Both of the alpine skiing events scheduled for the opening three days of the Games have now been postponed because of high winds

Ten other North Korean athletes will also be participating in the Winter Games under their own flags, including short-track speed skating, figure skating, alpine skating and cross-country skiing. Behind Pence was the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. And it is the United States whose aggressive response and unabiding commitment to a denuclearized North Korea have been ratcheting up the rhetoric in recent months and, some say, grooming the world for war.

It is now unclear how the unidentified Korean man was able to jump the barriers and get onto the ice chute but local police in Pyeongchang, the South Korean resort where the two week tournament is held, say they are investigating. At Friday's opening ceremony, for example, Moon shook hands with Jong, as Pence, sitting merely feet away, looked stone faced, never acknowledging the North Korean delegation.

The Olympic Athletes from Russia entered the stadium dressed in white, though the Russian flag did make an appearance among a group of defiant fans.

Moon met Kim Yo Jong and the North's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong Nam for talks and lunch at the Blue House on Saturday.

All Olympics opening ceremonies are about optics, about intense visuals - and often about meticulously calibrated pyrotechnics in angry colors created to leave a lasting impression on eyes and mind. But North Korea's record on human rights and the growing threat from its nuclear weapons program appeared out of mind.

"The grievances that the world has about North Korea are very legitimate".

As Min was expertly doing her routine, the top of her dress decided that it would be the flawless time to disconnect in the back. Though Min and Gamelin are both American-born, Min said the South Korean crowd helped them.

She verbally conveyed Kim's invitation to Moon "to visit the North at his most convenient time", he added.

USA officials have been urging South Korea to be cautious in its rapprochement with the North.

South Korea showed off its technical expertise with a dazzling gala opening ceremony on Friday which included state-of-the-art special effects and augmented reality to add extra impact for TV viewers. As ever, its front page lead story was on the activities of leader Kim Jong Un - in this instance, being given a gift by Zimbabwe's visiting air force commander.

Pence avoided the North Korean official entirely.

Lizzy Yarnold carried Great Britain's flag, while Russian athletes came in under the neutral Olympic flag.
