The opening ceremony for the Winter Olympics starts tonight in South Korea. Lots of athletes who live or train in Utah will be there representing the US, including Abby Ringquist from Park City. She'll be competing in the women’s ski jump. KUER's Erik Neumann asked Ringquist how she’s feeling about her Olympics debut after landing in South Korea.
