Vonn went on to say she would not accept an invitation to the White House, which is a statement Trump has heard before from players in both the National Football League and NBA. She added that she would not visit the White House if she won.

It began with Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, telling Fox News late Wednesday that "there's an open question" about whether American athletes would go to the February 9-25 Winter Games in the city of Pyeongchang.

The White House did not return CNN's request for further comment on who is responsible for deciding whether athletes will attend.

U.S. President Donald Trump signaled his willingness to send part of his family to the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics during his summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Seoul last month, a source here said Friday.

"Right, our athletes are invited to participate under the neutral flag, but nobody can limit fans in using the national flag, and we always can support our team", the designer told TASS.

But when asked if it's a "done deal" that U.S. athletes will be able to attend the Olympics, Haley said: "There's an open question". "I think there was just some miscommunication there rather than anything meant to be substantive or send a message". The IOC accused Russian Federation of systematic abuse of anti-doping rules at various sporting events, including the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
