February 2018 will be a big month for those at the top of their game.  With the 2018 Winter Olympics set to take place February 9 -25 in Pyeong Chang, South Korea, the world’s elite athletes will compete for a record 102 medals in 15 disciplines, including headline sports such as skiing, bobsledding, figure skating and ice hockey – to name a few.
