UCCS holds Olympics watch party for business student Mirai Nagasu

Here's What Bradie Tennell Had to Say About Her Uncharacteristic Fall

Karen Chen also had a slip in her program to finish with a scored of 65.90 and is in 10th place. Russian Federation occupies the top two spots with Alina Zagitova in first with 82.92, Yevgenia Medvedeva in second with 81.61 and Canada's Kaetlyn Osmond in third with 78.87.

But if that accomplishment weren't impressive enough on its own (and who would dare say it isn't?), consider this: Nagasu learned that jump at age 24.

It has been eight years since Nagasu has skated on Olympic ice, and she could not have had a better reopening debut.

"Every little girl wants to be in the Olympics", stated Eccarius. And, there's an interesting reason why many were shocked by her fall!

They responded with world records. So today I put my [bronze] medal in my pocket. She will skate against Medvedeva, who broke onto the skating scene at the Junior level. "All the battle is still ahead".

Mirai Nagasu cited Olympic medalists Lindsey Vonn and Shaun White as athletes who inspire her.

On Thursday, Zagitova went first, greeted by chants and cheers from the Russian fans desperate for that first gold. But she battled a cracked bone in her right foot this season and Zagitova emerged, eventually surpassing Medvedeva. "She did everything she could". She explained that the boot split and moisture had caused the blade to sink into her skate and affect the mounting. "It was not my best, but it was OK", she said.

Russia's Alina Zagitova won gold in the free skating event.

The last American woman to medal at the Olympics was Sasha Cohen, who won silver in 2006. The nation could have two straight after the free skate.

American Women's Ice Hockey Team Reach Olympic Final
The United States secured its place in its third straight gold medal game with a victory over Finland in the semifinals on Monday. The Canadians, she says, play a superior team game, are always prepared and have a well-established system that's tough to beat.

Tennell posted a season-best score of 68.94 points in her 2-minute, 50-second short program February 10, contributing to the US earning bronze in the team event. Another is looming heading to Friday's free skate to conclude Olympic figure skating. She was seventh Wednesday. Said Randall, it still doesn't feel real. When the women's competition begins Wednesday at the Pyeongchang Olympics, Mirai Nagasu, Bradie Tennell and Karen Chen will be trying to get the US back on the Winter Games podium for the first time since 2006. Among other things, Nagasu claimed credit for "saving" the the team figure skating competition, complained about her teammates using all the hot water at the Olympic Village and talked about her desire to be on "Dancing with the Stars". She believes this exhaustion is what may have caused her to make the little mistake, along with an entirely understandable case of the nerves. She led for 2 hours, 40 minutes until the upper echelon began skating and Japan's Kaori Sakamoto passed Tennell. However, she has one more chance to grab some hardware before she heads back home.

"It was definitely unexpected". We all make mistakes.

"This isn't what I wanted, but at the same time, you can't always have what you want". "I'm not going to lie".

"I attacked. I gave it everything".

An American finishing in the top 10 individually was "a huge accomplishment", Karen Chen said.

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

Nagasu said she was disappointed in her fall, but added, "If I would have done a double, I would have been more angry with myself for not going for it [.] you can fall and still get up and keep going".

I'm sure Daleman will enjoy reading that, once she is finished crying and blaming herself for letting down her family. "But I sold my program the best I could, got the most points I could and I'm proud of that". Prior to Nagasu's success, Tonya Harding had been the only American woman to attempt and complete a triple axel during an global competition. Getting that high will be a huge challenge.
