    Nathan Chen

    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

    Do we know if he is staying in Junior this coming season? I think he is super talented and hope to see him injury-free this season!

    He was very good at Nationals in seniors, but I think he would do better to stay junior internationally.

    here is the interview of him with TSL, they talk about his injuries (now he has shoulder injury i hope he will have injury free season and career!), JGP, how organised his wikipedia page is (i agree! when i was preparing his OP i didnt need to check other places for info, i could just find so many info there and sources, so good job mom and dad ), and Adan&Ashley's hair
    and i am glad he is keeping his SP, he said he felt really uncomfortable at 1st and thought "what are we doing here" but then he started feeling good about it, i hope he will have more programs like this cause obviously he can move!

    I enjoyed the TSL interview with Nathan, although it was a bit shorter than their usual interviews. I guess it's b/c his career is young, or he didn't have much time to talk with them, if he's prepping for Glacier Falls.

    I'm glad we got clarity on why he's doing the JGP (he didn't have enough points to go Senior), yet he's competing on a national level as a Senior.

    He seems like an intelligent young man with a good head on his shoulders, so best of luck to him and hope his growing pains get better.

    He spoke so fast at the beginning of the interview! I didn't know he and Nam were constantly compared to each other and I like how he is handling it. Overall he seems really down to earth and sweet. I look forward to seeing him at JGP and hope for an injury free season too.
