Before Making History With A Triple Axel In The Olympics, Mirai Nagasu Was An Avalanche Ice Girl

Before @mirai_nagasu was landing triple axels, she was a @Avalanche Ice Girl during the 2015-16 season. #9Sports

Nagasu quickly saw the tweet and responded with the perfect, and logical, reply.

Gotta pay for skating somehow! 😂

“You used to clean the ice, now you own it, ” appropriately wrote one Twitter commenter.

Later in the day, the Colorado Avalanche also sent well wishes to their former employee.

Mirai Nagasu is the first ever American woman to land a triple axel in Olympic competition.

And it was so, so awesome. #GoAvsGo

Of course, the Avs ice girls were already well aware, a month before the Winter Olympics, that they had someone special to root for in PyeongChang.

Congratulations to our former Ice Girl Mirai on qualifying for the #WinterOlympics!

Good luck in South Korea! #BestOfUS

In addition to already earning a medal at the Olympic Games, the 24-year-old Nagasu has been righteously fangirling on social media over some of the attention she’s gotten from celebrities.

Wow!! @mirai_nagasu is making history !! 🌟#OlympicWinterGames

I watched Home Again on the way to the Olympics and I know it’s a movie but I wished you were my mom. You’re my hero. ❤
