Figure Skater Karen Chen Chops Hair After Olympics; Shares Thanks To Fans For Support

Karen Chen has shortened her hair quite a bit after competing in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics this month.

After returning home to California, the 18-year-old figure skater showed off her new look on Instagram Stories.

“I am extremely disappointed, I’m not going to lie, I know I’ve trained myself to skate better than that and not being able to deliver is a huge let down for myself and everyone who supported me,” Karen shared with reporters after finishing in 11th place following the ladies’ competition.

She adds that she had been having boot issues during the competition.

“What was going on was [the boot] kind of split and a lot of moisture had gone into the boot, so my blade was sinking into my skate and it was affecting the mounting a little bit,” Karen says, although she knows that’s not a reason to excuse her performance.

“I felt like I should have skated better and I could have focused better…I think that just kind of worked its way into my doubt and I just did not end up the way I wanted.”

We’re still proud of you Karen!
