The Korean squad have been written off as contenders in the Olympic women's tournament.

In speed skating, the racer to watch is Dutchwoman Ireen Wust, hoping to repeat her victories in 2006 and 2014 with a win in the women's 3000m.

Kalla has now equalled canoeist Agneta Andersson as the Swedish woman with the most Olympic gold medals, with three.

Her collection includes three gold medals from Vancouver 2010 and three from Sochi 2014.
