The 2018 Winter Paralympics get underway today in PyeongChang, South Korea.  Athletes from all over the world will compete in various winter sports through March 18th.  It's the first time the Paralympics have been held in South Korea.  The Winter Olympics were just held there last month.  PyeongChang Olympic Stadium is hosting the Opening and Closing Ceremonies for the Paralympics.  When the Games are over, the stadium will be torn down. 

Organizers say upkeep for the $110,000,000 venue after the Games isn't practical.
