The Olympic rings that follow US athletes home from the games

Eight teams, from universities and private companies, entered skiing robots into the competition, with a US$10,000 prize up for grabs for the fastest bot to navigate its way around five flags on a short descent. I've been glued to the tube for years when the ski jump comes on, watching daredevils fly through the sky in an event that makes you wonder how it ever started.

Earlier in the day, speed skater Håvard Holmefjord Lorentzen from Bergen had thrilled fans back home with his powerful performance in the 500-meter race. Japan conceded the game after the South Koreans stole three points in the eighth end.

Billed at the world's first robot ski tournament, the event was hosted in the ski resort of Hoengseong, on the sidelines of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

The pair ranked 13th out of 16 teams, outperforming South Korean pair Kim Kyu-eun and Kam Alex Kang-chan. Lee will turn 30-years-old in March, so he could return to defend South Korea's title in 2022 with Kim and Chung. "My teammates helped me to fix my mistakes, which I'm really thankful (for)", Chung said to the media.
