Paralympics North and South Korea to march separately at Paralympics

HOSTS South Korea and neighbours North Korea will march separately at tomorrow’s opening ceremony of the Winter Paralympics, the International Paralympic Committee announced today.

The nations marched together for the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics on February 9 and the respective National Paralympic Committees were given the option to do so again by the IPC but declined.

IPC president Andrew Parsons said: “Although we are disappointed, we respect the decision of the two NPCs who decided that marching separately would be better for both parties.”
