Tonya Harding was the 1st american woman to land a triple axel at the 1991 US national championships. Tonya Harding never landed a triple axel at the olympic games. She fell on both 3A attempts in 1992 at the Albertville Olympics. Tonya was also the 2nd woman to ever land a triple axel in international competition at the 1991 world championships. Midori Ito of Japan was the 1st woman to ever land a triple axel in 1988. Midori became the 1st woman to ever land a triple axel at the world championships in 1989. Midori also became the 1st women to ever land a triple axel at the olympic games in albertville in 1992. Mirai became the 1st american woman to land a triple axel at the olympics in 2018 in south korea. Mirai is now the 2nd american woman to land a triple axel in international competition (Kimmie Meisner's triple axel at the US nationals in 2005 does not count internationally). Mirai is also the 8th woman as of sept 9 18 to ever land a triple axel in international competition.

Mirai's face when she landed it reminded me so much of when Tonya Harding became the first American woman to land the first triple axel at the 1991 US Championships. The athelete cheering for herself mid-routine, the excitement, the audience going crazy, it's like watching the moment all over again.

Tonya Harding did it better
lsr asr (10 days ago)
Tonya has a more powerful and higher jump. But Tonya's 3A is tilted, off center and wild. Tonya only landed the 3A in 1991 in competition. Tonya did not land the 3A at the 1992 olympics in albertville (she fell twice on both attempts.). Mirai's 3A is beautifully done and was done at the olympics, a more difficult competition.
Catherine S (28 days ago)
it's impressive, but she completely cheats this jump. when you pause it at :45, you can clearly see that her blade is already rotated and when she lands at :48, it's about a 90 degree angle from take off rather than 180. In a world where they're cracking down on flutzes, it's bizarre to me that the judges let this slide under review.

No tonya harding was the first lady and figuer skater to complete a triple Axel
lsr asr (1 month ago)
Pandi Corn - Tonya was the 1st American lady to complete a 3A back in 1991 at the US Nationals. The 1st woman to complete a triple axel was Midori Ito in 1988 at the NHK in Japan. Midori was also the 1st lady to complete the triple axel in World competition at the 1989 Worlds in Paris. Midori became the 1st woman to complete a triple axel at the olympics in 1992 at Albertville when she landed the 3A in her long program at the 3 minute 10 second mark. Midori's triple axel at the 1992 olympics was honored by the Olympic Channel as one of its impossible moments in the history of the winter olympics. if you type "Midori impossible" into the you tube search you can watch it.

Tonya was the 1st american woman to land the triple axel in 1991 at the US national championships. Tonya tried 2 triple axels at the 1992 olympics in albertville and fell on both of them. Mirai became the 1st american woman to land the triple axel at the olympic games in 2018 in south korea. Mirai is also the 2nd american woman to land a triple axel in international competition. Kimmie Meisner of the US landed a triple axel (barely) at the US national championships in 2005 but Kimmie never landed one in international competition.

amy is correct about Tonya, Mirai and Midori. Midori was the 1st to land the triple axel in 1988, the 1st to land the triple axel at the Worlds in 1989 and the 1st to land the triple axel in the olympics at albertville in 1992.
amy (2 months ago)
tonya was the first american woman to land it in international competition, but tonya failed to land it at the olympics. mirai was the 2nd american woman to land it in international competition but the first american woman to land it at the olympics. remember that midori ito was the first woman ever to land a triple axel in competition.

lsr asr first 3A landed by a man in international comp was in 1978, but yes brian orser was the first to land it at the olympics.
lsr asr (10 days ago)
amy, i believe the 1st 3A by a man was brian orser in 1984 at the olympic games. Midori's 1st triple axel was in 1988 at the NHK trophy in Japan.
ON TARIO (2 months ago)
Yes, that is true. She didn't do it in the olympics.
amy (2 months ago)
yes, tonya was the first american woman to land it at an internation competition, but tonya did not land it in the olympics. mirai is the first american woman to land it in the olympics. also, keep in mind that midori ito was actually the first woman ever that landed a 3A in competition (and of course men have been competing a 3A for much longer than women).

Nice try but the jump was clearly under-rotated. If you look at her landing foot, you can see how the pick of the blade came down before the 90° mark.
