Nathan Chen was in 17th place when he began to skate. Then he made history.

Sunday 02:26 GMT

Chen, who entered Saturday's men's free skate in 17th place after a disappointing short program, finished his performance with a new personal best, 215.08.

Chen's free skate was redemption after two disappointing performances — the first in the figure skating team men's short program, during which he fell on a triple Axel, among other mistakes, that ultimately landed him in fourth; the second at the individual event that saw the "Quad King" finishing in 17th after the short program. "I just wanted to be able to leave here satisfied with what I've done," Chen said.
