Nathan Chen Fails to Medal in 2018 Olympic Men's Singles Competition

Les patineurs artistiques à l'heure des quads

Japan's Yuzuru Hanyu successfully defended his Olympic title in men's singles figure skating after beating compatriot Shoma Uno to gold at the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

In a Team USA press release later, Chen spoke about how his poor performance in the short program motivated him to do better on Saturday.

His routine set to Chopin's Ballade No.1 earned him 10 points more than the one he led the short programme with in Russian Federation four years ago. He won gold at the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships and Grand Prix of Figure Skating events a year ago.

Spain's Javier Fernandez slipped a notch and ended up taking home the bronze medal with a total score of 305.24.

After falling (quite miserably) to 17th place after the team men's short program and earlier individual events, the two-time us champion figure skater redeemed himself with a history-making men's free skate performance on Saturday.

But now a double Olympic champion, Hanyu was more forthcoming.

Next up for Team USA was Vincent Zhou who skated to a 192.16 in the free skate for a combined score of 276.69 in the men's singles. It appeared as if nerves and pressure had gotten the best of him, so despite acknowledging his outstanding potential, I was managing my expectations for Chen's free skate. "I knew it was going to be my last one (Olympics) so it's true that I was a little bit more nervous than yesterday". This time, the Sydneysider made sure he was there to the finish, scoring 83.06 to place 16th after the short program.

"I am overwhelmed. I am just happy with my performance and my hard training and everything", said a teary Hanyu, who emulated American Dick Button's feats of 1948 and 1952.

American jumping ace Nathan Chen lived up to his reputation on Saturday, redeeming himself with quadruple jumps after a pair of disastrous skates in Pyeongchang and making Olympic history into the bargain with a brilliant free skate.

"I tried to think of it as any other competition", he said. "I might as well just go for everything right now, I have literally nothing to lose so I might as well just go for it". He even did the sixth quad, a loop, getting full credit for the four rotations though he put his hands down on the ice on it.

Another standout was Canada's Patrick Chan, skating an elegant free skate that contained a few mistakes, but the 2014 silver medalist more than made up for it with artistic mastery.

"I have no words right now, " said Hanyu, who wept in Fernandez's arms after his victory.

The performance came after Chen faltered in his earlier Olympic appearances. "It was a bunch of emotions, but I'm really happy with what I did today". "I just wanted to put them out there and see what happened".

"They usually say that like, after the Olympic Games, somebody's life changes forever", Rippon said.
