When you skate to music from “Game of Thrones,” you win or you lose.
Germany’s Paul Fentz failed to wow the judges in the men’s free skating event at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, on Saturday.
But his channeling of Jaime Lannister ― complete with a gold arm ― saw him win an army of new fans on social media:
The German ice skater cosplaying Jaime Lannister and dancing to the Game of Thrones theme wins a gold medal at life.

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

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.

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.
