PYEONGCHANG, South Korea (AP) - The United States has come away with a bronze medal in team figure skating during Day 3 of the Winter Games.

The Americans led Italy by four points heading into the ice dancing finale. The Italian dancers did not score well enough to win, turning the performance by Maia and Alex Shibutani into an exhibition.

Mirai Nagasu has become the first American woman and third overall to land a triple axel in the Olympics, accomplishing the rare feat in the women's free skate at the team competition.

Canada clinched the gold before the final discipline. The Russians took silver.
