The event, whose theme revolves around promoting peace, started with the arrival of a northern guest, Kim Yo Jong, younger sister of North Korea's supreme leader Kim Jong Un. The team USA currently stands at rank fourth with 21 medals in total.

Earlier, Ivanka watched American Kyle Mack win a silver medal in the men's snowboarding jump final. She is also scheduled to attend the closing ceremony.
