A medalist now too, Adam Rippon embraces role at Olympics

Adjust Comment Print

Figure skater Adam Rippon made his Olympics debut at the 2018 Winter Olympics men's team free skate event on the final night of the team competition.

Olympic medal victor Adam Rippon just smacked down his haters and critics on Twitter in a perfectly balanced response. If I didn't feel comfortable to share my feelings and thoughts, I was able to go out on the ice and express them.

Gus Kenworthy and Adam Rippon, United States athletes in freestyle skiing and figure skating respectfully, shared a kiss on social media this weekend.

This Instagram post comes after Rippon recently declined to meet with Pence at the Olympics.

Rippon, now 28, had been skating for just over three years when he appeared on the channel's Newswatch 16 program.

A few hours later she confirmed the good news, writing to her more than two million followers: "You make me so proud!"

Rippon has joked he wouldn't be at the Olympics without his haters, and has been vocal about owning who he is and being proud of that (also, his awesome eyebrows).

His spat with Pence — Rippon said he had no interest in meeting the vice president when he visited the Olympics because of his record on gay rights — was a big story. Pence has denied supporting the practice, though his 2000 Senate campaign publicly supported "institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior". During the 2016 election campaign, however, Pence's spokesman said he does not support the concept.

"I want to throw up".

When asked by Tirico how this public debate with Pence has affected his focus, Rippon stated, "I've worked my entire life for this moment". I spoke out for them because right now I have a voice ... "That's a conversation for them".

"I'm ready. I'm here". "He said, "Not now - I'm at the Olympics, for heaven's sake'". We already know that Adam has a matching tattoo with teammate Mirai Nagasu, but what about his day-to-day routine?

Rippon was on the Winter Olympic team in 2014 but he didn't get the chance to compete. "I've got so many messages from kids all over the country - I'm getting so emotional thinking about it - I think that's why it's so important".
