Olympian Kate Hansen’s Competition Secret: Busting A Move To Beyoncé

In case you were wondering whether Olympians were totally sensible people who enjoy the finer things in life, you can rest easy. Kate Hansen, a luger on the U.S. team, has added some excellence to her performance in an official capacity with her 100% unofficial warm-up dance moves. When asked about the totally uninhibited routine she regularly performs before sliding, she said her playlist is "strictly Beyoncé."
Further endearing her to Queen B fans the world over, Hansen said, "My girl B! She just gets me fierce. I get stoked, I have to. I've got good mojo going on." If we had a nickel for every time we've said that exact sentence, we would have many, many nickels.
As you can see in the GIF below, she is carefree in a way that only Beyoncé's music can bring on. Needless to say, we love it. Echoing a sentiment we have felt countless times, Hansen said in an NBC interview that she's "completely in my own world. It doesn't matter who's staring, I gotta dance."
And, dance you will, Kate. Dance you will. Check out the full video interview here!
