Canadian figure skater Eric Radford has said he “might explode with pride”, after becoming the first openly gay Olympic champion at any Winter Games. … US skater Adam Rippon, the first openly gay athlete to reach the US Winter Olympics team, won bronze in the same event at the Gangneung Ice Arena.

HISTORY is being made at the Pyeongchang Games.
…and it’s not just the men who are making waves.
For me, I will never forget the performances of Canadian ice dancers Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.
It’s all so… AMAZING.
Canadian ice dancers Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue (definitely-not-madly-in-love partners) have clinched the gold medal for their country and wowed many non-Canadians in the process. #PyeongChang2018@Kate__Halliwell: https://t.co/MysgUgNZXg
