The Winter Olympics are drawing to a close. Currently, the United States is fourth place (alongside The Nederlands and France) with a total of 14 medals. Norway is in first, with 32 medals, followed by Germany (23 medals) and Canada (20 medals). We’re so proud of our amazing athletes and loved watching some of our favorites compete in ice dancing this week (looking at you, Shib Sibs - congrats on your Bronze medal!).
But as much as we love our team, our heroes from the week have to be French Duo Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron. During Monday’s short dance, Papadakis experienced a wardrobe malfunction that caused her leotard to unhook and expose her top half. To make matters worse, this was their Olympic Debut. Talk about a rough start! But MAN, are these two cool under pressure. (Literally cool - because they’re ice skaters - get it?). Both were so quick on their feet, they adjusted and continued on as if nothing were wrong. It’s the mark of a true performer when you are able to roll with the punches - and they even went on to score 81.93, despite their costume struggles! They didn’t let the malfunction affect their remaining routines either as they set a record for the highest-ever free dance score (123.35), cementing them as silver medalists!
