"I think there was just some miscommunication there", he said.

Some 25 minutes later, Sanders walked back her "no decision" comment, saying via Twitter, "The U.S. looks forward to participating in the Winter Olympics in South Korea".

Technology will be a key factor during the Olympic and Paralympics Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 in South Korea, where thousands of fans and athletes will be able to experience a quicker way of paying for their purchases with wearable payment devices such as payment-enabled gloves, commemorative stickers, Olympic Winter Games pins or a decal on their mobile phones.

The International Olympic Committee and the White House did not immediately return CNN's request for further comment on who is responsible for deciding whether athletes will attend.

Asked about whether the reason is security concerns, Sanders said "absolutely", and suggested President Donald Trump may make the final decision. "We're going to take a team to Pyeongchang unless it's physically impossible or legally impossible".

The gloves, an indispensable accessory with the average winter temperature in PyeongChang at minus 4.8 C (23 F); the decal, very slim and with flexible adhesive, and the traditional commemorative Olympic pin, with eight different designs, are all provided with NFC (near field communication) technology and were the centre of attention at the NY event on Thursday.

"We were obviously a little bit surprised, but not at all surprised when at the end of the day, I think, there was just some miscommunication there rather than anything that was meant to be substantive", said Scott Blackmun, the USOC chief executive officer, on Friday. We support their efforts to ensure that a safe and successful winter games will take place.

USA Today reported that as part of the USOC's continuing preparation to compete in Pyeongchang it has been in contact with the state department and law enforcement officials and met in August with the four-star general in charge of U.S forces in South Korea. "We look forward to cheering on @TeamUSA at #PyeongChang2018".

"I recall prior to the 2014 games in Sochi, there was a tremendous amount of apprehension about security issues related to those Games", said Larry Probst, USOC chairman. "We plan on supporting two full delegations in Pyeongchang". Obviously in Korea, we're concerned about the global tensions.
