Adam Rippon And Gus Kenworthy Reflect On Their ‘Beautiful’ New Friendship

Not to be that straight girl fawning over gay guys and how cute they are, but look at this cute thing Adam Rippon and Gus Kenworthy did!!!!

In a new interview with The Guardian, the pair of athletes opened up to journalist Tik Root about competing at the in Pyeongchang over the past few weeks, being the first openly gay men to represent the United States at the Winter Olympics, and supporting one another as teammates and friends. My favorite thing about it, though, is how openly affectionate Adam and Gus are towards one another. Friends are the best! I love friends.

When asked what his favorite moment at the Olympics was, Adam, who earned bronze in the team figure skating event, responded that he loved getting to do what he does best while being gay as hell. “I was able to be completely myself the entire time,” he said. “It was just very special and very, very cool.”

Gus, who competed in slopestyle at Pyeongchang, said that his favorite part of the Olympics was cheering for Adam from the stands. “It felt good to be there supporting him and he skated so beautiful,” said Gus. “I’m always a proud dad.”

“Every day you’re a proud dad,” said Adam, “when I’m your son.”

They’re trying to kill me, I swear!

Even though the Winter Olympics have come to a close, the athletes have no plans to part ways. “I think Gus and I are going to remain friends,” Adam told The Guardian. “We’re going to see each other a bunch. It’ll be great and beautiful.”

Deeply too much! Deep! Ly! Too! Much!
