It's So Cold in Pyeongchang, Skis Are Warping


When cold weather becomes a main topic at the Winter Olympics, it’s safe to say that frigid temperatures have made an impression. That’s the case in Pyeongchang, where brutal cold and high winds have been a common theme for both the media and for athletes.

Athletes and the media in Pyeongchang are dealing with a big freeze that doesn’t involve US-North Korean relations, NPRreports.

With temperatures around freezing in the daytime and down to minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit at night, this is on course to be the coldest Winter Olympics in decades.

The freezing temperatures are warping skis and playing havoc with electronic equipment.
