The Winter Games have finally arrived, and of course many of us here at The Collective are keeping our eyes on every aspect of figure skating. There are still several days left, with many more figure skating events, but I’ve already got some favorite routines that I want everyone to watch.
1.) Mirai Nagasu is the first US woman to land a triple axel at the Olympics!
I couldn’t find the full routine online because the world hates me, but try to find it if you can! Mirai has just made history with this amazing jump. She’s the third woman to land it at the Olympic Games, as well as the first American woman to do so.
2.) Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir Free Dance to “Moulin Rouge”
This video is from Nationals, but it’s the same awesome routine that they performed flawlessly a few days ago in Pyeongchang.
3.) Miu Suzaki and Ryuichi Kihara of Japan skate to “Yuri on Ice”
Yes, you read that right. Watch on, friends.
