SEOUL, Feb. 1 (Yonhap) — Ten North Korean Olympic athletes are set to travel to South Korea aboard a South Korean chartered plane Thursday, together with the South’s skiers who will come home after a two-day joint ski training in the North.

The Asiana Airlines jet will carry the North’s 32-member delegation, including the athletes, when it brings home a South Korean delegation after inter-Korean ski exercises that began Wednesday, according to Seoul’s unification ministry.

The athletes include those in the disciplines of alpine and cross-country skiing, as well as figure and short-track skating. Twelve women’s ice hockey players already have been in the South for training as the Koreas formed a unified women’s hockey team for the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

The North will send a 46-member delegation, including 22 athletes, to the Feb. 9-25 Winter Games in the South.

Meanwhile, the two Koreas’ skiers will have their second day of training at the Masikryong Ski Resort, located on the outskirts of the eastern city of Wonsan, according to Seoul officials.

The South’s 45-member delegation, including two dozen non-Olympic skiers, arrived at the resort a day earlier, a some 45-minute drive from Kalma Airport, a former military airfield.

The Koreas’ skiers will hold alpine skiing friendly matches and combined training in cross-country skiing in the morning, according to the ministry.

It marks the first time that the two Koreas’ athletes are holding joint training without forming a unified team for international sports events, it said.

    Those things are fake forged in your brains feel similar as realities in real world by ‘computers now controled by evils’. They may cause same feelings, but they do not have same effects.
    If you are in the real world ,you will know how those things are generated. But ,you are in a fake world, you can not understand those.
    The only way to go back to your lives in the real world is having killed social evils and shut down evils-controled ‘computers’.
    The so-called ‘universe’ and ‘earth as a planet’ are fake. Social evil’s intention of doing these criminals is to make people like you do harming criminals each other like evils have done . And rewards of criminals you do are fake things and artifact feelings and a bad fake life.
    Social evils can do these criminals does not mean that they have big talents. On the contrary, the ‘computers’ used by social evils doing these criminals were stolen by social evil from the previous human-being that killed by social evil.
    In the real world, there is only one truth that is the human hierarchy order. However,in fake ‘worlds’, there are a lot of so-called principles and theories, but those principles are generated by ‘evil-controled computers’. And also your fake ‘life ,abilities, every contradiction and conflict ‘ were falsely set and fixed when you were born in fake worlds by social evils used civilization that they had stolen from previous human.
