PyeongChang, South Korea– Let the Games Begin!

The 2018 Winter Olympics are officially underway after the opening ceremonies!

The competition began a day earlier, but it isn’t official until you see the parade of nations and the Olympic flame finally making its way into the host city’s areana and lights the official cauldron that burns the duration of the event.
