"What we will do is make sure that we are taking every precaution possible to make sure that they're safe and to know about everything that's going on around them".
CEO Scott Blackmun spoke Friday after a board meeting, and a day after members of the Trump administration cast doubt over whether the USA would field a team at the Olympics in February. Amid concerned comments from US government officials and lawmakers regarding the political situation in Korea, Blackmun said there's no such anxiety within the Olympic movement.
"I think there was just some miscommunication there rather than anything meant to be substantive or send a message". While White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders initially backed Ambassador's Haley's comments, saying a decision will not be made until a later date, she later tweeted an update, seemingly backtracking on those remarks.
"We were obviously a little bit surprised but not at all surprised at the end of the day", Blackmun said. "It got our attention, but all's well that ends well".
While North Korea has conducted several intercontinental ballistic missile tests - most recently last week, one that showed the ability to deliver a nuclear warhead as far as Washington, D.C. - Olympic officials continually have downplayed any security concerns related to these Winter Games.
Two of America's best-known skiers, Lindsey Vonn and Julia Mancuso, said Friday they weren't concerned.
Technology will be a key factor during the Olympic and Paralympics Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 in South Korea, where thousands of fans and athletes will be able to experience a quicker way of paying for their purchases with wearable payment devices such as payment-enabled gloves, commemorative stickers, Olympic Winter Games pins or a decal on their mobile phones. "If something is going to happen, none of us can control it anyway".
"I think ultimately the president would certainly weigh in, Sanders said".
Technically, the decision about whether to participate in the Olympics rests with the USOC and the individual athletes.
In a statement issued in response to comments from United States ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, USOC said its plans to send full delegations to Pyeongchang remained unchanged.
Tensions with the USA have ratcheted up after a series of North Korean missile tests.
