If you don’t know who Adam Rippon is, where have you been the past few weeks?! He won bronze in the team skating event, but the 28-year-old figure skater hasn’t just wowed on the ice with his skating skills — he’s had fans rolling with his funny quotes. His Twitter game is so strong it deserves a gold medal.
The Winter Games in PyeongChang wouldn’t be the same without Rippon’s witty commentary — seriously! When asked what it’s like to be a gay athlete in sports, he didn’t hesitate to deliver this gem: “It’s exactly like being a straight athlete. Lots of hard work but usually done with better eyebrows.”
After winning the coveted medal, he thanked his mom (kind of) and gave a huge shout-out to Reese Witherspoon. Yes, that Reese — the famous actress. “I owe this medal a lot to [Reese Witherspoon] and to my mom. But, like, more to Reese in a way, ya know? Because she has more followers on Instagram.”
