Moreover, Kim also acknowledged the tough circumstances the athletes are in. Not to forget that the Olympics were supposed to happen last year. And now with this year, there are several restrictions because of the COVID-19 pandemic and there won’t be any fans either.

“And I can only imagine what a crazy, you know, year it’s been with you guys thinking that you guys were gonna compete last year, and with all the changes and all of the COVID restrictions, I can only imagine how challenging this time is. So I just want you to know everyone back at home, loves you guys so much for supporting you we’re cheering for you. Go Team USA,” Kim added.
