Nikki Haley thinks U.S. athletes could skip the Olympics

Nikki Haley hinted on Wednesday that America's Olympic athletes might not participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics because of a potential volatile situation with North Korea.

On 29 November, North Korea said it had successfully tested a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that could reach the whole of continental United States.

Answering a question about uncertainty surrounding the participation of USA athletes in the global sports event held on the Korean Peninsula, she said Washington would continue monitoring the situation in the region in order to ensure protection of its athletes.

When asked to clarify Haley's comments on Thursday at the regular White House press briefing, Sanders initially said that "no official decision has been made" about participation and the final decision would be made closer to the Games.

Jeremy Pruitt set to cash in as Tennessee coach
Tennessee is hiring Pruitt after their search failed to land big names such as Gary Patterson, Chris Petersen and Mike Gundy . Under Pruitt, Alabama ranked No. 1 nationally in scoring defense, No. 1 in yards per play and No. 2 in total defense in 2017.

"It's an inter-agency process but I think ultimately, the president would certainly weigh in", Sanders said.

"What we will do is make sure that we are taking every precaution possible, to make sure that they are safe". "We don't ever fear anything, we live our lives", Haley said, as reported by CNN.

The International Olympic Committee banned the entire Russian Olympic team from the games earlier this week over a doping scandal.

A U.S. Olympic Committee spokesman has previously said that staging such a sports spectacle can be a challenge for any host city, which must contend with an influx of worldwide visitors. Americans are wondering whether U.S. athletes will be safe in light of hostility from North Korea.

It's possible that these results are at least slightly skewed, and this preliminary research is by no means a well-accepted fact. The majority of these studies included only people without heart disease and tracked participants for ten years or more .

"There is full support from the United Nations, very positive message coming out of the assembly", said Christophe Dubi, the executive director of the Olympic Games.

The Winter Olympics are due to be held from February 9-25 in Pyeongchang.

But despite Haley's claims that these are ongoing conversations, United States Olympic Committee spokesman Mark Jones told The New York Times that there have been no discussions about American attendance in Pyeongchang.

Winless Browns fire VP Sashi Brown
While Brown was done in by the team's lack of success, Jackson said that he did not doubt that he'd return despite a 1-27 mark. Brown's firing didn't cause any uproar among Cleveland's players, some of whom have been hardened by the constant turnover.
