During the talks, which are the first to take place between the North and South in more than two years, South Korea's second vice-minister for tradition, sports activities and tourism brought up the possibility of combining the women's ice hockey team.

The International Olympic Committee is expected to extend several "wild card" spots to North Korean athletes so they can compete at the Olympics without qualifying, but it's not known if that would apply to individual athletes or an entire team.
