PyeongChang, South Korea -  The opening ceremony for the 2018 Winter Games is underway in South Korea.

Remsen native Olympian Erin Hamlin is the flag bearer for Team USA. The large U.S. contingent is one of the more enthusiastic groups, and Hamlin smiled broadly as she waved the flag.

This is Erin's fourth olympic games. She won the bronze medal in women's luge in 2014 in Sochi and she is a two-time world champion. Old Forge's Maddie Phaneuf is also part of team USA, and she's competing in the women's biathlon.

You can watch the opening ceremony live on WKTV NBC begining at 8 p.m. Friday.
