Mirai Nagasu Becomes The First American Woman To Land A Triple Axel In The Winter Olympics

Canadian women blank Russians 5-0 to open Olympic play

"I am a little bit anxious if I go over there, will she get more pressure, or not", she shared with Us. "To nail it the way I did-and even out of the corner of my eye, I could see my teammates standing in excitement".

Before this weekend, there were only two women figure skaters in the world who had successfully landed a triple axel in Olympic competition: Japanese skaters Midori Ito (in 1992) and Mao Asada (in 2010 and 2014).

"I'm speechless", Maia said, according to U.S. Figure Skating. (Ashley Wagner, who finished in fourth, was selected for the Olympic team instead.) "I just remember four years ago, Mirai and I were in a dark place".

Adam Rippon made his PyeongChang debut on Sunday with a almost flawless routine in the men's free skate, part of the figure skating team event. Instead, both he and fellow US athlete, freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, have doubled down. Her first name means "future" in Japanese and she reportedly speaks a mixture of Japanese and English at home with her parents. If you feel like you've been hearing "triple axel" a lot this year, you're not wrong. Her mom was very dedicated to her interest in skating, making all of her performance costumes by hand.

"We enjoy seeing them", Alex Shibutani-one half of the famed Shibutani sibling ice dancing duo-told NBCOlympics.com.

Nagasu, from Arcadia, Calif., was the first American woman to return to the team after being left off at a prior Olympics.

Kids under two at greater risk of flu related death
The team said some have suggested the possibility of slower development of age-related immune response to influenza B. About half of the children hospitalized for the flu were previously healthy, with no known underlying illness.

"I tripped a couple times going into it because I was so nervous, but to tell myself, 'no, I'm going to go for it, 100 percent and not pull back, ' that was really special for me". It's also just me and I'm just being myself so it's nearly easier than ever to be here and be competing and just feel free and liberated.

She 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.

On the summer side, three-time beach volleyball champ Misty May-Treanor competed on Season 7 after Beijing but withdrew after rupturing her Achilles tendon, and Final Five gymnast Laurie Hernandez and 12-time Olympic swimming medalist Ryan Lochte were on Season 23 right after Rio, where Lochte infamously lied about getting robbed.

"I knew in my heart this day would come".

"I guess we'll see how I handle it".
