Nathan Chen Is Still Planning 4 to 5 Quads in His Free Skate at Olympics

Nathan Chen got off to a rocky start at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in the men’s short program last night — but we know that anything can happen with the free skate tonight.

The 18-year-old figure skater recently spoke with Chicago Tribune and revealed that he actually still plans to do four to five quad jumps in his program.

“I think I will include the Lutz; however; the number will be between four and five,” he says. “I am capable of doing all of them, but I know Salchow, toe, flip and Lutz are the most comfortable at the moment, so I think that is where my mind is set.”

That’s his plan, anyways.

Nathan adds that, “come the day of competition, I will decide what specifically I want to do…I think [six quads] is a little too risky of a program now, so I don’t really feel as though that’s something I’m going try to set my mind to right now.”

We’ll be rooting on Nathan at JJJ!
