Several dozen Poles, among them the country's top figure ice skaters, bobsledders and cross-country skiers, also met presidential aide Krzysztof Szczerski, Polish Ambassador to South Korea Piotr Ostaszewski, Sports Minister Witold Bańka and Polish Olympic Committee chief Andrzej Kraśnicki.
“The president told competitors that he was cheering for them and wished them new personal bests,” the Polish Olympic team's spokesman, Henryk Urbaś, said.
“The presidential couple said they were happy to be in Pyeongchang and were impressed by the mood,” Urbaś added.
The Polish first couple watched the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics from the stands at Pyeongchang on Friday and are set to watch ski jumpers, including Poland's Kamil Stoch, a gold medal winner at the Sochi games, in flight on Saturday. (vb)
