North Korea's 'army of beauties' takes centre stage at Olympics

11 Febrero 2018

The president has repeatedly threatened to bomb North Korea and derisively refers to Kim as "Little Rocket Man".

Hamlin said in a tweet that she is "incredibly proud to have the privilege of leading every amazing Team USA athlete into that stadium". The combined athletes created a symbol of good will between the two Koreas that have been divided for over 70 years.

A player from Switzerland is being challenged by Korean hockey players Kim Se-rin and Randi Heesoo Griffin.

Even so, there's also cautious optimism, or curiosity at least. Spokesman Mark Adams called it an "impromptu logistical change" and did not say whether it was related to the Wi-Fi and internet outage. The U.S. and the North should quickly resume dialogue, he said.

I absolutely love it, and it is a firm rule in my house that if the TV is on, we are watching Olympic events of some kind.

Despite threatening to bomb each other off the face of the earth, North Korean ruler Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump appeared to be hanging out with each other in downtown Seoul on Friday.

"What next? We are waiting for the [court's] motivation", he continued. Kim was seen wearing a rosary ring, which her fans had previously mistaken for an engagement ring, during her silver-medal performance at the 2014 Sochi Games.

"It didn't affect the opening ceremony", Park said.

However, the result mattered less than the political symbolism as around 200 of North Korea's famed "army of beauties" charmed a crowd of 3,600 besotted locals with nostalgic oldies - and even broke out a Mexican wave. Ask a young South Korean what they want, assuming that North Korea would never give up its nuclear weapons without a war, and they think for a second.

Kim Yo Jong, 30, is the first member of North Korea's ruling family to visit the South since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.

"But I haven't been to Pyongyang", Moon said, according to comments provided by his office.

That is understandable, but the context is impossible to ignore.

Earlier, Sweden's Charlotte Kalla won the first title of the Games in the women's skiathlon, followed by Germany's Laura Dahlmeier who triumphed in the women's 7,500m sprint biathlon.

Team competition in figure skating continues on NBC with the short dance and the women's short program. Switzerland defeated Korea 8-0.

While organisers wouldn't comment on the possibility that an attack was behind the shutdown, experts believe disrupting the Games would be seen as a coup for many hackers.

On his plane home, Pence insisted to reporters that there's "no daylight" among the United States, South Korea and Japan on the need to keep the pressure on North Korea. There are eight different events (four for men, four for women), from 500m to the 5000m relay.

North Korea has steadfastly pursued its banned nuclear and ballistic missile programmes since its first successful test of an atomic bomb in 2006, as it looks to build a rocket capable of delivering a warhead to the US mainland.

"I left today's Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem", Pence said in a statement last year.

More importantly, the Olympics are a history that unites us.

Meanwhile, Pence, who was sent to PyongChang for the opening of the Winter Games, preceded his arrival there with a number of public appearances in Asia during which he criticized North Korea's diplomatic attempts as a ruse to "cloud the reality" of the regime. Pence carried a similar message.
