(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – The opening ceremonies of the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea will be televised worldwide Friday evening.

Lawrenceburg native Nick Goepper will be among the U.S. athletes walking in the parade in PyeongChang.

Early Friday morning, Goepper tweeted a photo of he and some fellow American skiers on the slopes in South Korea.

Goepper will go for gold in men’s ski slopestyle competition on Sunday, February 18. If you want to catch the competition live on television, and not on your DVR, you’ll have to stay up until about 12:11 a.m. Eastern Time that day. Watch on NBC or NBCOlympics.com.

Goepper earned bronze at his first winter games in Russia in 2014. Ski slopestyle was new to the Olympics that year.
