Adam Rippon Quotes

   

First and foremost, I’m an athlete. And I’m an Olympian. I’m not a gay Olympian. I’m just an Olympian that’s also gay. I don’t mind reading that – like, ‘gay Olympian Adam Rippon.’ It’s fine.

My earliest memory of the Olympics was watching the 1996 Games in Atlanta. I remember everyone being so excited to watch. Seeing the American athletes on the podium, I saw myself.
