    Agreed, I don’t see Nathan nominated (and I would fall down in front of my computer if a figure skater in a non Oly year was nominated for anything).

    But was Nathan actually at the ESPYs? Plenty of athletes go who weren’t nominated

    Nathan is in Montreal, he wasn’t at the ESPYs.

    Its pretty sad that he wasnt even nominated....when you look at all the bizarre catagories and people who won, it pretty much throws credibility out the window for the show.....

    Skating isn’t popular in the US outside of the Olympics. It’s sad, but it will take more than just Nathan to revive interest in the sport.

    If the ESPYs were just a recap of who won what, no one would watch. Particularly for a show based in the US for a network whose majority of viewers couldn’t identify Nathan Chen with a photo in front of them.

    I’m just glad Kawhi bearing the Sixers didn’t win its category

    The ESPYs (like many sports awards shows) are fuelled by popularity. Ohashi winning two categories? Williams and Federer winning best tennis players this year? Those are 3 of my fave athletes (especially Serena), but come on. I don't think skating is popular enough in the States to have Chen be nominated nor does Chen have the social backing to pressure the ESPYs to nominate him.

    Hah I'm not sure... I've never been so exceedingly invested in an athlete to actually advocate on behalf of them to a sports awards, but perhaps there's some super dedicated Nathan fan(s) out there who's willing to put in the time and effort to get a campaign going! And even if there isn't, I suppose he will just have to settle for winning World championships, I guess.
