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.

Spain's Javier Fernandez Brings Crowd To Their Feet & Wins Men's Title at Worlds 2016

Javier Fernandez is still the Men’s champ!

The 24-year-old Spanish figure skater defended his title at the 2016 World Figure Skating Championships held at TD Garden on Friday night (April 1) in Boston, Mass., beating out Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu and China’s Boyang Jin.

“I didn’t think about how important it was for me to win or anything, just kept going from jump to jump,” Javier shared with press afterwards. “It was not easy [to skate a clean program], but I got my mind really set to do it.”

Russia’s Mikhail Kolyada was in 4th, Canada’s Patrick Chan in 5th, with USA’s Adam Rippon and Max Aaron in 6th and 8th, respectively.

Yuzuru Hanyu Is Out For 'Revenge' At Worlds 2016; Tops Leaderboard For Short Program

Yuzuru Hanyu Is Out For 'Revenge' At Worlds 2016; Tops Leaderboard For Short Program

Yuzuru Hanyu heads into a tail spin in his routine for the Men’s Short Program during the 2016 Worlds Figure Skating Championships at TD Arena on Wednesday night (March 30) in Boston, Mass.

The 21-year-old Japanese figure skater took the top spot during the Short Program, besting Spain’s Javier Fernandez, Canada’s Patrick Chan and Team USA’s Adam Rippon and Max Aaron, who sit in 7th and 8th places, respectively.

“I feel like because I lost last year in this competition, I have to have revenge,” Yuzuru told press ahead of the competition.

His coach, Brian Orser, added, “[Hanyu] wants to win more than anything. It didn’t sit well with him [last year]. The only consolation was that it was Javi that won. That was a little easier pill to swallow. But he wants to win, and so does Javi. They’re both capable of winning.”

The Men’s Free Program will air Friday, April 1st @ 6:45PM. Check your local listings for the channel.

Gracie Gold, Adam Rippon, Maia & Alex Shibutani Lead US Team To Worlds Competition in Boston

Gracie Gold, Adam Rippon, Maia & Alex Shibutani Lead US Team To Worlds Competition in Boston

The 2016 U.S. National Figure Skating team for the upcoming Worlds competition is looking insanely good!

The figure skaters, who competed this past weekend at the 2016 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in St. Paul, Minnesota and are headed to Boston for the 2016 World Figure Skating Championships are: Gracie Gold, Polina Edmunds, Ashley Wagner (ladies), Adam Rippon, Max Aaron, Nathan Chen (men), Tarah Kayne and Danny O’Shea and Alexa Scimeca and Chris Knierim (pairs), Maia and Alex Shibutani, Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue, and Madison Chock and Evan Bates (ice dance).

“The international scene is so strong and it’s getting stronger every single year and I think that it is never a question of whether or not the U.S. ladies are capable of being on that podium; it’s more a question of when we’re going to step up to that challenge,” Ashley shared about the particularly competitive ladies competition.

She added, “This year is going to be about going out there and nailing those triple-triple combinations, nailing those technical marks, performing the hell out of those programs. That is what’s going to get us onto the world podium, and that is a lot to ask of one person, but I think we’re definitely capable of putting that out.”

The 2016 World Figure Skating Championships will be held from March 28th to April 3rd.

Adam Rippon Claims Gold at Figure Skating Championships Without Any Quads

Adam Rippon reacts to his scores after the Mens’ Free Skate during the the 2016 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Sunday (January 24) at Xcel Energy Center in St Paul, Minn.

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.”
