Out figure skater Adam Rippon did not walk away with a medal for his individual performance at the Olympics yesterday, but he won his fans’ hearts.

Yesterday, in the Men’s Single Skating event, he finished seventh in the Short Program and tenth in Free Skating. His combined score put him in tenth place.

After the event, the 28-year-old skater was asked if he would retire. “I think at first I need a five-minute break and a really stiff drink and then maybe, like a day or two off the ice, at least to dry out my costumes, and then we’ll see.”

Twitter sent him love.

Rippon will be going home with a bronze medal for the team figure skating event.
