I haven't seen the movie and don't quite follow the connection to the WNBA, but only eight women have ever performed a triple axel in competition. Midori Ito was the first in 1988 and Tonya Harding was the second in 1991. Here they all are:

Five of the eight are of Japanese extraction.


Mirai Nagasu just landed the triple Axel in the Olympics, becoming only the third woman (and first American) to do so (at the Olympics).

Rika Kihira, who is on the list, landed a triple Axel-triple toe combination at the most recent Junior Grand Prix Final, the first skater to do so.
