VIDEO: Nathan Chen Shattered High-Scoring Record at US Nationals 2017

Get used to seeing Nathan Chen‘s name everywhere.

The 17-year-old figure skater just shattered records everywhere last night (January 20) at the 2017 U.S. Figure Skating Championships — including the high score for the short dance at nationals. He scored 106.39, demolishing Jeremy Abbott‘s score of 99.86 back in 2014.

“Throughout my skating career, nerves have always been there,” Nathan revealed about his nerves going into the performance. “It’s something that I’ve just tried to distract myself from and push that aside as much as I can.”

He adds, “At the same time, where I am now and where I’m pushing to go is what I’ve strived towards my whole life, and I don’t feel like that’s something I should be afraid of. It’s something that I’m really excited for, actually. It’ll bring more energy and more excitement to my skating versus pulling me down.”

Following Nathan on the leaderboard were Ross Miner, Just JaredVincent Zhou, Jason Brown (the 2016 champ), and Max Aaron.

Ice Dance Siblings Maia & Alex Shibutani Win Gold at Skate America 2016

Maia and Alex Shibutani show off their strong skills on the ice at 2016 Progressive Skate America held at Sears Centre Arena over the weekend in Chicago, Ill.

The ice dance champion siblings took over the title, with Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue taking the silver medal.

“It’s not a choice a lot of other teams are making, but it really allows us to show our leg lines and movement and really just skate freely,” Maia shared of wearing pants for their short dance.

She added, “It was a collective thought from the group that created the program, and it’s one thing to have the idea, but it takes confidence to wear pants out there, and I have that now! So it’s just fun.”

Pairs skaters Haven Denney and Brandon Frazier also won the silver medal. Jason Brown and Adam Rippon grabbed the silver and bronze medal for the men’s competition.

Reigning Champ Jason Brown Withdraws From U.S. Figure Skating Championships

We’re so sad that Jason Brown won’t be competing at the 2016 U.S. Figure Skating Championships this year, but it’s for a good reason.

“Words cannot describe how deeply disappointed I am to be unable to compete at the U.S. Championships and go for another title,” Jason, 21, shared in a statement.

He continued, “I was trying really hard to push through for Nationals, but my back pain flared up again during training. Under my doctors’ orders, I have shut down all training in order to allow my body to heal completely. With rest, treatment and physical therapy, my doctors expect my full recovery. I look forward to competing again as soon as I possibly can.”

Jason is the current reigning U.S. National Champion. Skaters still competing are Max Aaron, Adam Rippon and Nathan Chen, among others.

Team USA celebrates with Gracie Gold after the ladies free skate during the ISU World Team Trophy held at Yoyogi National Gymnasium late last week in Tokyo, Japan.

Gracie, 19, pushed Team USA’s lead over Russia and Japan securing the title once again. Team USA won the title in 2009 and 2013.

“Today was a really great day for Team USA,” team captain Evan Bates shared afterwards. “It was a group effort. I thought everyone skated really well and we’re really happy. But at the same time we know that the competition is far from over.”

Evan and partner Madison Chock headed to Hawaii after the competition.

“don’t worry about us,” Evan captioned with a cute Instagram from the tropical islands.

Ashley Wagner, Jason Brown, Max Aaron and pairs skaters Alexa Scimeca and Chris Knierim are also picture below.

Madison Chock & Evan Bates Score Silver at World Championships; Gracie Gold & Jason Brown Take 4th in Shanghai

Madison Chock & Evan Bates Score Silver at World Championships; Gracie Gold & Jason Brown Take 4th in Shanghai

Congrats to ice dancers Madison Chock and Evan Bates for picking up the silver medal at this weekend’s 2015 ISU World Figure Skating Championships held at Shanghai Oriental Sports Center in China.

The duo placed second with 181.34, just a few points shy of France’s Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron. Maia and Alex Shibutani were 5th, while Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue placed 10th.

In the women’s competition, Gracie Gold and Ashley Wagner were 4th and 5th, with Polina Edmunds in 8th.

“It might sound silly because I’m 23 years old, but I’m still learning in this sport,” Ashley shared with press after the free program. “I was a late bloomer. To go out there under such immense pressure, to redeem myself in a way, that’s something I’m very proud of.”

Gracie added, “This year was a little more rough and tumble for me. I’m used to being at least consistently going up, maybe a little down. Wiping the ice at the Four Continents event and breaking a foot aren’t really in my usual plans. Those are some pretty severe ups and downs.”

Jason Brown placed 4th in the men’s competition, with Adam Rippon in 8th, and Joshua Farris in 11th.

Pairs katers Haven Denney and Brandon Frazier placed 12th, and U.S. National Champs Alexa Scimeca and Chris Knierim were 7th.

“I knew if I relaxed and skated like I knew I could, it was possible,” Polina shared after the free skate. “I expected myself to skate well and I did. I’m happy I was awarded the gold medal for it.”

Joshua Farris took the silver medal for the men’s competition, with Jason Brown in 6th.

Ice Dancers and current U.S. Champs Madison Chock and Evans Bates, placed 2nd, with Maia and Alex Shibutani in 3rd. Pairs skaters and U.S. Champs Alexa Scimeca and Chris Knierim placed 5th.
