The 2018 Winter Olympics have officially begun in PyeongChang, South Korea. Already one athlete has been standing out and winning over hearts: US figure skater Adam Rippon.
First he became the first openly gay US male to qualify for the Winter Games.
However, one of the biggest ways Rippon makes a splash is on Twitter.
Here are some of his wittiest and funniest tweets to make everyone fall mor ein love.
I was recently asked in an interview what its like to be a gay athlete in sports. I said that it’s exactly like being a straight athlete. Lots of hard work but usually done with better eye brows.

And his eyebrows are definitely on point.
The REAL one for I did for TV says “my mom” but, like, I needed this one for myself because it was the first thing that actually popped in my head and I thought I was so funny. pic.twitter.com/aC5X7wQ7bY

Rippon has his share of critics, but they only propel him forward.
Today my coach told me he was proud of me and then followed it up with “I mean, you remember how bad you were? Don’t you?!” – Yin and yang.

He has excellent taste.
And he has a great relationship with his mom.

This is Rippon’s Housewives tagline.
And he’s a great role model as an out athlete.
