— Team USA (@TeamUSA) February 9, 2018
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.
This year the flame traveled on a 101-day journey.
The cauldron was lit by South Korean figure skater, Yuna Kim, who won gold in 2010.
American-designer Ralph Lauren once again designed the American Athletes official outfits for the Games.
Something new this year is the coat and parka have heating elements that will last up to 11 hours!
Enjoy some of the other spectacular sites that took place during the ceremonies.
The 2018 Games last through February 25 and can be seen here on KFOR.
