A British bobsledder will miss the Winter Olympics after suffering a stroke.

"We know that our goals for any Games are always ambitious", said UK Sport director of performance Chelsea Warr.

The six they won in Sochi was their highest total for 30 years and second most ever at a Games. UK Sport has forecast 6-12 medals at the Winter Paralympics, which follows in March.

Britain is not renowned as a winter sports nation.

Medals for the Paralympic games are similar to the Olympic design but with raised repeating patterns in the medal and braille lettering.

However, that is poised to rise to five as the disqualification of two Russian sleds following the uncovering of systematic doping means Britain's four-man bobsleigh team, led by pilot John Jackson, is in line to be promoted from fifth to third.

Yarnold has struggled for form this season.

And in the event that you want to look like a victor - without going through the whole hassle of training, traveling and actually competing - you're in luck; consumer versions of the Team USA Medal Stand Collection will be available starting January 15 at nike.com and select retailers.

NBC and Intel also said that viewers will also be able to "fly through the Olympic world, tour Olympic venues and different areas throughout Korea".

South Korea and North Korea are talking for the first time in a while.
