Why Mirai Nagasu's Olympics Earrings May Have Helped Her Land That Legendary Triple Axel

Figure skater Mirai Nagasu made history in Pyeongchang, South Korea, when she became the first American woman to land a triple axel at the Olympics. The insanely talented athlete certainly did her fair share of practice to flawlessly land the complex and risky trick (which requires three-and-a-half midair rotations, just FYI). But it looks like there was a secret weapon helping her power through the challenge when she glided onto the ice during the Olympics figure skating team event: her earrings.

Mirai accessorized her embellished red costume with a pair of gorgeous studs, which were put on display for all to see, thanks to her slicked-back updo. We got in touch with Sonia Hou, the LA-based jewelry designer who crafted Mirai's earrings, to hear more about how the studs played a role in helping the figure skater land that legendary triple axel.
