Suara.com – North Korea is suspended by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) until the end of 2022, meaning it will miss the Beijing Winter Olympics, for not sending a team to the last Tokyo Olympics.
“The National Olympic Committee of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is suspended until the end of 2022 as a result of its unilateral decision not to participate (at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics),” said IOC President Thomas Bach.

Even so, Bach said the IOC reserves the right to make a decision on any North Korean athletes who qualify for Beijing 2022 and reconsider the duration of the country’s suspension.
