Nathan Chen lands record six quads to shoot up the leaderboard

Nathan Chen lands record six quads to shoot up the leaderboard

The largest number - 11 - in biathlon, six people in Luge, four in cross-country skiing and figure skating.

"I definitely did want to redeem myself after the two short programs and I think I did here", he said.

After returning from an injury, Yuzuru Hanyu, a Japanese figure skater managed to become the first repeat Olympic Men's figure skating Gold medalist in 66 years on Saturday with his mesmerising performances in Winter Olympics 2018. It happened to be 1000th medal event in the history of Olympic Winter games.

Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan became the first men's skater since Dick Button of Team USA in 1948 and 1952 to win back-to-back Olympic titles.

The other Americans in the free skate, Vincent Zhou and Adam Rippon, finished sixth and 10th, respectively.

"But overall we are happy with the performance and with the skating".

Two-time national figure skating champion, the 18-year-old Nathan Chen, who is better known as the "quad king" back in form! "I was not prepared that I would be at this ceremony", Ledecka said of her surprise victory.

Chen bombed in the short programme of the team event last week, an ominous sign that proved prescient when he did it again in the short of the individual event, scoring 21.4 points below his personal best from earlier in the season. "Because I had time off from skating, I was able to do a lot of planning and thinking about strategy". It's so much bigger than that.

Uno, the final skater in the competition, blew his shot at gold when he went down on his opening quad, but as he finished, twirling to the thunderous climax to "Nessun Dorma", such mistakes had been forgotten, and the sequins and Pooh Bears reigned supreme. It really is that. "I think that tightened me up and made me super cautious out there and that's not the right way to skate". "And that's not the way to skate".

"I had changed the short program, the second flip to a toe, and that was just a mistake", Chen said, recalling his conservative approach to the start of his Olympic program. It is all about the quads, or quadruple jumps. He even failed to include a combination of two jumps together in his program. He touched down on a second quad flip but maintained his balance. But because he was so far behind from the short, it didn't matter.

Shoma Uno (Japan): The current Japanese champion has the flexibility and musicality of his idol Daisuke Takahashi, plus some showstopping tricks like his cantilever (essentially leaning all the way back while squatting-and sliding-across the ice). Then he leaned forward and buried it in his hands.

"That was my own idea", said Chen today.

"The good thing about that is it takes a while to clear them off and it gives me the extra time to get ready".
