Can anyone say something reassuring about his Russian vocabulary?
Would love an upload of the Worlds FS I live in constant fear that any of the links will stop working. There was a BBC event review with more beautiful compliments from Robin Cousins that disappeared from YouTube.I mean... I can upload the ISU version for anyone interested.

Ah, hi, heyheyhey, what a pleasant surprise!! I was thinking of you this week. As a matter a fact, your optimism is dearly missed every time when I’m stressed about him.Sup everyone, long time no see
Haven’t been here in like a year so gonna catch up on the thread soon but I see that my boy has gone undefeated for 3 years now? So proud. Excited for the Olympic season, I’m confident it’ll be his best yet. Now to scour through everything I missed, hopefully the links work still
— Nathan Chen's majestic performance at the World Team Trophy − he skated like a whirlwind.
It’s too bad that Friday was most likely the last time Nathan Chen will skate the free program Shae-Lynn Bourne artfully choreographed to selections from the music of the minimalist composer, Philip Glass.
Chen clearly had a physical as well as intellectual understanding of Glass, having studied his music at Yale and having learned how to play part of it on the piano. The skater’s interpretation got more nuanced each time he performed it, with the final half of the four minutes at the World Championships and the opening 30 seconds at World Team Trophy clear evidence of how he “got” the music.
It brought him a third straight world title and fifth straight U.S. title.
This was my favorite free skate of the five Chen has used in his five years as a senior international competitor. He has also used five different short programs.
Chen began his senior career with a pair of classical warhorses, from Le Corsaire and the Polovtsian Dances, but he has been all over the musical landscape since: moody contemporary, upbeat Elton John, Latin, pulsating Stravinsky. And as he has eschewed the comfort of familiarity (and repetition) for the challenges of stretching himself artistically, Chen has also filled those programs with the most stunning array of quadruple jumps in history. He did four more quads Friday, two in combination.
Thank you! I missed all of you, 2020 as you know was crazy so I honestly didn’t have time to catch up with anything sports but I’m starting to get back into it. Seems like there were many cancellations in terms of competitions so I probably didn’t miss too much in that aspect but I’m just glad to see our boy is thriving, not that I ever doubted. I’m sure Raf was happy to have him home full time finally.Ah, hi, heyheyhey, what a pleasant surprise!! I was thinking of you this week.

I don’t want to sound over dramatic, but I really miss you, oatmella and skfan so much.
