This Figure Skater Performed to Beyoncé at the Olympics and the Internet Is Loving It

The Olympics got under way in PyeongChang over the weekend, and while French figure skater Maé-Bérénice Méité may not have ended up on the podium, she did win over the Internet by performing a routine set to Beyoncé songs.
 
Méité skated to a medley “Run the World (Girls)” and a cover “Halo” by Jasmine Thompson during the women’s short program on Saturday night (February 10).
 
As previously reported, an old rule was lifted earlier this year, making this the first Olympic Games to allow athletes to skate to music with lyrics.
 
The performance landed Méité in ninth place overall, but she nevertheless delivered one the most memorable skates the evening.
 
Watch footage her skate, and see some the social media appreciation her performance garnered below.
