The men’s individual figure skating event wrapped up Friday night, and while he didn’t medal, Germany’s Paul Fentz briefly eclipsed the Winnie-the-Pooh rain showers for doing his free skate to music from Game of Thrones.
Fentz, 25, is making his Olympic debut at the 2018 Games. He represented Germany in the team figure skating event, then hit the ice again in the men’s singles competition.
His costume, which featured a single gold glove, appeared to emulate “Game of Thrones” character Jamie Lannister, who wears a gold prosthetic hand after losing his real one in season three.
Here is the video of his amazing performance:
The nod to the former Hand of the King wasn’t lost on commentator Tara Lapinski, who ended his skate by saying, “A Lannister always pays his debts.”
Fans got really excited after seeing his performance. Here are some fans reaction.

I think good song choice should give an extra point. Game of Thrones guy gets +1 in my world. #figureskating
