Original Post October 2015
by matmuh


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, and 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 Step Sequences, spins, andgreat jumps (although not very high yet), and overall quality elements.

Nathan says his name here:

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 :hopelessness: 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 :cheer:), and Adan&Ashley's hair :laugh:
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.

they asked the same question to Nam and he was really mature about it too, he said he saw Nathan perform 3A and other elements beautifully and thought "wow, he is really good", said he has great SS but then he shook the feeling off and focused on himself , its gonna be exciting to watch them at senior circuit

The already anticipated battle of him versus Vincent versus Andrew torgashev makes me so excited!!
i dont know if we will see them compete at the same competition before GPF (if they can manage to go there), and Nathan will be at senior nationals, Andrew and Vincent probably not? but regardless of competing at the same competition its gonna be exciting who will lead, my money is on Nathan if he can be injury free :cheer: and i have a feeling that Tomoki Hiwatashi will be in the mix as well(saw him at Skate Detroit for the 1st time and really impressed with him!)

While all three are competing junior internationally this year (well... Andrew is out with a broken ankle, so it's unclear if he will compete this senior at all), all three have also indicated they are competing senior at Nationals this year. I would not be surprised if Vincent shows up with a quad or two himself.

Just watched Tomoki's 2015 program at Nationals because of your post. Hey, I like him, too! He seems younger than the above three (and not quite at the same caliber yet) but he looks like he has great potential. That's exciting to see!!

ohh didnt know they all mentioned they will compete senior nationally,and its a shame about Andrew, he had good momentum last year, and JW was amazing, , i wish him speed recovery !
i agree about Tomoki, he isnt there with those 3 yet but he has lots of potential, and he has biellman spin! :biggrin: he is older than both Andrew and Vincent btw :laugh:

Edit: Here is Nathan's SP at Glacier Falls, i really love it!! and he won the event :cheer: cant wait to see his LP!

I've had a soft spot for Nathan for several years now. It's been fun watching him develop (very impressed with his senior debut @ US Nationals). Too bad that Andrew is out with the broken ankle.

Good skating by him. I think he may be dark horse for national title this season if he just can stay injuiry free and gain consistency on quads an 3A

Nathan's FS at Glacier Falls

ETA: Gosh, he's soooo good :clap: Please stay healthy and injury-free!

Amen!
it was really good, i am curious about performance aspect which we cant see at the video, music is very dramatic and he needs to dig deep, but i know he can do it :cheer:
i also wonder what his layout is, was popped Axel supposed to be double or triple? and i love the fact that he does 2Lo2Lo combo instead of 2T2Lo, but he needs to get rid of the illusion spin :hopelessness:
btw, i was watching his national EX programs, and he is tooo cute!

I guess Nathan is aiming for 2quad 2 3a program, very competitive even for senior men.

Do you think if he went senior this year they would have given him a second GP assignment?

Do you think if he went senior this year they would have given him a second GP assignment?

one of the reason he decided not to turn senior was his scores werent as high to earn him 2 spots, so i dont know, i guess it would depend on his performance at his 1st GP assigment
btw he will compete at JGP Colorado Springs against Sota Yamamoto, Tomoki Hiwatashi and Daniel Somohin (its not 100% i guess since he is assigned to SGP as well :think:) didnt think he will face Sota early in the season but its gonna be exciting:popcorn:

Amen!
it was really good, i am curious about performance aspect which we cant see at the video, music is very dramatic and he needs to dig deep, but i know he can do it :cheer:
i also wonder what his layout is, was popped Axel supposed to be double or triple? and i love the fact that he does 2Lo2Lo combo instead of 2T2Lo, but he needs to get rid of the illusion spin :hopelessness:
btw, i was watching his national EX programs, and he is tooo cute!

Golden skate has uploaded Nathan Chen's performance (high quality) for free. In it, you can see that while he is more reserved in the first two thirds, in the final minute he begins to open up and be more expressive. He's generally a very introverted skater (and person), so it's very cool to see him open a little bit. I think as he gets more comfortable with the program and performing it he may open up -- he does have the same coach as Ashley and Adam, after all :p

on my defense, i wrote that comment before IN uploaded his FP :biggrin: i agree it looks better than fancam version, i love how he gets his start position, very fierce! i hope he will be able to stay in character as season goes on

Thanks @matmuh for interview!
I’m really happy for him.:dance: What impressed me most was his skating.. I love it! Strong, smooth, deep… Further, he can dance well and has the innate ability to capture the audience hearts! Great entertainer. I was worried about his injury, but the effect was not seen in his performance. Good interview. He seems to be down to earth.:) GO!

Glad to hear he is injury free now. I've been waiting for a performance like that for the whole past season. Good luck in the FS!

I 2nd that !!!
I think Nathan's personality is kinda reserved and shy off-ice comparing to say bubbly Vincent:biggrin:
it may be a good personality trait for this sport...

Many congratulations to "Slaythan" on his awesome showing here at JGP USA! He got the 2nd highest junior score ever achieved in both the SP, FS and total. It was very good. Go and watch it. (He won, BTW.)

Seriously, I highly recommend you do. It is a gift to humanity.
