Mirai Nagasu at the 2018 Winter Olympics

Mirai Nagasu became the first American woman to land a triple axel in the Pyeongchang Olympics on Monday, and with Adam Rippon nailing both of his triple axels they helped earn the United States the bronze medal in the team figure skating competition. Nagasu trains at the Broadmoor Skating Club in Colorado Springs and is a student at UCCS. She also worked with the Colorado Avalanche as an 'ice girl' during the 2015-16 season.
