    As long as Nathan survives puberty and all that jazz, U.S. men in the next quad is going to be BRUTAL. It will be interesting to see him compete face-to-face with Jason, Joshua and Max next season. (He's still at the junior level nationally as well).

    He will be old enough for GP next season!

    Well, you can't really move up when you have five different men competing to senior international spots all those years and three of those men basically typing up all the spots anyway (Takahashi, Kozuka, Oda). You're better off getting the ranking points and ISU personal best score by staying junior.

    He ages out after this season so he will have to move up. The good news is that Oda and Takahashi (and Kozuka?) are retiring this season, so there is some room for him to move up the senior ranks nationally and internationally.

    IN Stream is killing me. Stupidly choppy. Maybe it's just my Internet... anyone else having problems?

    Well, that's only nationally. In the 2007-2008 season, he was only 13-14. The earliest he could've moved up to senior was in 2010-2011 season since he was born in November, when he was 15-16. But most male skaters don't move up to seniors at such a young age.

    Well there was on exception to that rule, Becki.

    Nathan's skating is quite fluid. He telegraphs his 3A like crazy, but he's still young, and will get a consistent 3A soon.

    And yes, he does remind me of a young Patrick Chan!

    The 3A is a pretty new jump for Nathan. He had landed it once last season, but his injuries kept him from attempting it during the rest of the season. He didn't do a 3A at all during the JGP, so it's huge he brought it out for JGPF!

    I think he landed it twice at JGP Austria. Once in the SP and once in the FS. He took it out for US nationals that year.

    I'm actually more excited for the junior FS more than that of the senior men. Will Boyang Jin rebound and land two quads? Will Keiji Tanaka get ridiculous PCS for his two foot skating? Will Nathan Chen beat the rest of the field without a proper triple axel? It's all very exciting.
