Chen wins U.S. Championship
Nathan Chen won his fifth straight U.S. Figure Skating Championship at Las Vegas.
Not since Dick Button won each title from 1946-52 has any American man had such a streak of success. Throw in two world championships and being unbeaten since not medaling at the 2018 Olympics, and Chen, only 21, already has a resume for the ages.
“It’s incredible to try to follow in his footsteps,” Chen said of Button, a two-time Olympic winner.
Chen’s 322.28 points were unmatched by anybody in the field.
Vincent Zhou’s 291.38 was good for second place.
