Winter Olympics are here! I’ve got all the details on the dates and times on how you can watch it. The Olympic games will be on the various NBC networks, you can also stream it live on NBCOlympics.com and on the NBC Sports app.

The Winter Olympics are being held in Pyeongchang, South Korea from Feb. 9 to Feb. 25. There are a bunch of sports like figure skating, alpine skiing, ice hockey, snowboarding and bobsledding.

This marks the first time a South Korea city has staged a Winter Games, Seoul was the summer host in 1988. North Korean athletes and performers rival South Koreans, its causing everybody anxiety because there can be a possible nuclear war if anything goes wrong. The North head of state plans to visit the South for the first time. The United States Vice President Mike Pence is stopping by also.

In the United states there are 242 competitors in 15 sports. There are great and well-known athletes such as Lindsey Vonn who is competing in the alpine skiing, Nathan Chen who is in figure skating, Shaun White playing for snowboarding, and many more! The U.S. Olympic committee says that the U.S. is taking their most diverse team ever to the winter games.
