Mirai Nagasu, a two-time Olympian and the first American female to land a triple axel in the Olympics, recently proved that she’s still got it in a TikTok of her performing six consecutive double axels.
Nailed it: Nagasu, 28, can be seen performing six consecutive double axels at the Galleria Ice Skating Center in Dallas in the video she posted on Sunday.
Getty Images has officially released a formal statement where it apologized for the horrible mix up when it captioned Vietnamese-American actress Kelly Marie Tran on the photo of Japanese-American Olympic skater Mirai Nagasu and vice versa.
However, things didn’t go smoothly when they first published the statement online as the company made a crucial error for writing “Tan” instead of “Tran” – not just once, but twice, according to Huffington Post.
This is Kelly Marie Tran, Vietnamese American actress and breakout star of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, the latest in the Star Wars film franchise.
And this is Mirai Nagasu, Team USA’s figure skating queen who is of Japanese heritage.
Nagasu, who finished in 10th place, claimed earlier that the lack of hot water in the showers and waking up too early were partly to blame for her lackluster performance.
Japanese-American figure skater Mirai Nagasu just made history for Team America at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang on Sunday night by being the first American woman to ever land a triple axel at the Olympics.
