After a long drought four years since the Sochi Winter Olympics in Russia, the snow and ice sports enthusiasts have landed in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and are ready to compete against some of the best athletes across the globe. The United States have sent a total delegations of 244 athletes to this year’s Winter Olympic — the largest U.S. contingent to date.
The North and South Korea marched into this year’s Winter Olympic opening ceremony under the same flag. The PyeongChang Olympic Stadium was erected without a roof and does not contain a central heating system. The weather in PyeongChang could be as low as -13.8 Celcius, with wind chill, during the Winter Olympic, the forecasters said. The Winter Olympics organizers handed out blankets and heating pads to audiences.
The two-week Winter Olympic games will kick off with the highly anticipated Opening Ceremony. From the traditional Parade of Nations, to the very detailed choreographed performances, the Opening Ceremony is a several-hour event filled with once in a a blue moon moments.
Team USA has opted Erin Hamlin to lead the U.S. Winter Olympic athletes in the Parade of Nations. This will be Hamlin’s fourth Winter Olympic Games.
Following the Parade of Nations, several Winter Olympic traditions will be executed, including: South Korea’s head of state declaring the much awaited Winter Olympic games open, the Olympic flag being raised, Olympic oaths taken by an athlete, judge and coach.
Moreover, the Opening Ceremony will then continue with the torch relay and, naturally, a grand fireworks display to wrap out the first day of the Olympic.
