Watch Tara Lipinski's Big Lebowski-Inspired Routine on Late Night

February 5, 2014  |  2:00pm

To simultaneously mark NBC’s coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi beginning this weekend as well as Jimmy Fallon’s upcoming transition to The Tonight Show, Olympic gold medalist Tara Lipinski took to the ice once again on Late Night for a glorious routine inspired by The Big Lebowski. Appropriately titled “The Big Lipinski,” the skit sees the figure skater execute more than a few impressive moves while donning The Dude’s iconic robe and raising a White Russian (get it?) like the Holy Grail itself, backed by the Kenny Rogers & The First Edition song “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)”.

Lipinski, who at the age of 15 won a gold medal in figure skating at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan, remains the youngest individual gold medalist in the history of the Games. NBC’s coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi begins this Thursday at 8 p.m. ET.
