Olympic figure skater goes viral as he performs to Game of Thrones music
Paul Fentz sent GOT fans into a tizzy last night.
The German Olympian performed at yesterday's Winter Olympics to music from the Game of Thrones dressed as Jamie Lannister.
The 25-year-old gave a captivating performance when he took to the ice at the games in Pyeongchang. The skater earned a score of 139.82 for this free skate, ending the men’s singles competition with a total of 214.55 after scoring 74.73 for his previous performance.

Commentator Tara Lipinski, a big Game of Thrones fan herself, was so excited for the performance, but had so many critiques during the routine that fellow commentator Johnny Weir started calling her “Cersei", allowing people to totally lose it on Twitter.
OMG!! Johnny Weir just called Tara Lipinski ‘Cersei’ for her critique of the German male figure skater’s Game of Thrones program. #dead

Fentz’ music choices have certainly been an eclectic mix, having previously danced to a cover of Oasis’s Wonderful with jazzy trimmings earlier in the competition.
