Does Olympic skater Mirai Nagasu have 'USA' tattooed on her leg?

Mirai Nagasu is representing the U.S. at the Winter Olympics, and her performance left some asking if she loves the country so much she tattooed 'USA' on her leg.

Social media was abuzz about what was potentially a giant USA tattoo on her inner thigh.

Thankfully, KT Tape — the company that made the USA tape — was more than happy to clear things up, explaining that it’s “a kinesiology tape to help provide pain relief and support.”

Now that we know the truth, the only thing anyone should be talking about is that triple axel. She’s the first American woman to land it at the Olympics, scoring kudos from the likes of Meryl Davis and Kristi Yamaguchi, and helping lead the U.S. figure skating team to bronze.
