U.S. figure skater Mirai Nagasu made history at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, by successfully performing the first ever triple axel performed by an American woman at the Winter Games.
As the 24-year-old skater achieved her difficult maneuver fans could see the joy on her face as she completed the last few moves of her fantastic routine.
Nagasu left the ice clearly jazzed by her performance, Fox News reported.
The nearly flawless routine earned the California-based skater a personal best score of 137.53.
Nagasu joined Japan’s Midori Ito and Mao Asada in performing the difficult triple spin at this year’s Winter Olympics.
