Mirai Nagasu is the first US woman EVER to land the triple axel at the Olympics.

Sunday night, Nagasu shocked and gagged the world during her free skate at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Games. Her performance not only made HERSTORY but helped the US Olympic team take home the bronze.

The triple axel is considered one of the most difficult jumps a skater can perform. She not only made the whole 3 and a half rotations required to perform the triple axel but also landed cleanly on the ice.

Nags earned a score of 10.07 for the jump.

meaning she received an extra 1.57 points (out of three) on her grade of execution score, which reflects how well judges believed she performed the jump

Fun fact: Nagasu watches RuPaul’s Drag Race before taking the ice to channel her inner queen. YAS!!! But seriously, come kiki with us at DragCon LA.

She told Cosmo

I love that these queens [on RPDR] are willing to put out their personality in front of everyone… I feel like I’m actually an introverted person and that I have become an extrovert, so I think watching them has been really inspirational to me and I’ve taken their advice to be who you want to be, and to be yourself.

Also, please come to DRAGCON LA, we would love to have you!!

CONDRAGULATIONS Mirai Nagasu on the Bronze Medal and for making HERSTORY!
