Keepin' it real
Nam Nguyen a small wonder
When Nam Nguyen attended his first skating lesson, he was the only child in the class who couldn’t stand up.

Check out Nam's interview after the FS with Debbie Wilks on SkateBuzz.
He had 10 stitches on his foot after a collision with Jeremy and that was why he didn't do his 3A.
Teenager Nam Nguyen turns heads in his senior debut at Canadian championships

Nam Nguyen is about to get some stiff competition from Nathan Chen. 12-year-old Nathan just won the US Junior Men's Championship. He's too young to go to 2012 Worlds, but he turns 13 in May so he will be on the JGP next season.
I have been proclaiming a showdown between Nam and Nathan in 2018 but now there is also the Chinese phenom Jin Boyang in the mix.
It's all good for the future of figure skating .
I think Nathan Chen is more similar to Patrick Chan, more athletic than Nam Nguyen. There is also a kid Vicent Zhou who is quite a talent, but he is only 11 years old. Maybe too young for 2018.
