Team Korea moves into Olympic Village two days before start of Games Updated: 2014-02-05 16:58:28 KST

The Sochi Winter Olympics don't officially start until Friday, but the athletes and main participants are already moving in.
The symbol of the Games, the Olympic flame, arrived in Sochi on Wednesday after traveling some 65-thousand kilometers in the hands of 14-thousand torch-bearers, the longest stretch in Olympic history.
We still don't know who the final torch-bearer will be, but we do know the Olympic Cauldron will be set at the main stadium on Friday evening during the opening ceremony.
As for Team Korea, they are holding a welcoming ceremony at the Olympic Village as we speak.
The 71 South Korean athletes in competition will be working collectively to get Team Korea in the top 10 in the medal count for the third consecutive Winter Games.
