From what I've read the only actual combined team was the women's ice hockey team and to date have only played two games. One was a warm up game with someone or other but I do remember they lost 3-1 which was hardly of great surprise as they had only practised together for a few days and given the language barrier I would think practice would have been very difficult! The only game I think they have played in the Olympics was a thrashing by Switzerland 8-0.
I've absolutely no idea if the ice hockey is straight knock-out or whether it's the same as football and there are group stages? I also believe there are North Korean Olympians competing as individuals.
The only bits of these Olympics I have watched are on News clips as I've had zero interest to be honest.

Must admit like you I've only caught snippets on the news as I'm not really interested in the Olympics; not to mention recording as much as I do there is so much else to watch 😊

It was against Sweden if I remember.
I forgot to mention in my earlier post taht I do enjoy also watching bobsleigh, luge and skeleton. It's the figure skating, and all the snowboard and slopestyle stuff I don't like.
I do like another event I've not seen yet. That skiing one with all the bumps Mogul skiing I think it's called.
I don't think it's an olympic event, but the world cup race where they race each other in the slalom is pretty cool.
