Adam Rippon fires back at critics with inspiring message about failure

15 February 2018

Coming into the Olympics, Rippon was critical of Pence's poor record on gay rights, which led to Pence, who attended the opening ceremony, tweeting him not to believe "fake news".

That was a two-week story that transferred over to fellow Olympic athlete Gus Kenworthy, who also said he was not interested in sitting down with the Vice President to discuss LGBT issues, at least not during the Olympic Games.

Adam Rippon is already one of the stars of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

"I'm going to go to Target and I'm going to get a bottle of Sauvignon blanc, Oyster Bay, with the twist top, immediately", he said.

"The other day I was joking to one of my friends". In an NBC interview with Joyce after this victory, Rippon said with nearly identical wonderment, "Andrea, you and I both have waited a long time for this". Because I think what you think of as like the American people embracing, I don't think, on paper, I really embody much of any of that sort of perceived persona.

Speaking after taking bronze in the first contest, Rippon said: "There are so many emotions when I step on the ice".

It was Allen's best output in an ACC game after several struggle-filled nights this season. "He's our leader", said Krzyzewski. Justin Bibbs (15 points) was their lone double-figure scorer, and with Carter snaring 13 rebounds, Duke owned the glass 36-19.

"If he ever does want to do a figure skating game, I totally call dibs on making it", he said.

"I don't want my Olympic experience being about Mike Pence".

"I think I had a stress fracture before I broke my foot", Rippon said. If that means people turn against him or say they hope he will fall - and some have told him exactly that - that's their problem, not his. I think me using my voice has given my skating a greater goal, more so than just something I love to do.

The retailer also simplified its membership structure by reducing the number of memberships from three to just two: club and plus.

He added on Instagram: "I feel incredibly honored to be here in Korea competing for the USA and I'm so proud to be representing the LGBTQ community alongside this unbelievable guy!" And four years later, we're sharing an Olympic podium together.

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 incredible eyebrows). If I didn't feel comfortable to share my feelings and thoughts, I was able to go out on the ice and express them.
