There's no such thing as looking American. America is so diverse when compared to other countries that you can't tell.

Where can I see the full performance? I have try to find it and the only one I find is the one where she stumbles when she landed so is not the same as this one..
I guess you could say she was born to make history 😉😉

The Olympics in Korea looked a lot more fun than the Olympics in Russia! I think Mirai was better off than Ashley in the end.

I mean- sure, with the media attention. However, they both got Bronze Medal from Team Event, and Wagner placed much higher than Nagasu in the individual.

Tonya Harding was actually the first woman to land a triple axel ..

Tonya was the second woman to land a triple axel in competition, after Midori Ito. But Tonya never landed it at the Olympics, making Mirai the first American woman to do it at the Olympics
Daisy diamond (23 days ago)
yes but not at the olympics. She didnt do it at the olympics where she really wanted to do that.

Omg that was amazing I want to do professional Ice skating i am 17 almost 18 so I am a little worried but my best friends is cheering me On and so are my parents so I will just have to work hard
She wasnt the first american women to land a triple axel, Tonya Harding was. If youre saying its such an impressive jump then give credit to the REAL first women. SHE made history.

She’s the first American of Asian descendant to complete a triple axel, though she’s slender like Mao Asada and not built like Midori Ito a Japanese figure skater who was of athletic build like the American figure skater, Tonya Harding. Mirai Nagasu has a great deal of flexibility in some areas.

I'm sorry 20mph, nearly the speed of an average human jeez. Might not seem fast but still that's like vaccum wave not being able to hardly breath for a few seconds.

I will forever associate the triple axel with miss Tonya. She owns it! These little wannabes better remember who the queen of the triple axel is.

Asians in America: Remember, you'll NEVER be an American. You will ALWAYS be an "eternal foreigner" despite your patriotism and accomplishments. Just make bank and leave this cesspool of hate and misanthropy.
