Berlin (dpa) - North and South Korea could form a joint four-man bobsleigh team to test the track at next month‘s Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, the ruling body IBSF said late Thursday.

A statement said that IBSF president Ivo Ferriani and his deputy Darrin Steele were in the process of setting up such a test team ahead of the February 24 and 25 competition in South Korea, and both would also train these athletes.

The IBSF said the pilot and one push athlete would come from South Korea, and the other two push athletes from the North.

"Bobsleigh is a team sport like no other. The athletes must trust each other and cooperate perfectly in the narrowest of spaces. A mixed bobsleigh team would bring the athletes of both countries really close together," Ferriani said.

North Korea agreed at first talks since 2015 between the two nations that it would send athletes and officials to the February 9-25 Games.

The Koreas are to march together at the opening ceremony and form a joint women‘s ice hockey team. Olympic organizing committee (POCOG) chief Lee Hee Beom said Thursday that North Korean athletes could also compete in figure skating, alpine and cross-country skiing.

International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach has said the door remains open for North Koreans to participate, with details to be discussed at a meeting Saturday which brings together the IOC, POCOG, the heads of both Korean national Olympic Committees and their respective IOC members.
