Biographie

Nathan Chen

Nathan Chen is a three-time (2018, 2019 and 2021) world champion figure skater from the United States, and helped his team to a bronze-medal finish at the Olympic Games PyeongChang 2018 in the figure skating team event. He made his Olympic debut at the age of 18 in PyeongChang, becoming the first man to attempt six quadruple jumps in the free skate - and first to land five cleanly. 

But Chen had podium hopes at the Games in 2018, where he stumbled in the short program of both the team and individual events, respectively. Coming into PyeongChang, the teenager had an unblemished season record and was anticipated to go head-to-head with reigning Olympic champion Hanyu Yuzuru. But Chen struggled on both an attempted quadruple Lutz and quad toe jumps in the individual short program, failing to do a combination in the segment and stumbling to 17th place.

He'd bounce back in the free, however, winning the segment with a 215.08 and hop-scotching himself to fifth place overall. His free skate score was the highest ever in Olympic competition. 

Chen would go undefeated in international competition from the world championships in 2018 through to Skate America in 2021, winning 10 events in a row. His third-place finish at Skate America kicked off his Olympic season, though he would bounce back for victory at Skate Canada the following week.

Chen is based in the Los Angeles area and is coached by Rafael Arutunian. He has used a variety of choreographers in his career, but most recently has stuck with three-time Olympic ice dancer Shae-Lynn Bourne. He trained remotely for two seasons while attending Yale University, but returned to the Southern California area at the outset of the Covid-19 pandemic.

"Going into the 2017-18 season... I wanted to win" the Olympics, Chen told Olympics.com in September of 2021. "At the same time, having had that experience at the Olympics, having failed on the biggest stage, it's nothing to be afraid of. Ultimately, if I'm able to put out programs that I'm satisfied with... if I try my very best, then I'll be happy and fulfilled with the result."
