Let me get this straight. Olympic figure skating athletes are incredibly talented, graceful, and dedicated human beings that have reached the very pinnacle of their sport.

Chances are if you followed anyone around at work and captured their facial expressions on freeze-frame, you’d come up with some pretty hilarious photos. Figure skaters at this level exert themselves to the highest possible degree, and that kind of effort, combined with the forces of gravity, is obviously going to put that cheesy smile for the judges to the ultimate test.

Here at Bored Panda, we have compiled a list of some of the best examples of funny faces that can only be met at an ice skating rink, which we hope that even the Olympic sports athletes themselves can admit are pretty hilarious. Scroll down to check the accidental portrait photography shots out for yourself, and vote for your favorites. What do you think about the internet having a giggle at these athletes in the middle of their strenuous routines, striving for gold? Let us know in the comments!
