White House 'looks forward' to Winter Olympics

Pyeongchang 2018 have signed a sponsorship deal with German-based company Bauerfeind

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said the prospect of U.S. athletes participating in February was an "open question".

On 29 November, North Korea said it had successfully tested a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that could reach the whole of continental United States.

"I think that's an inner agency process but ultimately the President would certainly weigh in but again, that's certainly something that he would take into account and probably a number of the stakeholders that would be involved", she added. "We don't ever fear anything", Haley said.

".And certainly that is a flawless opportunity for all of them to go and do something they have worked so hard for".

Her tweet reads: "The U.S. looks forward to participating in the Winter Olympics in South Korea". "We have regular communication with the (United States Organizing Committee) and they always express their commitment of the athletes coming over to Pyeongchang".

In September, France indicated that it would not compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics if safety could not be guaranteed and the state of North Korea's atomic weapons program intensified.

This is not the first time the 2018 South Korean Winter Olympics have been a topic of contention.

76ers Finally Trade Jahlil Okafor
McConnell, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, and Jerryd Bayless were the main options 76ers' head coach Brett Brown chose to go with. The trade comes in after Okafor requested to be bought out from the 76ers but the team denied that request.


The announcement came shortly after she suggested in a press briefing that the America may not compete in Pyeongchang amid escalating tensions between the US and North Korea.

That capability was on display Wednesday when the USA flew a supersonic bomber over South Korea, part of a week-long slate of military exercises meant to send a strong warning to North Korea. If hostility with the the communist nation continues at its current trend, it might not be safe to send American athletes to the region.

"We are confident in the Pyeongchang Organising Committee's ability to deliver a great Games, and our hope is that the focus will be on our athletes". Despite those concerns, a spokesman for the U.S. Olympic Committee said Thursday morning there have been no discussions about skipping the Olympics.

That's sparked talk of war, a conflict that would inevitably impact North Korea's neighbor and the Olympic hosts, South Korea.

The comments came two days after Russian athletes were banned from attending the Games following a doping scandal.
