He performed FIVE quadruple jumps in his long program! A first ever!

Nathan is being name dropped all over as the skater who will be changing the face of men’s figure skating.

“That’s what I’ve strived for my whole life,” Nathan shared ahead of the long program about earning the title of champion. “I don’t think it’s necessarily something I should be afraid of.”

He adds, “It’s something I’ve wanted my whole life. It’s definitely a good step for me and I’m really happy to be where I am tonight and hopefully to continue with this in the free skate.”
