Olympic figure skating star Adam Rippon is the talk of the town following his debut performance in the 2018 winter games in South Korea.

The Clarks Summit native delivered a flawless performance Sunday night to help secure the U.S. men's figure skating team a bronze medal in the free skate event.

Rippon still has a shot at Olympic gold. He's set to compete Friday in the men's single short program.
