#MiraiEarnedIt, #MiraiToWorlds

American figure skater Mirai Nagasu, the 2008 U.S. national champion and the 4th-place finisher at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, has been denied a spot on the 2014 U.S. Olympic team. This comes despite her finishing 3rd at the 2014 national championships, with three berths available on the Olympic squad. It is the first time ever that the United States Figure Skating Association has passed over a skater in favor of a lower-finishing competitor when injury was not a factor.
