South Korea has rejected Pyongyang's suggestion that a North Korean ski resort could be used for events at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

US ATHLETES TO WATCH

The Winter Olympics in Sochi are just weeks away. See which American athletes to watch as we count down to the Games.

The organizing committee for the games in Pyeongchang says that North Korea's offer is unrealistic.

South Korea won the bid to host the games in 2011 after two failed attempts in 2003 and 2007.

The committee's statement on Wednesday comes after a North Korean IOC official told the Voice of America broadcaster on Tuesday that it is possible to use the North Korean ski resort for Olympic events when it's completed.
