Figure skating would be nothing without the dramatics, right? Here, Team USA’s Madison Chock and Evan Bates can be seen hamming it up for the judges.

Okay, I’ll admit it — it’s hard to find a bad picture of Team USA’s Nathan Chen. But any time a figure skater looks like they’re about to rocket into outer space on leg strength alone, it’s a little funny.

Hey, there’s nothing wrong with casually levitating in the air from time to time, and Alexa Knierim and Brandon Frazier from Team USA are here to prove it. This picture is already gold, but Knierim’s unbothered face is what really does it for me.

Here, South Korea's You Young looks like she just spotted someone she really, really doesn’t like in the stands. Now that’s a fighting stance, if I’ve ever seen one.


Sure, Team USA’s Jason Brown may be pulling off a dramatic stunt, but can we get some commotion for the work those stretchy pants are putting in? My yoga pants could never.

Team USA’s Alysa Liu may be an incredibly skilled figure skater, but no amount of talent could’ve saved her from the intense G-forces on that jump — phew!
