A cold remedy is the welcome prescription and the next two Winter Olympics, Scott says, are well-placed weather-wise to ensure better competitive conditions on the snow and ice for cold-medal sports.

A total in the range of six to 11 medals is forecast for Paralympic skiing and snowboard along with an additional one in wheelchair curling.

The funding body is confident that a vast increase in investment over the four-year cycle from £14m to £32m will result in the best ever Winter Games for the country's Olympians and the most successful in 30 years for its Paralympians.

Britain is not renowned as a winter sports nation.

Christie was disqualified three times in Sochi, but has since won numerous World Championship medals, including two golds in 2017.

There are also multiple medal opportunities across park and pipe and alpine.

PyeongChang is ready to welcome the world for the Olympics and Paralympics. "Louder" was written and composed by Taeyang, according to the official Twitter account of the Games, and was performed for the first time during the Olympic Torch Relay Ceremony.

The medal target announcement was made at the Korean Cultural Centre UK in central London.
