Adam Rippon United States Champion

Biography

Artist. Athlete. Activist.

 

Adam Rippon is a combination of all three.

 

One of the most dramatic figure skaters on the planet, Adam won the hearts of America and the world at the 2018 Winter Olympics.  Known for his refreshing candor and wit, his rise to fame on the global stage has provided him with a platform to speak out in support of LGBTQ rights and the freedom to be oneself. 

 

His passion and charm have made him an inspiration to young and old alike and he has quickly become a role model and icon to millions. 

 

In addition to his recent team bronze medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, Adam has garnered nine medals on the international circuit over the last four years, including the 2016 U.S. men’s championship title.

 

Always a team player, he has shared his artistry with his fellow skaters through music and theme recommendations and has choreographed programs for U.S. champions Mirai Nagasu and Ashley Wagner.

 

The oldest of six children from Scranton, Pennsylvania, Adam got a relatively late start as a skater at the age of 10. But once he started skating, he never looked back. He rose through the skating ranks, claiming the world junior title twice before winning the U.S. men’s title in 2016.  He was named to his first Olympic team in 2018 at the age of 28.

 

Adam also made the bold decision to come out publicly in October 2015 in an interview with SKATING magazine which led him to become the first openly gay athlete to represent the United States in Olympic competition.
