"Women" or "Ladies?" At the Winter Olympics, that depends on the sport

"Women" or "Ladies?" At the Winter Olympics, that depends on the sport

Mirai Nagasu, 24, made history earlier this month when she became the first American woman to land the hard triple axel in Olympic competition.

Russian ice skater Alina Zagitova, 15, is leading the program with a score of 82.92.

Nagasu has already made plenty of headlines for her work in the team event, becoming the first US woman to ever land a triple axel at the Olympics.

But the United States team was never behind Italy in any of the eight rounds of the team event, according to USA Today. "I have trouble imagining how someone can stay in that shape for a very long time", she said. Mirai's jump helped propel Team USA to a bronze medal in skating. Tennell will skate first at approximately 8:08pm ET, while Nagasu skates the in No. 20 spot and Chen debuts at No. 22. Tuesday night's primetime coverage will feature the women's short program skate, which will be followed by the women's free skate and gold medal final during Thursday's primetime. "I said, Mirai, you did it when it counted".

At age five, Tennell was obsessed with skating, however, "This kid couldn't jump on two feet", her mom admitted. "We each struggle with our individual obstacles", Chen said. Indeed, she didn't suffer from any other missteps during her program, and she's now sitting in a very respectable ninth place despite the fall.

The party at Matt Denny's Restaurant from 5-9 p.m.is organized by the Pasadena Figure Skating Club.

Nagasu placed fourth at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games, and didn't make it to the 2014 Sochi games.

She looked relieved as she finished the program, skating exhaustedly across the ice, bending over and with her arms flopping like a rag doll.

Watching the free skate program was unnecessary to figure out how the women's individual figure skating competition ended for the United States. I've gotten some date requests, which is kind of cool I guess.

First it was Russian mercenaries who were apparently killed in a February 7 clash with U.S-led coalition forces in eastern Syria . Analysts believe the latest deployment is likely to send a warning to countries such as the USA against intervention in Syria .

Meanwhile, the Americans who once dominated the sport have been forced to play catch-up, just like the rest of the world.

There was no mention of another Winter Olympic appearance and, aside from her "Dancing with the Stars" ambitions, Nagasu has been vague about what her future plans entail. "Only slightly bummed I'm not skiing it today cause we have 4 girls who are ready to hammer down and I can't wait to watch!"

Chen hung onto her opening triple lutz, but was out of position to do her planned triple toe for a combination.

Ever since I saw the movie, "I, Tonya", I've been obsessed figure skating - particularly the triple axel jump. The decision to train for four more years will have financial implications for her family, logistical implications for the entirety of her mid-20s, and physical implications for a body she's already put through enough triple axels to give her achy joints for years to come.

"For us, Italy placing fourth in the team event with all these big strong nations was such an unbelievable accomplishment".

"If you keep believing in yourself and keep on fighting - it's not always easy but when you've passed a tunnel you always find light and sunshine".

"The flow of my skating is a big thing I need to work on", she said. "Many did not understand why she wouldn't pull through because it was in her home country, and she said you will strongly feel when it is time to stop".
