The UK cheer team took the biggest stage at the Winter Olympics on Sunday as they represented team USA at the closing ceremonies in Pyeongchang, South Korea. 

The routine lasted about a minute and-a-half and was performed outside. The team has been in Pyeongchang for the last week making appearance at events while showing their routine to sports fans in South Korea. 

The squad still has their competition to go before they return to Lexington, which will take place on Feb. 26 at 3 a.m. ET. The competition can be viewed on Korea Cheer’s Facebook page
