To "Nathan Chen" is a verb describing your actions and attitude to pick yourself up off the ground no matter how many times you fall, to keep trying and to throw everything down to see what happens. It's about resilience and never letting failure define who you are and what you do. It's what Team USA mens figure skater Quad King Nathan W. Chen did with his Olympic record-breaking 6 Quads in his final Free Skate after he bombed on his Short Program at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games at Pyeongchang.
Nathan Chen rewrote the story of his Pyeongchang Winter Olympics and show us what it means to really "Nathan Chen . Even when his Olympic dream seemed to end from his problem-plagued skate in the men's short program the day before, Nathan performed an unprecedented 6 quad jumps in his free skate and launching himself from 17th place and almost winning a medal in the men's singles competition. For his final skate, Chen had planned five quads. Then he decided that he would try to spin around four times in the air during six jumps — and he pulled it off. "I have been working on it for a while," Chen said after his skate. "It's never really fully come together. I already fell so many times, I was like, 'I already fell so many times earlier in Pyeongchang, I might as well go out and throw everything down and see what happens.' " As Chen told NPR's Melissa Block, "Screw it. I have nothing to lose."
