Triple Axel Face

Triple Axel Face(1) The face you make before you become the first U.S. woman to land a triple axel at the Olympics. (2) The face you make after you realize all the years of training and sacrifice by you and your supportive loved ones culminates in a historical moment that no one can ever take away from you.

One of my favorite things about the Olympics is the honest reactions from the athletes that convey how much these moments mean to them. Mirai’s was easily one of my faves! Thank you for a great Olympics, Mirai!
