Elmo Shares Adorable Victory Dance With Out Skater Adam Rippon

Sesame Street star Elmo took to Twitter to congratulate out figure skater Adam Rippon for winning the bronze this weekend at the Winter Olympics.

Elmo shared a GIF jiving with Rippon, who placed third behind Russian skater Mikhail Kolyada and Canadian Patrick Chan.

“Elmo is so proud of you!” the ticklish Muppet wrote. “#Elmovation!”

Rippon made history in January when he became the first openly gay male American to qualify for a Winter Olympics.

Earlier this month, Elmo interviewed Rippon and other Olympians about their sports. “You wear ice skates,” the 28-year-old told his fuzzy friend. “I like to go as fast as I can and do spins and jumps.”
