The audio feed just picked up someone shouting “Let’s go, Brandon!” in the empty arena during pairs figure skating at the Olympics:
So, yes, there was a "let's go Brandon" cheer in the empty arena in Beijing before Knierim and Frazier skated.

Now, we’re pretty sure it was for U.S. Olympian Brandon Frazier and not a criticism of the president, but it’s still hilarious:
Let’s Go Brandon has been shouted live on air at the Olympics
For US figure skater Brandon Frazier of course

Hey, the phrase does have a double meaning nowadays:

An amazing moment in Olympics history:
OMG someone in the skating rink just shouted "Lt's go Brandon" to the American pairs skater Brandon Frazier 🤦♀️

Since there are no fans in attendance, it was likely a coach or a teammate, right?
Perhaps teammates/coaches cheering on Brandon Frazier of the US team?

And wouldn’t this coach or teammate know how this would be received?
