The medal target range announced on Tuesday was four to 10, with an expectation at least five would be delivered in Pyeongchang.

Located in the Mountainous Gangwon Province, some 111 miles east of Seoul, PyeongChang will host Asia's first winter games outside Japan and kick off an Asian Olympic cycle that reflects the region's growing influence on world sport.

UK Sport director of performance Chelsea Warr said: "One of the unique aspects of winter sport is its unpredictability".

In Sochi four years ago Team GB won four medals, their most successful in modern times. However, this is a particularly stretching target given the high risks, low margins for error across a range of events we have medal opportunities in, and in some events more unpredictable outdoor terrains that our athletes will need to skilfully navigate. "That's what makes it so exciting, but also very nerve-wracking".

Official confirmation from the International Olympic Committee is yet to be received.
