[REUTERS] – Short track powerhouse South Korea and speed skating masters the Netherlands have agreed to share expertise in the winter sports to boost their medal hopes at the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics.

The Korea Skating Union (KSU) said on Tuesday it had signed the agreement with its Dutch counterpart (KNSB) at South Korea’s presidential office.

In a statement, the KSU said the idea had first been floated at the Sochi Olympics, where the Dutch won eight of the 12 speed skating gold medals up for grabs.

South Korea have won 21 of the 48 golds in short track since it became a medal sport at the 1992 Games.  [READ MORE]
