Vídeo Why the triple axel is such a big deal

Triple axels can turn skaters into legends. This is why.\n\nWatch the rest of Skate Week, and our other sports explainers, here: http://bit.ly/2FfxM17\n\nSubscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO\n\nNote: The video states Mirai Nagasu was the second American to land a triple axel in competition (this was recorded before her Olympic success). In 2005, American Kimmy Miessner completed a triple axel in national competition, though not world competition.

The figure skating jump is legendary among ice skaters, from Tonya Harding's 1991 triple axel to modern icon Mirai Nagasu's attempts in competition. It turns out that the physics of the triple axel makes it a uniquely difficult jump — and one worth learning about.\n\nAs a forward-edge jump, the mechanics of a triple axel requires technical acumen from skaters while they still try to maintain an artistically interesting performance. Pioneers like Midori Ito and Tonya Harding had to jump, ramp up rotation speed, and then land all while trying to look good. This effort set them apart from competitors like Nancy Kerrigan, but it wasn't easy to land a triple axel in competition.\n\nAnd that difficulty might be why the triple axel endures as the pinnacle of figure skating performance — and why it's sure to light up the 2018 Winter Olympics as well.\n\nVox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

The 32-year-old prince who’s shaking up Saudi Arabia
This young prince is transforming Saudi Arabia and the Middle East.\n\nListen to this episode of Worldly – Vox's weekly podcast on the most important foreign policy and national security stories in the world – for more context on MBS' shakeup: http://bit.ly/2E1c2mo \n\nSubscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO\n\nMohammad bin Salman was designated as Saudi Arabia's new crown prince in June 2017. Since then, he has rapidly consolidated power and led Saudi Arabia towards some progressive reforms, such as granting women the right to drive. He also has plans to privatize certain segments of the economy, with the goal of reducing Saudi Arabia's economic dependency on oil. These changes, along with a suppression of Saudi Arabia's religious Right, could potentially begin to destabilize one of the Middle East's most powerful nations.\n\nVox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.
