Nathan Chen: “Yes, I was told that Yuzuru made a mistake.”
Nathan Chen on his performance in the short program at the Olympic Games in Beijing.
Nathan Chen: Scores are not really in my power. My job is to skate, and the judges – to assess. But I definitely didn’t expect that.
Rivalry with Hanyu is now impossible? You know, it’s also out of my control. I need to focus on recovery and successfully perform in a free program. Yes, I was told that Yuzuru did a mistake. But I don’t control it.
I will not change anything in the free program. I need to focus on myself and recover properly.
We don’t see Yuzuru here, we have different schedules. There are still limitations, although yes, athletes want to communicate. I try to keep my distance. If one of the athletes wants to come up to me and talk, no problem.
