Nagasu competed in both the short and long programs at the 2019 Aurora Games.
Nagasu competed at the 2018 U.S. Figure Skating Championships and won the silver after placing second in both the short program and the free skate. She, with teammates Bradie Tennell and Karen Chen, were named to the 2018 US Winter Olympic Team for the 2018 Winter Olympics. It was Nagasu's second appearance in the Winter Olympics, after an 8-year absence.
At the 2018 Winter Olympics, Nagasu competed in the free skate portion of the figure skating team event. On February 11, 2018 during the team event free skate, Nagasu became the first American woman, and third woman overall, to land a triple Axel at an Olympic Games. The triple Axel jump allowed Nagasu to be the first and only woman to land eight clean triple jumps in a long program at World championship or Olympic competition. She landed one triple Axel, one triple Lutz, two triple flip jumps, one triple loop, one triple Salchow and two triple toe jumps. Because of the Zayak Rule, eight is the maximum number of triple jumps any skater can attempt in a long program. She won a bronze medal in the team event as part of the U.S. team. She placed 10th in the Ladies event, during which she again planned eight triple jumps but landed only six.
Nagasu skipped the 2018-2019 season. Later Nagasu revealed that she underwent a surgery to repair her hip, which had bothered her since she started practicing the triple Axel jump.
In April 2018, Nagasu was announced as one of the celebrities to compete on season 26 of Dancing with the Stars. She was partnered with professional dancer Alan Bersten.
Nagasu began the 2017-2018 season at the 2017 CS U.S. International Figure Skating Classic, placing third in the short program and second in the free skate, and winning her the silver medal. She lands the triple Axel jump for the first time. She then competed in the 2017 Japan Open as part of Team North America and came in fourth in personal and third for team. For the Grand Prix series, she was assigned to compete at the 2017 Rostelecom Cup and the 2017 NHK Trophy. She finished ninth at the Rostelecom Cup, and fourth at the NHK Trophy.
Nagasu has worked on improving her jumps to avoid under-rotations. She has added a triple Axel jump to her programs, landing two fully rotated triple Axel jumps at the 2017 CS U.S. International Figure Skating Classic with the negative grade of execution. She is the second US woman skater to have landed a triple Axel jump internationally after Tonya Harding. In 2018, she became the first U.S. woman skater to have landed the triple Axel in an Olympic competition.
Nagasu suffered from an equipment malfunction at the 2016 U.S. Championships; her right boot (her landing foot) ripped during the short program and remained loose through the rest of the program. Nagasu was nonetheless able to complete her skate, and the boot was repaired in time for the free skate. She ultimately finished fourth, winning the pewter medal, and was assigned to compete at the 2016 Four Continents Championships.
At the 2016 Four Continents Championships in Taipei, Nagasu placed third in the short program and second in the free skate. Her combined score of 193.86 at the competition earned her a new personal best, and won her the silver medal behind Satoko Miyahara. In March, she was called up to replace the injured Polina Edmunds at the 2016 World Championships in Boston, where she finished 10th.
For the 2016-17 skating season, Mirai Nagasu was assigned to 2016 Skate Canada International and 2016 NHK Trophy. Before her GP events, she won two Challenger Series medals. Bronze at the 2016 Lombardia Trophy and gold at the 2016 Autumn Classic, where she scored a new personal best short program, with a score of 73.40. She was also assigned to 2017 Four Continents. She was fifth after the short with a score of 62.91, after she under-rotated her triple loop. However, she fought back and was 2nd in the free with a score of 132.04, a personal best, and finally finished 3rd with a total score of 194.95, another personal best.
At the 2015 U.S. Championships, Nagasu skated a solid short program and was in fourth place going into the long program. However, she placed 12th in the free skate after crashing into the boards and injuring her knee. She received several downgrades for under rotations on her jumps. Nagasu finished 10th overall.
In the spring of 2015, Nagasu briefly worked with Alexei Mishin on her jumps when he and his students went to temporarily train at the Broadmoor Skating Club, the rink Nagasu trains at, in Colorado Springs, for a week due to the lack of ice time they were getting in Saint Petersburg.
For the 2015–16 Grand Prix series, Nagasu was assigned to compete at 2015 NHK Trophy. She opened her season by finishing fifth at 2015 Nebelhorn Trophy. She then won the 2015 Ice Challenge. In late November, Nagasu finished fifth at the 2015 NHK Trophy.
