All of the figure skating firsts from PyeongChang 2018

History was made in PyeongChang in all sorts of ways, but the U.S. figure skaters put their name in the books at these Winter Games.

Here’s a look at all the ways figure skaters from Team USA pushed the sport forward in 2018.

Nathan Chen is the first skater to hit five clean quads in a free skate at the Olympics

Nathan Chen was disappointed in his short program, where he took a few unexpected tumbles. With medal contention seeming out of the picture, Chen was able to freely skate without pressure.

Despite missing his first quad attempt, Chen nailed the subsequent five to move all the way up to fifth place.

Mirai Nagasu is the first U.S. woman to do a triple Axel at the Olympics

It was this moment that really put the Americans in medal contention for the team event. A move rarely done by any competitors at all, Nagasu laid it all on the line and perfectly executed her triple Axel.

Germans dejected after coming so close to gold medal

GANGNEUNG, South Korea (AP) — The Germans stood on the ice scowling as the Russians celebrated a gold medal that was so nearly theirs.

How close?

Recap: OAR def. GER 4-3 (OT) 

They were 56 seconds away from Olympic gold before losing 4-3 to the “Olympic athletes from Russia” in overtime Sunday. After no one outside their locker room gave them a chance in a tournament where the NHL stars stayed away, the Germans came within a minute of clock time from gold for a country playing in the men’s final for the first time.

“I think if you are that close, you are disappointed right after,” forward Gerrit Fauser said. “But it will take a few hours to realize what we have done here. Obviously it is a big success for Germany, but right after a loss, when it is a close game like that, it is tough.”
