Hello and welcome to Sportskeeda's live coverage of the Winter Olympic Games.

Skiier Jagdish Singh will be taking part in his first ever Olympics when he participates in men's 15 Km freestyle cross-country skiing. He is the only Indian athlete apart from luger Shiva Keshavan to qualify for this edition of the Games.

Coming into the Games,  Jagdish was caught in a tussle between the Winter Games Federation of India and his employers, the Indian Army, over who will go along as his coach because of which his departure for South Korea was delayed. Finally, the issue was resolved and Nadeem Iqbal, who himself took part in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, was named as the coach. Eventually, Jagdish could reach Pyeongchang just in time for the Opening Ceremony.

Today's race starts at 11.30 am IST with Jagdish's start time scheduled to be 12.28 pm. Stay tuned for all live updates.
