Nathan Chen Becomes First Person to Land Six Quadruple Jumps in Competition!

Nathan Chen just made Olympic history!

The 18-year-old figure skater just became the first person to land six quadruple jumps in a single routine.

Nathan, who has been facing some disappointing performances in PyeongChang, found himself in first place following the incredible feat.

The performance earned him a score of 215.08, which combined with his short program score of 82.27, gave him a total of 297.35.

While the competition is still ongoing, the score could be enough for him to take home the gold medal!

The men’s individual event is his final competitive appearance at the games, so it looks like Nathan is certainly making the most of his last time on the ice.

Good luck Nathan!

Watch it all go down below…
