A medalist now too, Adam Rippon embraces role at Olympics

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) He’s 28, which is awfully old for a figure skater in the Olympics. That might have been the storyline on Adam Rippon at this Olympics, and it’s not a bad hook. The last time a figure skater so old made his Olympic debut was 1936, when NBC was just a radio network and the skating took place outdoors. But Adam Rippon is unlike any figure skater you know. And Adam Rippon loves to talk. Too much and too loudly for some people, who don’t like his message or his style.
