Denis Ten tweeted today:

@mirai_nagasu landed couple of nice triple axels today. ;)

Of course, I know that the next question/comment will be, "yes, but were they fully rotated". But it is something.

I guess that we would have to ask Denis Ten who tweeted it. I wonder how Frank would feel about his doing so. :confused:

Frank Carroll directed Mirai to try a few 3A in a Nationals practice in Greensboro so it's not a secret that she's working on the jump. This is the time of year (beginning of the off season) to be working on the "big tricks."

Mirai's 2a is really big and strong, and she has worked on the 3a in the past and it looked pretty close, so this news doesn't really surprise me. I'm really excited tho and hope some videos come out soon!

It has been reported (http://web.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20110304&content_id=16817568&vkey=ice_news) that Adelina Sotnikova has been practicing triple axels. Since Tuktamisheva has not yet performed a triple axel in international competition, one could say Sotnikova is on equal footing in that regard. It will be interesting to see which one of them can accomplish this feat first.

Consider the source... ;)

Anyway, I think it's great that Mirai and other young skaters are pushing themselves technically :)

when Tiffany Chin was landing the 3x in training, was she under Frank or Mr Nicks at the time?
