Mirai Nagasu made history when she landed a triple axel, becoming the first American woman to do so at the Olympics, during her free skate for the figure skating team event at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.

She’s the third woman to do so in the history of the Winter Games, and she pulled it off during her free skate for the figure skating team event. A triple axel requires a forward takeoff and 3.5 rotations. Team USA won a Bronze Medal in the team event.
