Nathan Chen says poor short program due to mental issue

Nathan Chen

Nathan Chen clearly felt disappointed after falling during his short program performance at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang on Thursday night, and he acknowledged he had a mental issue.

Chen fell during his program on a triple axel attempt and ended up finishing fourth. Afterwards, he said he was in his head.

Chen also told NBC he let the team down. He said he needs some time to go over his mistakes so he doesn’t repeat them.

Chen received a score of 80.61 points, which is one of his worst ever in the short program. He will have some time to gather and regroup before the men’s individual event.
