The Triple Axel isn’t new, but it’s still exciting

If you’re anything like me, you heard Olympic commentators talking about Mirai Nagasu’s triple Axel and you thought to yourself, hasn’t this been done before?  I remember hearing about Tonya Harding doing this in the 90’s.  But upon further exploration, I realized how rare the triple axel is and why it’s so hard.  This video helps to make it crystal clear. So big congrats to Mirai for landing the fist triple axel for team USA at the Olympics. xo – Christy Taylor
