U.S. figure skater Nathan Chen was born on May 5, 1999, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Nathan is 2 time novice, 2 time junior national champion and 1 time national bronze medalist, as well as 2014 Junior Worlds bronze medalist
he has had great career so far even for such young age young, apart from junior worlds this year, he never finished off the podium at international competitions,
2014-2015 season wasnt easy for him with all the injuries and growing but to me he is still one of the most promising skaters from US for the future, i just hope he can stay injury free and not train too hard
i love his skating, he has got great SS, spins great jumps (although not very high yet) and overall quality elements, its amazing that his PB scores are from 2012-2013 season his 1st junior season XD
