In the first rehearsal for THE ICE tour, Nathan reportedly ran through his Mozart medley & landed 3Lo 3Lz 3F 3T - livestreams (fixed bird's-eye view camera with no audio from inside the rink) for the next 2 days are linked in post #5: https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/th...-26-28-in-niigata-july-30-31-in-osaka.109666/

Roland Lane took the 3 Sun Valley show photos for the Idaho Mountain Express article, including the impressive 2nd action shot! (photo also embedded in the tweet below): https://www.instagram.com/p/CgNPrE8FRuI/

Nathan was nominated for an ESPYs award in the category of best male Olympian!

Alas, Nathan didn't win the ESPY last night for Best Olympian, Men's Sports, but congrats to swimmer Caeleb Dressel!

A few more pics from Sun Valley:

Nathan's duet with Shoma from The Ice
This was gorgeous and proof we would do well to reconsider the rigidly gendered catagories skating currently uses.

But also as a tag wrangler on AO3 I'd be lying if I didn't also think that this was going to spawn like 1000 fanfics.

Throwback to Beijing when he was being escorted to the medal ceremony.

Mao uploaded photos from the Airweave event with Nathan

A Japanese writer attended several days of rehearsals and came away very impressed with Nathan.
Edited Google translation of Nathan's portion:
What impressed me especially when I saw the three-day rehearsal was that Nathan Chen was really enthusiastic about choreography and directing, repeatedly practicing even the minute timings in the group numbers, and actively working to raise the level of perfection of the show. THE ICE has more collaboration numbers, group dances, opening and finale than other shows, which is a big burden for skaters. In fact, in the past I've heard confused voices from skaters who aren't used to these shows. However, it seems that the enthusiastic efforts of a champion as great as Nathan Chen have tightened the atmosphere of the entire team and created an atmosphere of harmoniousness and concentration toward the goal.

Thanks so much for posting these! Both are stunning in their own way! Cannot believe how he moves on the ice!

Goodbye to Supra

Some info on the Vail show
While Chen, whom Shipstad said is retired from the highest levels of competition, won’t perform his famed quad jumps that immortalized him in the halls of Olympic greats, viewers can expect world-class speed, artistry and amplitude as he performs “tons of triples” to Elton John’s “Rocketman,” the program which sealed his legacy in Beijing.

“He will definitely come to Vail prepared,” assured Shipstad.

“He’s an accomplished pianist, he’s going to Yale … he’s still going to keep up his skating aspects to bring it,” he continued.

“That’s just in his nature. He has always been one of those who does everything 100%.”

Nathan named Goodwill Ambassador for the 2023 FISU World University Games in Lake Placid!
As FISU 2023 Goodwill Ambassador, Chen is planning on attending January’s Games, as well as participating in a press conference and promoting the 11-day, winter multisport and educational festival on his social media platforms.

“I’m so happy to be a part of January’s Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games and helping to support everyone involved,” Chen said. “It’s going to be so exciting to see so many of the world’s best collegiate-athletes compete in their selected sport. This is a special time in each of their lives and the ability to balance academics and athletics already makes them champions.”
