Adam Rippon landed right in the middle of the world’s stage when he represented the United States as a figure skater in the 2018 Winter Olympics, and glided right into our hearts. Not only that, but his Pyeongchang performance ended up winning him a bronze medal as part of the US team, and making him the first openly gay athlete to win a medal at any winter Olympics. In his talkshow-style YouTube series Break The Ice, Rippon teaches celebrity guests and skater friends — including Gus Kenworthy and Todrick Hall — how to do some fun ice-dancing moves, as they discuss pop culture and more.

Adam Rippon expounded on the lessons he learned from his mother and how it shaped his attitude toward life.

“As I got older I realized that to give something 100% you have to give all of yourself and sometimes that means sharing all of yourself with whatever you’re doing and whomever you’re working with," he said. "It’s been such an important lesson and something I bring with me, whether it’s in the sports world or not. I really give 100% of myself and try to use my voice whenever I have the opportunity to."
