The 26-year-old athlete bested 2013 National Champion Max Aaron for the title, with 270.75 points.
Adam was also the only top skater to not land a quad, where as Max and bronze medalist Nathan Chen, had many.
“After the first jump I reminded myself that I’m a warrior,” Adam shared with press after being asked about the jump. “I can’t believe it’s a reality.”
