Mirai Nagasu Lands Triple Axel at Olympics

Figure Skater Mirai Nagasu Becomes First American Woman to Land Triple Axel at the Olympics

Riveted by the team competition tonight, I was stoked to watch history being made. Mirai Nagasu was the first American woman to land a triple axel at the Olympics. Andrea Joyce of NBC asked her how she was feeling, and Mirai replied, "Superhappy to feel my teammates' support." And about her history-making jump, she said, "To nail the triple axel . . . I tripped a couple times going into it because I was so nervous. But to tell myself, naw, I am going go for it 100 percent, and not pull back." Congratulations Mirai!

Check out that triple!
