LA's Adam Rippon Hits Olympic Ice

SportsDonald Trump Jr. Attempted to Spread Fake News About Adam Rippon But Twitter Wasn’t Having It Written by Alexander Kacala

For Rippon, the first openly gay man to compete for the U.S.in the Winter Olympics, winning an Olympic medal means he can kickstart hard conversations while the spotlight shines on him and help others battling similar eating disorders.

Casey Larson of the United States makes a jump during the Ski Jumping Men's Normal Hill Individual Final on day one of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at Alpensia Ski Jumping Center on February 10, 2018.

So, going forward, I'm taking a page out of Rippon and Davenport's bedazzled book.

But Rippon added: "I don't want my Olympic experience to be about Mike Pence".

He told NBC he and teammate Mirai Nagasu "were eating In-N-Out because we were so upset we weren't at the Olympic games". "I want it to be about my fantastic skating and being America's sweetheart".

"Honestly, it's really fun to be yourself", Rippon said Tuesday.

Adam Rippon rewarded with bronze medal after long journey to Olympic stage
We got you, our little Rippon junkies... "I want it to be about my wonderful skating and being America's sweetheart". For Adam Rippon , the hunger for Olympic glory is a struggle endured both on and off the ice.

Trump Jr.is right about the fact that if Rippon didn't want to talk about politics and wanted to keep his focus just on Olympics he shouldn't have engrossed himself in such a position in the first place.

"I remember a practice with Rafael [Arutunian], and I was like, Raf, I don't like to compete", Rippon recalled at nationals in January.

Either way, the 37-year-old Rippon says it's not the only account that's been misguided since the start of Olympic season. I have a passion for what I do, and along with having a passion for being an Olympic athlete, I have a passion for talking with people and sharing my story and interacting with people. It has nothing to do with how I got here. "You're an embarrassment!" Here's the bad news for Grumpygrampa22: Unless he meant to insult a 37-year-old game designer in Oakland, California, he got the wrong Adam Rippon. "I think it's giving my skating a greater goal". It was the first time I did a triple in that kind of competition, so I was really excited as soon as I did that'.

"To all those who tweet at me saying that they "hope I fail", I have failed many times many times in my life", Rippon wrote.

"I'm not a gay Olympian". He ultimately dropped that act, and instead opted for music he called "trashy club mix" for his short program because "it embodies me even more than my own voice", he told The New York Times.
