VIDEO: Karen Chen Crowned Ladies Champ at US Figure Skating Nationals 2017

Karen Chen is the new ladies national champion!

The 17-year-old figure skater reigned at the 2017 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Kansas City, Miss., last night (January 21) for the long program, beating out favorites Ashley Wagner and Mirai Nagasu.

“I’m just in complete shock,” Karen shared after her amazing win. “All of this just came together for me. It was a rough season. I spent the first couple months working out my boot problems and working with a new boot company trying to work out all the kinks. I’m happy with the progress and hope to keep getting better.”

She adds, “I think it’s very exciting. It was definitely one of my goals and this is what I wanted to do when I came here. I’m just so thrilled with how everything went.”

Mariah Bell, who finished 3rd, and Gracie Gold, who finished 6th, are also pictured below.
