Arcadia's Mirai Nagasu inspires SoCal ice skaters with triple axel at Olympics

She became the first American woman to ever complete a triple axel during her figure skating routine!

"It was bad", Nagasu told USA Today about missing the roster. She pulled it off in her free skate as part of the team competition, which helped land the US team a bronze medal. Eight years ago, when Nagasu competed at the Vancouver Games, the team event didn't exist. With a new, even more sequined costume, 28-year-old Rippon got on the ice for his Olympic debut and told himself, "Baby, you better keep it together".

However she failed to land the virtually impossible three and a half rotations that it requires after her 1991 success, making Nagasu's accomplishment historic.

"And, I tripped a couple times". It doesn't happen immediately. Nagasu has said that her sushi chef father rarely had the chance to see her skate because he nearly never closed his restaurant, and now is no different.

He had the highest score in the session, 179.75, but Chan fell once, put his hand to the ice on another jump and cut short a combination. According to the outlet, she got fourth at the 2010 Olympics, before being left off the team for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi in favor of Ashley Wagner.

Minor natural disaster hits Wales and southwest England
The US Geological Survey & British Geological Survey confirmed an natural disaster of 4.7 magnitude was recorded at 2.31pm. One said: 'Wtf! My house just shook! "The dogs are not happy at all though", she said.


Nagasu is only skater in her division to perform the triple axel, and her performance marked the third time the feat has ever been seen on the Olympic stage.

Rippon said the pressure of expectations was why he failed to make Olympics teams in previous years. "So much fun", Rippon said to NBC's Andrea Joyce. "He told me that I need to win two medals here, one for "Nastia" and one for him". Once he realized that he did, he focused on competing for the Olympics on his own terms, coming out as gay in 2015 and focusing on his comeback.

Canada won the gold medal, with the Russians taking the silver.

Adam Rippon and Mirai Nagasu of the USA became breakout figure skating stars at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang on Monday. I want to go over to the judges and say, 'Can I just have a Xanax and a quick drink?

"Maybe it's the Japanese genetics, but lucky for me, I'm American, so I'll be the first US lady", joked the daughter of Japanese immigrants.
