Why the triple axel is such a big deal

Triple axels can turn skaters into legends. This is why. Watch the rest of Skate Week, and our other sports explainers, here: Subscribe to our channel! Note: The video states Mirai Nagasu was the second American to land a triple axel in competition (this was recorded before her Olympic success). In 2005, American Kimmy Miessner completed a triple axel in national competition, though not world competition. You can read about it here: Want to see Tonya' Harding's routine? You can find one version here: In this episode of Vox Almanac, Phil Edwards explores the triple axel and why it's such a big deal. The figure skating jump is legendary among ice skaters, from Tonya Harding's 1991 triple axel to modern icon Mirai Nagasu's attempts in competition. It turns out that the physics of the triple axel makes it a uniquely difficult jump — and one worth learning about. As a forward-edge jump, the mechanics of a triple axel requires technical acumen from skaters while they still try to maintain an artistically interesting performance. Pioneers like Midori Ito and Tonya Harding had to jump, ramp up rotation speed, and then land all while trying to look good. This effort set them apart from competitors like Nancy Kerrigan, but it wasn't easy to land a triple axel in competition. And that difficulty might be why the triple axel endures as the pinnacle of figure skating performance — and why it's sure to light up the 2018 Winter Olympics as well. is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

Leighton Meester Details Gossip Girl's 'Unhealthy' Environment

More Celebrity News ►► I think it’s safe to say we won’t get a Gossip Girl reunion anytime soon In the new issue of PorterEdit, Leighton Meester opens up about her experience working on the hit CW show, Gossip Girl, and admits that it wasn’t all rainbows and sunshine. In fact, some days, there wasn’t any sunshine at all. When talking about her filming schedule, Leighton revealed QUOTE "I would get there at 5 a.m. and leave at 8 p.m., A lot of days I didn't see the sun." Leighton also spoke about the effect being an overnight sensation had on her, admitting QUOTE "I was young when I started Gossip Girl. A lot more people were suddenly around and I was being looked at. If you don't have the right perspective, you could definitely be confused by people being that nice to you or judging you for behavior that's typical of a 20-, 21-year-old, making mistakes but having to make them very publicly, I'm not haunted by that time, but it's been interesting and helpful for me to look at it and examine it as an adult and go, 'I don't know if it was the healthiest environment.’” She then went onto talk about how Gossip Girl sped up her journey of figuring out who she was, adding QUOTE " I had to figure it out quickly and with not a completely developed mind to discern between what's real and what's not, who I can trust and who I can't," As for if she misses the show, Leighton revealed QUOTE "I wouldn't trade it for anything. It's sort of a time capsule. A lot of the questions that come from it are: 'Do you miss it?' 'Did you love what you wore?' And I understand that, but—and I say this with nothing but love—it is like saying, 'High school was an amazing time for you. Do you wish you could go back?' And the truth is, it was so special and such a unique, amazing experience, but no, I wouldn't wanna go back to it. I was a kid!" We can understand where she’s coming from, but as a die hard Gossip Girl fan myself, this makes me a little bummed. But right now it’s time for me to turn it over to you guys. What part of this interview surprised you most? Do you think Leighton will ever change her mind and want to do a reunion? Hit me with your thoughts down in the comments below.

If you have yet to tune into the 2018 Winter Olympics, you may want to rethink your priorities because Team U.S.A just set the bar pretty freaking high.

The tables have officially turned following last night’s figure skating competition in Pyeongchang when U.S. figure skater Mirai Nagasu, hailing from Arcadia, California, took the ice to perform her highly anticipated routine where she would attempt to land a triple axel.

And FYI guys, SHE LANDED IT. And not only did she land it, but she landed it with such poise and not a single wobble… why am I still talking? ROLL THE TAPES.

So not only has Mirai become the first American woman to land the triple axel in the Olympics, but she is the third EVER to accomplish the rare feat in the women’s free skate.

And I just have to point out that landing a triple axel in figure skating terms, is like… completing a Rubiks cube or like not making a fool of yourself on a first date, or IDK just something that’s nearly impossible.

The 24-year-old was the first to skate of the five women, and just 21 seconds in, set the tone for what would be the toughest competition to follow. Naturally this land, along with a flawless routine generated a standing ovation from the entire arena. Team U.S.A ended up taking home the bronze medal last night, but I’m thinking this personal feat for Mirai will go on to mean more than a medal ever will.

In some not-so-fortunate news, South Korean skater Yura Min suffered a wardrobe malfunction during her routine alongside her partner Alexander Gamelin, when the top of her outfit began slipping off her shoulders.

Without even blinking, she quickly adjusted her arms to prevent the leotard from slipping any further — oh, and all while continuing to crush her routine. Photos and videos quickly made their rounds on social media, causing panic among viewers, but thankfully Yura kept her composure, and Alexander even came to her rescue, helping pull her top back up before anything drastic were to really happen. Talk about one heck of a partner!

Seriously though, guys, I mean what I said when I mentioned that you HAVE to tune into the 2018 Olympics – these were just two examples of the craziness that has and undoubtedly will ensure over the next couple weeks, but right now I want to know what you thought of Mirai’s triple axel land so get to talking down here in the comments, and be sure to give team USA some love.

After that, click right over here to see all the rage on these fat unicorn cakes… seriously, I’m not making this up. Thanks for hanging out with me here on Newsfeed, I’m your girl Joslyn Davis and I’ll see you next time.
