Taking on alpine skiing, ski jumping, and more, the babies all get gold medals for cuteness.

Keeping competitions free of manipulation
With competitions in full swing, sound measures are in place at PyeongChang 2018 to both prevent and deal swiftly with potential competition manipulation.
During the Games, an athlete or official cannot bet on any competition being staged in PyeongChang. Measures to tackle competition manipulation include a fully operational Joint Integrity Intelligence Unit in collaboration with experts from the PyeongChang 2018 Organising Committee, and a sophisticated Integrity Betting Intelligence System.
The IOC’s integrity eLearning programme has already been completed by several hundred athletes who are competing in PyeongChang. Featuring real-life scenarios, it teaches them the role they can play in protecting themselves and in preserving the integrity of their sport and competitions.
In addition, the IOC met with the Olympic Winter International Federations, including FIS, ahead of the Games to discuss sport- and discipline-specific risks and make available the IOC’s new BelieveInSport Campaign, aimed at raising awareness on the topic of competition manipulation.
