The two Koreas marched behind their own flags and Russia looked forward to a quick end to its ban over mass doping as the curtain fell on the engrossing Pyeongchang Winter Olympics Sunday. At a colorful and cold closing ceremony, Ivanka Trump sat near a blacklisted North Korean general but unlike at the games' opening, the North and South Korean athletes entered separately, waving their national flags. It was a fitting send-off for the games and for Bjoergen, 37, who completes her Olympic career with a record-breaking 15 medals and was one of the stars of the 16 days of competition.Russia sent 168 athletes to compete as neutrals after the country's national Olympic committee was banned for mass doping.The International Olympic Committee voted Sunday to keep Russia's suspension in place until the other 166 Russians are cleared of doping in Pyeongchang.
