13-year-old Alysa Liu becomes youngest ever US figure skating champ
Alysa Liu became the youngest person to win an individual title at the US figure skating championships, stealing the show on Friday night, January 26th, 2019 with two triple axels and taking the title more than six months before her 14th birthday.
Defending champion Bradie Tennell, the leader after Thursday’s short program, fell during her free skate and Liu, skating immediately after, took advantage, breezing through her routine after the two early triple axels, one of which was in combination.
The Bay Area prodigy’s skate earned 143.62 points, enough to overcome Tennell. When her overall score of 217.51 was announced, she put her hands over her face, overcome with emotion.
