      Wade B You racist dotard...
      1. Mirai is American... Not only a citizen, but native-born
      2. All three Ladies who've landed ratified 3As on Olympic ice have been Asian -- Midori Ito (JPN), Mao Asada (JPN), and now Mirai Nagasu (USA)

      She isn’t the first asian to do the triple axel. She is the first asian American to do it. Mao Usada also did the triple axel in 2010 in the short program

      There's always that one xenophobic idiot that just has to project their simple-mindedness onto the public.
      You seriously couldn't help yourself, could you? The last time I checked, people didn't compete as representatives of their race.
      An American is not defined by what they look like. And Asia is not a nation. Your ignorance is astounding.
