Mirai Nagasu established herself as a star at a young age

Share

Mirai Nagasu at a young age established herself as one of the best figure skaters in the world. At 14, she became the second-youngest to win the U.S. senior ladies championship. Two years later, Nagasu competed in the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, finishing fourth in the ladies’ singles competition.

Nagasu returned to the Winter Olympics at PyeongChang 2018, where she became the first American woman to land a triple axel during Olympic competition and helped the U.S. win bronze in the ladies’ team event.
