//Nathan Chen Lands 5 Quads Winning US Figure Skating Title · Burning · RumorsLeague. Red Hot Sports Rumors

Nathan Chen performed a stellar short program featuring five quadruple jumps on Sunday to become the youngest men’s US figure skating champion in five decades.

17-year-old Chen, skating to “The Polovtsian Dances,” is now the first skater in the world to successfully land five clean quads in competition. His result was a free skate score of 212.08 — and it was more than the composite of several of Chen’s rivals — finishing with a 318.47 total which effectively put him out of the competition’s reach.

Chen’s began his aerial showcase with a quad lutz-triple toe combination, bobbling only when coming on a triple flip-triple toe close to the program’s end.

But by that point, Rafael Arutunian, Chen’s coach, was already shaking his fists in celebration.
