Unified Korea is more than political symbol: Int. Olympic Committee President

Pyeongchang (South Korea), Feb 07 (ANI): International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said on Wednesday said that a unified women's ice hockey team from North and South Korea competing at the Pyeongchang Olympics is not just political window-dressing. "With the unified ice hockey team where at the beginning there were great concerns, then the athletes from DPRK (North Korea) two or three days afterwards they were celebrating together the birthday, one of these players, then they say the team is coming together and there I really believe in the Olympic spirit and it will be these athletes finally and many, many million other people, they will believe in this gesture and the athletes are going to show it." Bach said.
