Spain's Javier Fernández Short Program Routine Olympics 2018

Javier Fernández and His Saucy Figure Skating Routine Will Make Your Body Feel Things

Two-time world champion figure skater, undefeated European champion (gold every year since 2013!), and three-time Olympian Javier Fernández has (shockingly) never actually stood on the Olympic podium. But after his incredible performance in the men's short program, we're pretty sure that's about to change in the most triumphant of ways.

With a stunning short program show in Pyeongchang, South Korea, Javier combined power and strength with grace and beautiful precision — and he heads into the short program finals in second place, with an astounding 107.58 points. His biggest obstacle will be his friend and training mate: Japan's 23-year-old Yuzuru Hanyu, who was just slightly ahead of Javier with his flawless 111.62-point performance.

And naturally, the internet as a whole (we include ourselves in this) has fallen in love with Javi, for a number of reasons (booty included). See below.
