange promotion group said Wednesday he believes Pyongyang will send athletes and a cheering squad to the Winter Olympics south of the border next month.
Kim Kyung-sung, who leads the South-North Korea Inter-Korean Sports Association, made the claim based on his attendance at meeting with North Korean officials in China last month.
"I believe there is a big possibility that the North will come to South Korea with its cheerleading group," Kim said to Yonhap News Agency in a phone interview. "Unlike the Summer Olympics, North Korea should have a small number of athletes at the Winter Games. But to show that it's sending a large delegation, North Korean cheerleaders would probably accompany them." Read More via Yonhap.
