Mirai Nagasu Made Olympic History This Weekend & Celebs Are All About It
American figure skater Mirai Nagasu came to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, to win. And that’s exactly what she did.
Nagasu made Olympic history yesterday when she became the first American woman to land a triple axel and, naturally, celebrities (and the entire U.S.) are in awe.
Reese Witherspoon took to Twitter to congratulate Nagasu on snagging the bronze medal.
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. ❤️ https://t.co/LRHEMEXroE— Mirai Nagasu (@mirai_nagasu) February 12, 2018
And the figure skater responded in an appropriate manner.
Do we smell a new friendship blossoming?
Josh Gad, who knows a thing or two about ice, also cheered on Nagasu with five applause emojis. That’s a lot.
