Figure Skater Alysa Liu Made History With a Triple Axel at US National Championships 2019

Figure Skater Alysa Liu Made History With a Triple Axel at US National Championships 2019

Remember how Mirai Nagasu landed that triple axel at the 2018 Olympic Games and the entire world cheered?

Well, another history making moment just happened at the 2019 U.S. Figure Skating Championships with 13-year-old figure skater Alysa Liu.

Alysa, who is currently in second place after the short program yesterday (January 24), landed a triple axel, too!

You might be saying, why is this important? Because she’s only the THIRD PERSON EVER to land it at Nationals in the ladies’ competition – and the YOUNGEST, too!

“I was actually really happy I did a triple axel in the short because it’s nationals, so I was really happy,” Alysa shared.

Her next goal? A quad!

Bradie Tennell and Mariah Bell, who are in first and third place at the moment, are also pictured below.

Figure Skater Bradie Tennell Has Super Long Hair & Only Cuts It Once In a While For This Inspiring Reason

Figure Skater Bradie Tennell Has Super Long Hair & Only Cuts It Once In a While For This Inspiring Reason

There’s a reason that Bradie Tennell has super long hair and it’s truly inspiring.

The 20-year-old Olympic figure skater revealed that she has long hair so she can cut and donate it!

“It’s down to my butt,” Bradie shares about her blonde locks, and didn’t get her first haircut until she was 13. “It was down to about my calves.”

Once Bradie cuts it, she donates it to an organization that makes wigs for people who lost their hair to illness: “Then I grow it back out and I donate it again.”

“The first time I cut it, I cut off 21 inches,” she remembers. “Then I waited about a year to cut it again and I cut off about 16 inches.”

Be sure to watch Bradie perform tonight in the ladie’s free skate at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics @ 8PM ET/PT on NBC.

Mirai Nagasu isn’t only inspiring the entire USA right now at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics — she’s also inspiring her teammates Karen Chen and Bradie Tennell.

Just before the short program competition, Mirai, Karen and Bradie all sat down for a press conference where the younger two opened up about how Mirai has inspired them on, and off the ice — especially with that triple axel.

“When she nailed the triple axel, I jumped up screaming,” Bradie remembered, speaking of the team event where Team USA earned the bronze medal. “It was just incredible.”

Karen added, “She will inspire so many younger skaters that the impossible is possible. I think that I see a future [where] all of us could potentially have a triple axel as long as we have the grit like Mirai.”

Mirai joked moments later, “I’m available for lessons.”

But the triple axel isn’t just what Karen and Bradie like about Mirai.

“Just kind of watching how [Mirai] interacts with people and the way she handles herself,” Bradie adds. “I must confess to trying to be a little bit like her.”

The ladies’ free skate will take place Thursday, February 22nd on NBC.
