    Only nine women in the world have ever landed the Triple Axel in competition, however, Tonya Harding and Kimmy Meissner do not count since theirs were landed in national or regional exhibitions. Of the other seven women who landed the Triple Axle in international competition, five of them are of pure 100% Japanese descent and two of them are Russian. Of the five Japanese women who landed the Triple Axle in International competition, three of them landed it in the Olympics: Midori Ito in 1992 Albertville Winter Olympics, Mao Asada in the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and Mirai Nagasu in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. Again, Tonya and Kimmy do not count, since theirs were not done in international competition. Also, Tonya is an ex-felon, who has been banned for life from U.S. Figure Skating, so her one-off, accidental fluke do not count.

    I had a lot of respect for her until she started talking s*** about her other teammates. Saying she was the reason they won the team bronze.
    Wow what a primadonna as who the hell does she think she is. That finishing 10th was just a jumping off point for Dancing With the Stars as in seriously lol.
    With that kind of attitude I hope she leaves figure skating for good. Team USA does not need someone like this representing their sport.
    Not taking away from her talent but making excuses for your own poor performance. Then taking cheap shots at your teammates is weak!! :/
