When you skate to music from “Game of Thrones,” you win or you lose.

The German ice skater cosplaying Jaime Lannister and dancing to the Game of Thrones theme wins a gold medal at life.— Kate Kastelein (@mommyk8) February 17, 2018
Honestly wouldn’t have cared if this guy skating to a piano cover of the game of thrones theme song fell every 3 seconds, we need to give him every medal. #pyeongchang2018— Monica Bridgelall (@mbridgelall) February 17, 2018
Game of Thrones music to Olympics Figure Skating? I love it. All we need is Khaleesi flying in on one of her dragons. Or better yet, the Night King refreezing the ice with his night dragon.— Arjun Sethi (@arjunsethi81) February 17, 2018
This German figure skater is doing his routine to a Game of Thrones soundtrack. The commentators are making Game of Thrones references. And I am here for it.— Dwight Burnham (@DwightBurnham) February 17, 2018
