South Korean bobsledders will try to add a new chapter to their Cinderella story, as the two-man competition opens on Sunday.

South Korea made its Olympic bobsleigh debut in Vancouver four years ago, with just one team in the four-man event in action.

This year, pilots Won Yun-jong and Kim Dong-hyun have qualified for both the two-man and the four-man events. It's a remarkable progress for a country that doesn't even have a proper track.

Won led his two-man team to the overall North American Cup title this season, powered by two victories in January in Lake Placid. Kim's two-man team finished runner-up in the overall standings.

The following is the list of events for South Korean athletes on Sunday. All times are local.

- Alpine skiing (Rosa Khutor Alpine Center)
Men's Super-G (11 a.m.)

- Bobsleigh (Sanki Sliding Center)
Two-man heat 1 (8:15 p.m.)
Two-man heat 2 (9:50 p.m.)

- Curling (Ice Cube Curling Center)
Women's round robin match vs. Denmark (2 p.m.)

- Speed skating (Adler Arena Skating Center)
Ladies' 1,500m (5:30 p.m.)
