    Foreign media outlets continue to speak highly of the information and communication technology (ICT) showcased in the 2018 Winter Olympics. 

    Foreign media in particular praised the latest technology featured in the 2018 Winter Olympics such as 5G, robotics and virtual reality. 

    CNN of the U.S. said in its article titled “5G is helping make Pyeongchang the most high-tech Olympics ever” on Feb. 19 that “At the helm of it all is 5G, the wireless network technology that mobile carriers around the world have been racing to adopt.” The CNN article said that Pyeongchang “has emerged as a vital testing ground.”

    Another U.S. TV network, CBS, also said on Feb. 15 in its article “Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang are the highest-tech games yet” that, “While the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang are likely to be remembered for the diplomatic overtures between North and South Korea, the games should also go down as the most technologically advanced yet.” 

    The Le Figaro of France took a closer eye on robotics. In the article titled "2018 Olympic Games, technological showcase for South Korea" dated on Feb 12, the Le Figaro said, "The Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang is a golden opportunity for South Korea to strengthen the image of the country as a leader in innovation with the rest of the world."

    The article also said that "During the Games, robots are ubiquitous. they welcome, guide and inform visitors, clean, deliveries, and service at the table." 

    Many other media outlets also continue to report the state-of-the-art technology of the 2018 Winter Olympics. One of such is the Radio France Internationale which focused on the 5G technology used to identify and fight against wild boars. The Clarin, an Argentinean daily, also dubbed the PyeongChang Olympics as "the most technological Games in history."
