Two Portuguese athletes qualify to compete at Winter Olympics



Portugal will have athletes in two different sports categories at the Winter Olympics for the first time, and hopes are others will also qualify.

The Winter Olympics are being staged in South Korea over a 17-day period starting on the 9th of February.

The last occasion Portugal sent over more than single athlete was at the Calgary Olympics in bobsleigh.

During the 1988 Olympics, the Portuguese team competed against the famous Jamaican bobsled team.

Portugal ended last, while the popular Cool Runnings team failed to finish in the final.
