Felicia Zhang and Nate Bartholomay ended their pairs figure skating partnership, but the Olympians pulled off a neat trick together throwing a ceremonial first pitch at an MLB game Monday night.

They walked in front of the pitcher’s mound at the Tampa Bay Rays’ Tropicana Field. Bartholomay lifted Zhang above his head, and Zhang threw a strike.

Not bad. Add it to the list of memorable Olympian first pitches.
