Kimmie Meissner landed exactly one triple Axel, which in today's world would not have been ratified as such, as it was clearly not fully rotated. I do not know that she even made a real attempt at it again after those 2005 Nationals. As for Michelle and Tara, yes, they had serious physical consequences. Tara never competed again after she won Olympics at age 15 due to being in extreme pain, and she went on to have major hip surgery. Michelle Kwan competed in serious pain for the last 3-4 years of her career, and also went on to have major hip surgery. We also cannot forget the serious foot injury she had when she was 17, from over training those 3/3s. Mirai Nagasu just had major hip surgery. This is not a rare occurrence, and many skaters end up with serious injuries.Skaters, both boys/men and girls/ladies, have been attempting 3Axels and quads for a long time now. Surya Bonaly, Miki Ando, Sasha Cohen all attempted quads. Midori Ito, Tonya Harding and Kimmie Meissner did triple axels. Midori, Tara Lipinski, Michelle Kwan--along with many others--were doing difficult 3-3 combinations from a very young age. How are they doing now? Have they suffered long term consequences?
