Friday, February 09, 2018
As is Olympic tradition, Greece began the parade of athletes into Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium.
Greece — which hosted the first modern Olympic games in 1896 — is being followed by the other countries in alphabetical order according to the Korean alphabet.
The teams are led by a placard bearer dressed in snowflake decorations. The music is various Korean pop songs that range from the 1950s to present day hits. There will be 13 songs played while the athletes march into the stadium.
South Korean athletes who have represented the country in different sports carried the flag around the stadium and then the traditional guard of honor raised the flag. The Rainbow Choir, which consists of 40 children, sang the national anthem
