    Why are people debating whether she is 'Asian' or 'fake American'? Ethnically Japanese, holds American citizenship. She use to hold Japanese citizenship but gave that up at age 22. Is this hard to understand? Just appreciate her amazing and inspiring skating.

      Mirai Nagasu was born and raised in the US her whole entire life. She did have dual Japanese-American citizenship at one point, but she relinquished her Japanese citizenship at the age of 22 because Japanese law only allows dual citizenship up to that age. She is just as American as anybody else on Team USA.

    She’s so beautiful and did a truly amazing routine but will people please stop saying she was the first American woman to do a triple axel? The first American woman to do that was Tonya Harding and she did 2 in just one rotinue.

      They're not saying she is the first American woman to do a triple axel. They're saying she is the first American woman to do it at the Olympics. It even says that under the video description.

      Mirai is the first American woman to land the triple Axel at the Olympics. Tonya was the first one to land it in competition, but not at the Olympics.

    Its very difficult to pull off. Second only to the mythical Iron Lotus in Doubles.
    Best of luck. 😂😆 Damn it if I wasn't so mad at the Korean govt I might have had a lot of fun there.

      what's really interesty is that when asked about the Iron Lotus in a live reddit session, Mirai joked that she would like to attempt the maneuver XD
