Dutch Breaks Record, American Lands Jump, Norway Leads Medal Count

Red white and blue Rippon has taken issue with Pence over his decision to campaign on a platform that recommended gay conversion therapy to combat AIDs back in 2000

"Four years ago I was crying with Adam Rippon because we both didn't make the team", she said, referring to the men's singles skater. Not about to miss out again, she doubled down on her training. And she's already made her mark.

Day four is underway at the 2018 Winter Olympics, and things are just starting to heat up.

Nagasu also drew lots of compliments from fellow American skaters, incuding Kristi Yamaguchi, Scott Hamilton and Meryl Davis. That should be enough to make her a star of the 2018 Winter Olympics, but her amusing tweets are earing her just as much attention. In fact, she completed a total of nine triple jumps.

GANGNEUNG, South Korea - It took the talent, grit and artistry of eight American figure skaters over three days of competition at the Gangneung Ice Arena to deliver the United States a bronze medal in the team event at the PyeongChang Olympics.

On Sunday, Nagasu's move helped push the Americans over the edge to snare the bronze medal as Canada took gold and Russian Federation silver.

Yet on Monday, 24 year old Mirai Nagasu completed it during the team event because she won't let physics and velocity hold her down. "But to tell myself 'No, I'm going to go for it 100 percent and not pull back, ' that was really special for me". "To nail it the way I did - and even out of the corner of my eye, I could see my team-mates standing in excitement".

"It's historical and something no one can take away from me", Nagasu said afterward.

Mirai Nagasu's Olympic career has only just begun.

Nagasu became the first U.S. woman to land a triple Axel in Olympic competition, in a powerful performance that brought a score of 137.53 points - a new personal best, according to the U.S. Figure Skating Association.

Figure skating fans applauded Nagasu's incredible accomplishment.

She even garnered praise from celebrities.

Together, Rippon and Nagasu shined as they kept the United States alive during Monday's portion of the figure skating team event.

So thrilled for @mirai_nagasu becoming the first woman from the @TeamUSA to land a Triple Axel in @Olympics competition.

Also for her ideal skate on Olympic Ice! "To want to share your ideas and feel like people might not like them".

Brian Boitano, the 1988 Olympic figure skating gold medalist, announced he was gay in 2013, after President Obama named him to the official U.S. delegation to the 2014 Sochi Olympics. So what makes this jump so elusive?

An axel is a required element in today's skating routines-you can't win a medal without it.

Norwegian speed skater Axel Paulsen invented the axel in 1882. Because a skater takes off for an axel skating forward and lands it skating backward, though, there's really an extra half-rotation in the jump. That I'm different, and I think on some level we all feel sort of different and when we are embraced for who we are and speaking our minds it's awesome. "Unfortunately, she just wasn't able (to) land it at the Olympics".
