Re-Watch Figure Skating’s Greatest Performances – NBC Chicago

From Nathan Chen’s record-breaking performance to Yuzuru Hanyu’s shocking error and Jason Brown’s stunning personal best, there was no shortage of excitement during the men’s figure skating short program on Monday night.

Chen, 22, took first place in the men’s short program with a score of 113.97, the highest ever score for a short program. Chen had set a personal best earlier at the 2022 Winter Olympics with a score of 111.71 in the figure skating team event.

Japan’s Yuma Kagiyama placed second with a score of 108.12. Next in the standings is Japan’s Shoma Uno, the reigning Olympic silver medalist, with a score of 105.90.

The biggest story for Japan coming out of the men’s short program was Hanyu. The reigning two-time Olympic gold medalist fell all the way to eighth after an early mistake damaged his technical score. Hanyu finished with a score of 95.15, more than 15 points below his score at the PyeongChang Games. He had the highest score of the previous two Olympic short programs en route to back-to-back gold medals.

Another name to watch in the standings is Team USA’s Jason Brown, a native of Highland Park, Illinois. He is making his second Olympic appearance after his first competition in 2014, when he placed sixth in the short program with a score of 86.00. On Tuesday, he was the last skater to hit the ice and scored 97.24 – a personal best.
