This Friday, the 23rd edition of the Winter Olympic Games kicked off in PyeongChang, South Korea. Most attention was focused on North and South Korean athletes marching together under a unified flag at the opening ceremony.

The political scenario also took center stage as the North Korean delegation is headed by Kim Yo-jong, sister of North Korea leader Kim Jong-Un. The North Korean government representative attended the opening and shook hands with the South Korean President Moon Jae-in. In the same venue, US Vice President Mike Pence was sitting a few feet away from Kim Yo Jong.

The 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games will be held until February 25; more than 100 events will be featured in 15 sports. Eight Latin American countries will participate at the Winter Olympics: Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
