Adam Rippon had a funny answer about the Olympic experience after a 'spellbinding' performance that had the figure skating world buzzing

Figure Skating- Winter Olympics Day 3

The most notable nugget of Rippon's camera time came when he detailed how he spent the last Olympic games eating In-N-Out with US women's figure skater Mirai Nagasu.

Nagasu's triple axel was the first element of her routine.

The axel is considered so hard because it is the only jump in which the skater takes to the air while facing forward.

That's all commentator Tara Lipinski could say as she watched the United States' Mirai Nagasu land the triple axel during the ladies' free skate on Sunday. Tonya Harding landed the jump in 1991, as did Kimmie Meissner in 2005.

The Canadians held the lead with 63 points through the men's and women's free skates, and would not be caught.

While Canada won the gold medal for Team Skate event, the Americans took bronze behind Russian Federation - and Nagasu landed a season-best score of 137.53, and casually made history.

Nagasu, 24, was competing in the women's free skate in the team event on Monday when she landed the hard jump.

Even Kristi Yamaguchi, the former Team USA figure skater and Olympic champion, said she was shedding "tears of joy" over Nagasu's achievement.

So far, 2018 has turned out to be a completely different story for both Rippon and Nagasu who are roommates at the PyeongChang Olympics. "So much fun", Rippon said to NBC's Andrea Joyce. "I felt it was important to come out here and skate a very strong performance for the USA team".
