Ivett Toth Skated to AC/DC at the Olympics and Twitter is Thunderstuck
The 2018 Winter Olympics has delivered some vintage moments. Think Shaun White’s halfpipe gold, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir's stunning ice dancing routines and Czech Ester Ledecka's surprise Super G win. Add Ivett Toth to the list.
Wearing a leather top and appropriately decked out in black, the Hungarian skater hit the ice to AC/DC's “Back In Black” and “Thunderstruck” during the Ladies' Short program.
The performance rocked and earned Toth a score of 53.22, good enough for a season best though well out of medal contention.
A rule change from skating's governing body has opened up the program at the Gangneung Ice Arena for a range of rock and pop soundtracks. Songs from Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Snow Patrol, Christina Aguilera, Adele, David Bowie and even Pink Floyd have accompanied routines so far. Now, AC/DC has soundtracked a ladies’ figure skating routine and Twitter is thunderstuck.
There is a girl ice skating to AC/DC right now. She just made my night.— Wade Firaben (@WFiraben) February 21, 2018
I know nothing about figure skating, but I’m cheering for the girl who just did a routine to @acdc Thunderstruck. ----Of course the narrow minded douche announcers buried her choice of music. #WinterOlympics— Frankie Kazarian (@FrankieKazarian) February 21, 2018
New favorite skater ever: Ivett Toth, who is skating to AC/DC's Back in Black and Thunderstruck. I feel like I'm at an NFL game. (Or working out in the gym.) She's wearing what looks like leather biker gear. The old judges are nearly fainting. You be yourself, girl!— Juliet Macur (@JulietMacur) February 21, 2018
this lil one came in with the AC/DC knowing full well the judges would hate it and sis did NOT give a fuck pic.twitter.com/qBWX3lZslG— Cammien Ray (@CammienRay) February 21, 2018
Skating to AC/DC is a dang strong move.— Jane Coaston (@cjane87) February 21, 2018
They completely dismissed the girl who skates to AC/DC only because it wasn’t dainty and pretty enough for them. She did great and was brave enough to do that routine at the #Olympics , these announcers are shit #pyeongchang2018 #FigureSkating— nicole (@nicolelizab3th_) February 21, 2018
