Adam Rippon boycotts Team USA’s White House visit

The first openly gay, Adam Rippon, said he would boycott Team USA’s visit to the White House following the Olympic Winter Games 2018, Independent stated.

Adam Rippon is not to support Trump administration, thus he refused to visit the main US building.

“I don’t think somebody like me would be welcome there. I know what it’s like to go into a room and feel like you’re not wanted there,” Rippon expressed his opinion about the visit to White House.

Chloe Kim won churros

Recently, Kim has stated that she was dreaming to eat as much of junk food as she could and demanded some ice-cream.

Also, she asked for churros, which appears to be her favorite food:

And here you go!  On NBC’s Today show, Kim was pleased with the churros she was so hoping to get.

Moreover, Kim was given a churro ice cream sandwich from celebrity chef David Chang. What else can you dream about?

South Korea to pay for North’s delegation

The 2.86bn Korean won ($2.64m) will come from the South’s unification ministry budget.

400-people North Korean delegation and 22 athletes traveled to PyeongChang for the Olympics 2018. The political delegation trip will be paid by the South Korean government.

The preparation of North Korea to visit its sister was quite intense as a lot of “war-kind” predictions had been made by the analytics and social media.

However, the cost of hosting of sportsmen will be paid by International Olympic Committee.
