US Figure Skater Adam Rippon's Interview Is Going Viral

In landing the triple axel, Nagasu is the third woman in the history of Olympics competition to do it at the games. As a child, she participated in numerous competitions. But she kept whatever sour feelings she had to herself and ultimately even said yes, the federation's executives probably made the right decision.

The Shib Sibs and the Knierims also skated the short program, along with Nathan Chen and Bradie Tennell. Russian Mikhail Kolyada received a score of 173.57 and Rippon had the third-highest mark with 172.98. Rippon replaced US champion Nathan Chen and had a fluid and steady routine.

Adam Rippon said he would be prepared to meet US Vice President Mike Pence after making history on Monday when he became the first openly gay US man to compete at a Winter Games. The American figure skater also had some wondering,"Wait, is that a giant "USA" tattoo on her inner thigh?"

He did play it safe by substituting a double axel for the quadruple lutz that usually opens his program, mostly because missing the jump can be disruptive.

Rippon exudes confidence and he backed it up on the world stage.

Rippon skated a squeaky-clean program with only one minor glitch and very almost outpointed Russia's Mikhail Kolyada.

Rippon's routine was graceful and left commentators Jonny Weir and Tara Lipinski speechless.

"This might be my first Olympics, but it's not my first rodeo", Rippon said.

Mirai completed the move during the free skate portion of the figure skating team event on Monday morning (February 12) in PyeongChang, South Korea.

2014 gold medalist and six-time U.S. Champion Meryl Davis chimed in.

As Nagasu skated, she could hear Scimeca-Knierim's voice.

In the end, the US team got just about the best result it could have hoped for. Rippon stands taller than ever. For her team's collective efforts, they were able to capture bronze medals for Team USA. But figure skating's scoring system rewards difficulty.
