Yuzuru Hanyu repeats as gold medalist in PyeongChang

Nathan Chen became the first skater to land six quads in competition on Saturday

If anyone knows the secret to defeating Hanyu, it's his training partner Javier Fernandez.

"But I am so thankful for the people I had around me ... they've all been there every step of the way, believed in me more than I believed in myself".

"But at the same time, have fun and show everybody, who I am".

The only other figure skater to achieve back-to-back victories in the men's discipline was American Dick Button in 1952. Hanyu, the defending Olympic champion, was hobbled by an ankle injury, missing two months of training while his damaged ligaments healed. Light as a bird himself, Rippon hit every element with grace and, after taking his bow, put a hand to his heart.

He adds, "It just was rough".

In what amounted to a spectacular jumping contest complemented by superb spins and intricate footwork amid intense pressure, the top four were magnificent and spotless. "We have such few Winter Olympic medals in any sports, so I hope it means a lot to everyone back home".

Adam Rippon of the United States reacts after his performance during the men's short program figure skating in the Gangneung Ice Arena at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Gangneung, South Korea, Friday, Feb. 16, 2018. He will face stiff competition from China's Jin Boyang, who is only 0.85 points behind him. Also I saw the North Korean cheer squad, which I thought was really interesting, really fun. Nothing really clicked together.

Two middle-aged government workers and long-time figure skating fans, who asked not to be named, said they were both enthusiastic Uno followers. And he'll be remembering his performance at the Four Continents Championship, where he was behind Uno after the short program, just like he is now, but overtook him in the long program to win.

"Definitely, there was a lot about redemption", Chen said.

Wearing a military costume complete with epaulets, Russian Dmitri Aliev set the leaping bar very high as the 20th of 30 skaters to perform. He lay on his bed and allowed his mind to go blank, save for the nearly preposterous of idea of trying to shoehorn that sixth quad into his program.

He will make quite an impression in skating shows if he is done competing. He finished fifth with a combined total of 297.35. Considering his replacement, Mikhail Kolyada, flopped in the short program of that competition, that decision appears unwise.

"The weight of the world was on (Nathan)", Rippon said, "and Vincent, the future is out there for him". "I wasn't especially anxious".

Canada's Patrick Chan, who was narrowly beaten by Hanyu at the 2014 Sochi Games, is seeking revenge. But with another gold medal around his neck, the Sendai native has moved to a higher level. I'm so prepared for this moment and for me to be able to go out there and really deliver on what I wanted to do I'm so happy, I'm so proud. "I'll just go for it".

"You know, it was awesome".

Once a medal factory, American men have scaled the podium only twice in the last seven Olympics: in 2010, when Evan Lysacek claimed gold, and in 2002, when Timothy Goebel won bronze. He was 12th in the standings with a season-best 84.53. "I'll readjust in the morning, rethink about it'". "The crowd always gets super hyped up, and so (I will) just use that to my advantage as well."=.

"I feel like I gave a great performance today", Zhou said.
