Olympic pair skating has just got such a hard core, the Internet is here.
France’s Vanessa James and Morgan Cipres played the classic “silence” of Simon and Garfunkel in the metal band’s free skating competition, prompting some excellent Internet reactions.
The group, which won the bronze in the 2017 European championships, finished sixth in the team’s short-term plan with a score of 75.34. That’s enough to put them on the medal table. But perhaps most important of all, it has earned the two men on the Internet how to put elegance on a surprisingly difficult track.
This is a pair of songs that have been skating together since 2010. Last year, they also used the song for their free skateboard. “It was found by our coach,” James told the Associated Press. “They’re like ‘we really think this could be hit’.”
This marks the first Olympic Games where competitors can glide songs with lyrics. The use of music is helping to connect viewers to one of the most popular sports in the winter Olympics.

You would think that when Mirai Nagasu became the first American figure skater to land in a three-wheel race at the 2018 Olympics, it was something everyone would talk about. As it turns out, you can do great things at the Olympics, and people will still be like, “this is great, but do you have a big tattoo on your thigh?”
In her daily work, it looks as if there will be a “us” tattoo on her thigh in the future. Although if that’s the case, that would be great, but what you see is just therapeutic tape. In fact, you can even buy your own Team USA KT tape, like Nagasu online, to relieve pain and support muscle pain, joints and tendons.
After Twitter speculated that Nagasu had a large thigh, Twitter was in a frenzy, and Nagasu relayed the record by forwarding a person who explained that she was wearing a tape.
“No, Mirai Nagasu doesn’t have a huge tattoo on the inside of her thigh,” someone wrote on Twitter. “This is a therapeutic tape. Unless… She has a huge tattoo on the inside of her thigh. !!!!!!!!! “
