    The King of Biathlon cheerleading in Pyeongchang

    PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) - The king is not dead, he's just testing skis and being the best cheerleader he can be for his wife. It wasn't by choice, mind you. Ole Einar Bjoerndalen, who is known in his sport as the "king of the biathlon," would rather be participating in the Pyeongchang Games than watching them. The Norwegian legend who has won 13 medals in the Winter Games - more than any man in history - didn't qualify for his seventh Olympics.

    Hands off? Players take precautions because of norovirus

    GANGNEUNG, South Korea (AP) - One of hockey's most time-honored traditions is in danger of not happening at the Olympics.
