Ivanka visited Olympic Sliding Centre in PyeongChang, Gangwon Province, to watch the four-man bobsleigh event on the last day of the 23rd Winter Olympics. There were two American teams in the competition -- one piloted by Nick Cunningham and another led by Justin Olsen, but neither made it to podium.

Ivanka was seen applauding during U.S. teams' races, as well as taking photos with fans around her, though she was heavily surrounded by security guards.

It wasn't the first time that Ivanka visited an Olympic venue. She previously watched the men's big air finals at Alpensia Ski Jumping Centre in PyeongChang and the men's curling final match at Gangneung Curling Centre in eastern coastal city of Gangneung on Saturday.

The U.S. first daughter arrived in Korea on Friday for a four-day visit to lead Washington's delegation to the closing ceremony of the quadrennial games, which is scheduled for later Sunday.
