A new Olympic medal for Japan

A new Olympic medal for Japan

Japanese figure skating Mao Asada won a silver medal yesterday in figure skating. She became the first woman to land a triple Axel three times in one Olympics.

Asada, the 2008 world champion and the only female who regularly executes the 3.5-rotation jump in competition, nailed one in the short program and two in free skating in her debut Olympics.

The final standing was gold for Korea, silver for Japan and bronze for Canada
