The 24-year-old Nagasu wasn't just the first American to land a triple axel at the Olympics, she was also only the second American woman to land the jump in an global competition.

American figure skater Mirai Nagasu on Sunday lit up the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea when she perfectly landed a triple axel. Eventually, he was bumped to third place as Canada's Patrick Chan put up a score of 179.75 after completing a hard routine that included a successful quad-toe followed by a triple-toe.

Nagasu became only the third woman to successfully complete the triple axel at the Olympics - the other two being Japanese skaters Midori Ito and Mao Asada.

The Canadians held the lead with 63 points through the men's and women's free skates, and would not be caught. Team Canada won the gold while Russian Federation earned silver in figure skating's team event.

The 24-year-old veteran is on something of a redemption tour at these Games after being controversially left off the 2014 Sochi team - despite finishing just off the podium in Vancouver in 2010.

Nagasu had finished third at the 2014 US Figure Skating Championships, but was passed over for fourth-place finisher Ashley Wagner, who had a stronger worldwide resume.

"We were eating In-N-Out because we were so upset that we weren't at the Olympic games", Rippon said.

Nagasu homed in on the triple axel. "So much fun", Rippon said to NBC's Andrea Joyce. But figure skating's scoring system rewards difficulty.
