The 2018 Winter Olympics came to a close on Sunday in Pyeongchang, South Korea. If you missed this year's biggest moments or just need a refresher, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots had just the thing on Friday night's episode of The Tonight Show.

It was the final installment of the host's "Fallon Five" segment, a shortened version of the show which aired during NBC's coverage of the games last week. Fallon used the time to write out a few of his famous thank-you notes, themed to the Olympics. They ranged from general commentary about luge and freestyle skiing, to an observation about gold medalist Red Gerard that you won't be able to unsee.


However, if you're looking for some more specific reminiscing about this year's games, look no further than The Roots' Tariq Trotter, who offered a rap summing up some of the Olympics' biggest moments in less than one minute. He covered everything from the opening ceremony to gold medalist Chloe Kim's love of snacks.

"Then Mirai Nagasu said, 'I got you, I'll do the impossible,' We said, 'I'll watch you rock the triple axel, and then bring it back to the U.S.'" he rapped about the Team USA figure skater. "Girl, you just queen of the castle."
