Germany's Paul Fentz Dresses as Jaime Lannister, Skates to 'Game of Thrones' Music at Olympics 2018!

German skater Paul Fentz hits the ice in his Jaime Lannister costume to skate during the Men’s Single Long Program on Saturday (February 17) at Gangneung Ice Arena in Gangneung, South Korea.

The 25-year-old figure skater performed to the Game of Thrones music and he even wore a red sleeve to symbolize the moment when Nikolaj Coster-Waldau‘s character lost his hand in season three.

“I am trying to [represent him] correctly on the ice because at the beginning he is a bad guy and the music is really dark and everything, but at the end [he] gets glory,” Fentz told Elle.com after performing the routine. “I want to just be happy and take… the throne.”

Nathan Chen Becomes First Person to Land Six Quadruple Jumps in Competition!

Nathan Chen just made Olympic history!

The 18-year-old figure skater just became the first person to land six quadruple jumps in a single routine.

Nathan, who has been facing some disappointing performances in PyeongChang, found himself in first place following the incredible feat.

The performance earned him a score of 215.08, which combined with his short program score of 82.27, gave him a total of 297.35.

While the competition is still ongoing, the score could be enough for him to take home the gold medal!

The men’s individual event is his final competitive appearance at the games, so it looks like Nathan is certainly making the most of his last time on the ice.

Good luck Nathan!

Gus Kenworthy Breaks Thumb at Olympics 2018 Practice, Jokes He Can't Shake Mike Pence's Hand

Gus Kenworthy is keeping a positive outlook after breaking his thumb ahead of his 2018 Winter Olympics debut.

The 26-year-old skier took to Twitter on Thursday (February 15) to reveal he broke his thumb at practice, and shared that because of it he won’t have to shake Vice President Mike Pence‘s hand because of it.

“Broke my thumb yesterday in practice. It won’t stop me from competing (obvi) but it does prevent me from shaking Pence’s hand so… Silver linings! Will be giving my teammates (and literally everyone else) an enthusiastic “thumbs up!” of encouragement the rest of the trip,” Gus tweeted along with an X-ray of his thumb.

Gus – who came out as gay in 2015 – and figure skater Adam Rippon are two of the only openly gay athletes competing for Team USA at the Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Gus and Adam have been extremely vocal in their criticism of Pence being selected to lead the United States’ delegation in South Korea despite his strong anti-LGBTQ views.

Gus will compete in the slopestyle competition on Sunday, February 18.

Adam Rippon Scores High in Short Program at Winter Olympics! (Video)

Adam Rippon celebrates after his performance during the Men’s Single Skating Short Program during the 2018 Winter Olympics on Friday (February 16) at Gangneung Ice Arena in Gangneung, South Korea.

The 28-year-old figure skater scored 87.95 points for his program and landed in first place after he skated. At the time of this posting, he is currently in third place and there are still six skaters to compete including USA’s Nathan Chen.

Adam is not expected to get a medal and he knows it.

“Coming here, my most important event was that team event. To skate so well, I knew my job was to go and help Team USA get a medal,” Adam told NBC. “Now, I’m heading in the individual event, I know I’m not a medal favorite. And you know what, I know I might not be the best, but I’m the most fun. So I think that tonight, I’m really gonna enjoy myself, I’m gonna do my best to skate my heart out.”
