The Internet Can't Get Enough of This Olympic Figure Skater's Beyoncé Routine
Maé-Bérénice Méité skated to Beyoncé's "Who Run the World (Girls)' and "Halo" during the Pyeongchang games.
This is how you bring Black Girl Magic to the Winter Olympics:
Maé-Bérénice Méité, a figure skater of Ivorian and Congolese descent competing for France, brought fire to the Winter Olympics on Saturday when she decided to perform her routine to two hits from none other than Queen Mother, Beyoncé.
The 23-year-old athlete, brought the house down to "Who Run the World (Girls)" and "Halo," effortlessly bringing confidence, poise and skill to the rink.
According to The Root, the Pyeongchang games mark the first time that athletes were allowed to choose songs with lyrics to perform along to, and it was clear that Méité made the right choice. I mean, who better to skate to than Beyoncé?
"[Her music] is crazy, wild and fun," the athlete told Cosmopolitan about her decision to skate to Beyoncé's music. "You can just dance to it, and that's how I am," she added."
I wanted to do something that was very me, something fun, something I would enjoy!"