Nagasu won the bronze medal at the 2014 U.S. Championships behind gold medalist Gracie Gold and silver medalist Polina Edmunds. Although the United States was able to send a three-woman team to the ladies' singles figure skating event at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, U.S. Figure Skating awarded the third position on the team to Wagner despite her fourth-place finish behind Nagasu, due to Wagner's stronger international competitive record. It was reported in the January 12, 2014 televised broadcast of the championship that Nagasu would file a protest of the association's decision. However, The New York Times later reported that, after inquiring about the appeal process, Nagasu accepted the decision of U.S. Figure Skating, although she disagreed with it. Nagasu was assigned to the Four Continents Championships, placing tenth.
In March 2014, Nagasu moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado to train after feeling the need for a "change in scenery" and chose Tom Zakrajsek as her coach a month later.
Nagasu was assigned to the 2014 Skate America and 2014 Rostelecom Cup for the Grand Prix series. She started off her season by finishing sixth at U.S. International Figure Skating Classic. At Skate America, Nagasu finished sixth. At Rostelecom Cup, she finished fourth.
Nagasu was listed as the alternate to the 2013 ISU World Team Trophy.
Nagasu began the 2013–14 season at the 2013 Finlandia Trophy, finishing fourth. She was eighth at her first Grand Prix event, the 2013 NHK Trophy. At the 2013 Rostelecom Cup, she placed fourth in the short program, third in the free skate, and won the bronze medal.
Nagasu finished seventh at the 2012 U.S. National Championships. At the time, she was coached several days a week by Frank Carroll in Cathedral City, California (near Palm Springs), and also worked with Rafael Arutyunyan in Lake Arrowhead, with Galina Barinova in Artesia, and on her own in Pasadena.
In April 2012, Nagasu ended her collaboration with Carroll because of the distance to the training location. Carroll said: "The two-hour drive each way was too much. She was exhausted by the time she got here." She decided to be coached by Wendy Olson and Amy Evidente at the Pickwick Ice rink in Burbank, California, which was a short drive from her home.
In the 2012–13 season, Nagasu won the bronze medal at the 2012 Finlandia Trophy. At the 2012 Cup of China, she placed third in the short program after she under-rotated her triple-triple combination. In the free skate, she had several under-rotated jumps and placed fourth in that segment, finishing fourth overall. Nagasu had the opportunity to compete at the 2012 NHK Trophy after Alissa Czisny withdrew. She won the bronze medal at the event.
At U.S. Nationals, Nagasu was in first place after the short program with a small lead. In the long program, she received zero points for a botched flying sit spin and finished third overall to win the bronze medal. Nagasu was assigned to the 2011 Four Continents, where she won the bronze medal with an overall score of 189.46. She was the first alternate to the 2011 World Championships but did not compete despite Rachael Flatt being injured.
Nagasu began the 2011–12 season at the Nebelhorn Trophy, where she won her first senior international title. At her 2011–12 Grand Prix assignments, Nagasu came in fifth at the 2011 Skate Canada International and won the silver medal at the 2011 Cup of China.
In January 2010, Nagasu competed at U.S. Nationals, where she placed first in the short program with a score 70.06 points. She placed third in the free skate, winning the silver medal behind Rachael Flatt. Following the event, she was nominated to represent the United States at the 2010 Winter Olympics and was also selected to compete at the World Championships along with Flatt.
During the 2010 Winter Olympics, she placed sixth in the short program. She placed fifth in the free skate and fourth overall, earning new personal bests for the free skate score and combined total. At Worlds, Nagasu led the short program with a personal best score of 70.40 points, positioned ahead of Mao Asada by 2.32 points. Ranked eleventh in the free skate, she finished in seventh place overall.
A stress fracture kept Nagasu out of training for a month during the summer. She returned to practice in September 2010. Nagasu started her 2010–11 Grand Prix season finishing fourth at the 2010 Cup of China. At the 2010 Trophée Eric Bompard, she placed second in the short program. In the free skate, Nagasu had trouble on her layback spin. She still earned enough points to win the free skate, scoring 109.07, and won the silver overall, her first senior Grand Prix medal.
