French Figure Skater "Rapper's Delight" Olympics 2018

A Team France Figure Skater Just Broke It DOWN to "Rapper's Delight," and We Are Feeling It

While you might be used to hearing opera and classical piano music during figure skating performances, this year's set of Olympians are shaking things up with more modern music, and we are really feeling it.

Chafik Besseghier from France's figure skating team showed off his style — and stellar taste in music — in Pyeongchang, South Korea, during the men's short program with "Rapper's Delight" by The Sugarhill Gang. The old-school hip-hop vibe set the tone for Besseghier's absolutely fierce routine on the ice. See above for his performance at an earlier competition this year.
