[NBC Sports] Nathan Chen lands four quads, but Adam Rippon wins U.S. title: “Chen posted 266.93 to become the youngest man to finish in the top three at the U.S. Championships since 1973.”

[USA Today] Nathan Chen jumps his way into history at national championships: “Third? Yes, third. Four quads were not good enough for first place. Chen is young and not fully developed as a skater and a jumper, but what a statement it would have been for the judges to have placed him first.”
