Gallagher is convinced many will be having the same conversations when the Winter Paralympics start on Friday.

The Paralympics will run from March 9 to March 18.

Similarly to the Olympics ceremonies, colour and culture featured heavily throughout, with traditional Korean aspects combining with the new such as K-Pop music and dancing. Snowboarding will be expanded into a separate discipline for 2018, with 10 medal events this time, it is reported.

"We're lucky because we've got such an incredibly strong team", she said before the ceremony. "We're not Austria. But when the Olympics were on everybody was talking about what they'd just seen on the BBC".

In men's snowboarding, the three USA men who swept the podium in 2014 all return.

U.S. snowboarder Brenna Huckaby, who has a prosthetic leg, was the first female para-athlete to model a swimsuit for the United States magazine Sports Illustrated.

It was announced yesterday that the National Paralympic Committees (NPCs) North and South Korea will march separately at today's Opening Ceremony of the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Paralympic Games, where Bach will be among those in attendance.

Paralympics GB star Kelly Gallagher is in Pyeongchang for her third Winter Games and has a simple message for the British public: Don't tell me we're not a winter sports nation.

There are 567 athletes at the Games competing in 80 medal events across six sports: alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, ice hockey, snowboard and wheelchair curling. Moon was invited to do the official declaration by IPC President Andrew Parsons, who followed Pyeongchang 2018 counterpart Lee Hee-beom in delivering a speech. A second artistic segment, entitled Possible Dreams, then took centre stage and was based around Sojeong, a girl with a visual impairment.
