Bradie Tennell, Mirai Nagasu, and Karen Chen will all speak to the United States in the 2018 Winter Olympics! See photographs of the skaters going to Pyeongchang!
Group USA has an authority Olympic figure skating group! Bradie Tennell, 19, Mirai Nagasu, 24, and Karen Chen, 18, will all make a beeline for Pyeongchang, South Korea to contend in the 2018 Winter Olympics! The three ladies were picked after they each caught the best three spots at the ladies’ national rivalry that wrapped up on Jan. 7.
While the choice to pick a lineup arranged by the official rankings bodes well, it isn’t the way it’s dependably been done previously. Four years back, the U.S. Figure Skating’s global board supplanted Mirari, who came in third, with Ashley Wagner, 26, who completed fourth. Ashley barely passed up a major opportunity from the best three once more in 2018, yet this time her score kept her out of contending — yet she will return as the primary exchange.
The three ladies who will compete for gold amid the Games from Feb. 9 to Feb. 25 will be new faces for the group. Ashley, Gracie Gold and Polina Edmunds repped the United States in Sochi, which means the new gathering of young ladies will be a completely unexpected group in comparison to that of 2014’s. While Bradie, Mirai, and Karen have plainly endeavored to be the place they are, each of them is somewhat of an amazing pick. Bradie, who experienced pressure cracks before, asserted the bronze in Nov. 2017’s Skate America rivalry, which was likewise her first historically speaking Grand Prix. Mirai has just won one national title, which was 10 years back in 2008. She additionally came in fourth when she contended in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. While Karen’s fall season was somewhat disillusioning, she won the 2017 national title. In any case, paying little mind to their past, they’ve all ascended to the best and we can hardly wait to cheer them!
We can hardly wait to see these ladies grandstand their athletic gifts in South Korea one month from now! Navigate the exhibition above to see more photographs of the skaters!
