What a fricking queen.
She shouldn't say that she is the only one to do it because Tonya Harding is the other one
listen again to the video. at the 25 second mark she says internationally it is tonya harding and her to land the triple axel.
That harness looks so fun.
and i’m having trouble with my single axel
I know that axels are hard, especially triple axels, but I thought that most professional skaters included them in their routines?
Cat Lady triple axels are common in mens skating but are rare in ladies skating
What's funny is that Tonya didn't have any of this fancy shit and she still jumped so much better. She was just so special, imagine if she had had this fancy training, she'd be doing quad axels 😂
DeathBecomesHer what's funny is that you think Tonya would actually do quad axels
Tonya isn't skating anymore, and for obvious reasons. Get over it.
I met Marai before she is so nice
Don’t forget Kimmie Meissner was the 2nd US Lady to land a triple axel at competition then 3rd was Mirai
I believe Kimmie landed hers at US nationals in 2005 which was not international competition. And apparently Kimmie's was under rotated per international standards I have read. I think Mirai meant to say 2nd american lady to land the 3A in international competition. Tonya being the 1st in 1991 at the Worlds (she landed it first at Minneapolis at US nationals but that was not international competition).
We are now up to 9 ladies who have landed a triple axel in international competition. Alysa Liu the new US ladies champion at 13 years old landed 2 triple axels in her LP. She landed one at the Asian open in 2018 which was international. We are now up to 3 ladies landing a 3A at the olympics, Midori, Mao and Mirai. there is a distict possibility both Rika and Alysa will land a 3A at the 2022 olympics. Credit Midori probably the greatest technical skater ever for starting the push forward in ladies skating by landing the 1st triple axel internationally at the NHK in 1988 and then Tonya landing it at the 1991 US championships. Mirai has joined a select group and it is well deserved.
Shes so naturally pretty
I went ice skating last night and broke my wrist can I get some likes. My wrist reallyyyyyy hurts
She’s a major inspiration for me 💖😁,
People don't realise how aerodynamically difficult this sport is
'im going for a jump no one else is going for'Russian juniors: hMHmmmmm?
She's so beautiful!
What`s the name of that equipment on 1:14 which improves the jumps? Answer please if you know.
I just watched a 12 year old girl do it I'm proud of everyone who can land it it's such an amazing experience
Can you do a video on how to be able to cross your feet in a axel jump? I have the jump just need to cross my feet but it’s hard.
2 wordsTonya Harding IS BOSS
I’m dizzy... 🤢
I am 10 years old and can do all my doubles except for a double axel. I am Star 8 in Canadian skating.
lsr asr tank you! That is my goal! But, now I have landed my double axel and I am working on triple toe loop
keep at it. maybe we will be watching you perform at the 2026 olympics.
that's amazing! good for you :)
0:12 Me on a double flip.
Wow!!!! I can do a single axel, but u can do a triple axel amazing
My childhood dream is to become a Olympic ice skater I’ve never even been on ice2 months later and I can skate! I’m officially taking skating lessons! I’m so happy where I am at the momenta, and I’m looking forward to start doing jumps,spins and all that stuff!
Who else came here to see how yuzuru hanyu does this thing like 3 times each competition
I hope to be a skater like you, yesterday it was my first time to do a pirouette with me leggs crossed, sorry for my bad English, I'm Swedish ❤️🇸🇪
Omg that’s. At the broadmoar I go there every competition
I play hockey but I occasionally jump around 😂
That beilman though 💕
Soo amaziiiing , Mirai !!!
Ummm. I can’t even do two
*I am going for a jump that no one else is going for*Sees the load of figure skaters at Pyeongchang 2018 that did quad and triple axels
disagree with me and exactly which other female skaters performed quad and triple axels? Just curious 😉
Her scorpion in the thumbnail is better than mine....crying
Ok your so good I’m practicing my 2 axel!!!!
what an airhead.
i literally sprained my ankle trying to stand on the ice
Love ya💖 can’t believe u did it I’m soooo proud x
its such an insane jump jeez, she's such a strong woman I love her
WOW IM A PRO SKATER TOO
You go girl!! I'm so excited for her
them pianos tho (the skates by Edea but are $$$)
For those who don't know, those harnesses have been around for 50 years. This is not new.
Wow. Just Tonya Harding and her. She had more training and help tho. Tonya just did that triple axel on her own.
She did it!! So proud of her ❤️
I love this girl sm💞💞💘
Neuroscience is leading the way on these complex moves. We program them into the brain each day with my athletes. This work is excellent. Call Coach Lorie Pulliam to know more at Inner Mind Sports.com. In Canada we are on the threshold of this research and would love to have figure skaters involved in the horizontal sightline. Mirai is a pleasure to watch.
She may not have landed it in the free skate but she is still such a talented skater, hoping for her to come back and get the gold in 2022.
js-toyna had to do it on her own without any help like this......epic
And she did it perfectly
There she is doing all this fancy spinning when I can’t even take a step without falling over
First step is marching on the ice and using the wall for balance. Once you can march comfortably and balanced, then skating should be little easier. I started skating 3 years ago when I was 32 and it took 2 people to get me over to my first class. If I can do it, you can too.
Can’t relate lol
And then I think about Yuri..
The amount of comments saying “well Tonya Harding didn’t have all that equipment but she could do it” to put mirai down is just? So stupid? Congrats to tonya but she’s not skating anymore for obvious reasons and Mirai is our Olympian athlete as of right now. Don’t put down her achievements dang
@DeathBecomesHer lol What truth? You seriously think jump harness werent around in the 80's and 90's. You seriously don't think Tonya used them? Ignorance. Too bad Tonya had horrible morals and sportmanship. And no she is not the best jumper and definately not a top skater.
They had the jump harness back in Tonya's days. 🙄Mirdori Ito and Tonya were muscles which takes away from being graceful on the ice. This skater is graceful and getting her jumps without heavy weight lifting.
DeathBecomesHer Tonya's accomplishments do not take away Mirai's accomplishments. Also, It's actually not the truth because they did have this equipment back then, so sorry sweetheart.
It's not putting her down to point out the truth. If that makes her look bad, oh well. Tonya's not skating anymore but that doesn't take away her accomplishments and the fact that she is the best American woman jumper in history. Sorry sweetheart ♥️🙏
They did have that equipment during Tonya's era. In fact they show lots of video of people using harnesses in many different ways in the 80s.
Didn't Patrick Chan attempt this?
It was so thrilling to watch her hit it at Pyeongchang!
Congrats! You just did land the jump :D
she did it!
This is so inspirational, congratulations on landing the Triple Axel Mirai!! Represent
God bless her
Such an incredible beautiful video! You go girl! My hero :)
Did she land the jump in competition?
yes she did
and she did it!!
I doubt tonya harding had to work this hard to do the triple axel.
SHE DID IT!!!
I’m a figure skater and I got my triple axel last year I am trying to be the first person to land the quadruple axel
Can't even roller blade
