Well that was fun. Team USA made a splash at the opening ceremonies of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in South Korea on Friday, marching in the Parade of Nations to "Gangnam Style," the 2012 hit from Korean artist PSY. (See a clip here.) Though several other countries walked to the same tune, American athletes stood out in other ways. For one, USA's 242 athletes make up the largest contingent "for any country at any Winter Games," reports the New York Times. For another, they wore what some thought were "horrible" gloves. Despite the cold, the athletes hardly needed them since their Ralph Lauren jackets were heated, per USA Today, which shows off photos of other athletes who stood out. (Kim Jong Un's sister is there.)
