Now he needs something even bigger... "Porsche" or Merc or BMV.. :D
United Airlines isn't big enough? He had the big Olympic sponsors, including United & Coca Cola. (I still think a duct tape company would be the most appropriate).

Oh great! i am actually looking to see who is on these boxes after each Olympics, and did not see Nathan. Nike is great!
I wish it was more in "print" and on TV..

You are behind on this one. During the Olympic Games I bought the Chen cereal box and coke bottle.

I have revised to my top 30 list after the data purge.
I discovered why my numbers were wrong: when I copied the Men's WR into my spreadsheet, I inadvertently left out the 2nd Intl column. The other disciplines were correctly copied.

Thanks, everyone for pointing out the discrepancies--that helped me to zero in on what was wrong.

Here are the corrected numbers:

1-4290 Nathan CHEN
2-4045 Shoma UNO
3-3670 Mikhail KOLYADA
4-3461 Yuzuru HANYU
5-2913 Jason BROWN
6-2905 Vincent ZHOU
7-2730 Alexander SAMARIN
8-2695 Matteo RIZZO
9-2686 Keegan MESSING
10-2402 Michal BREZINA
11-2328 Boyang JIN
12-2321 Deniss VASILJEVS
13-2284 Morisi KVITELASHVILI
14-2201 Junhwan CHA
15-2189 Sergei VORONOV
16-2176 Javier FERNANDEZ (retired)
17-2060 Dmitri ALIEV
18-1960 Daniel GRASSL
19-1924 Keiji TANAKA
20-1782 Kazuki TOMONO
21-1698 Alexei BYCHENKO
22-1683 Roman SAVOSIN
23-1681 Camden PULKINEN
24-1664 Nam NGUYEN
25-1663 Tomoki HIWATASHI
26-1607 Andrei LAZUKIN
27-1559 Alexander MAJOROV (retired)
28-1512 Alexei KRASNOZHON
29-1460 Kevin AYMOZ
30-1368 Brendan KERRY

Vincent's new exhibition skate:

https://youtu.be/Jwx6euqsJXQ
Josh Farris choreographed his second exhibition in two years for Vincent (scroll to the end): https://usfigureskatingfanzone.com/news/2019/3/22/figure-skating-zhou-works-to-create-some-magic-moments-in-saitama.aspx
This article, published before the Worlds FS, includes quotes by Ryan Jahnke and Tom Dickson.
I missed seeing this posted by Vincent on his IG back on Feb. 21 (with Josh on World Arena ice): https://www.instagram.com/p/BuKrDWhH1dU/

ETA from Vincent's cheer thread just now:
Joji [the singer/artist] retweeted a clip of Vincent's exhibition:

These wouldn't endorse. 19 yo's are not a target for these platinum brands - at least in the US.

Wasn't Bychenko retiring? I think he is over 30 yrs old at this point. I also would think Voronov is set to leave for greener pastures, and I paraphrase, but Brezina has said he's leaning towards retiring.

Speaking of ISU YT videos, here are the ISU interviews by Cathy Reed with the U.S. men at Worlds:

Nathan after his FS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiJc-FnvMm8

Vincent after his FS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60RUulAi1ec

Jason after his SP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2GSO1EAGws
Nathan already has a car sponsorship with Acura.
This is the photo Nathan posted of his new Acura RDX parked in front of the Yale rink last November:
Nathan only requires a modest car while in college ;): https://www.instagram.com/p/BqGaqxbHeUc/
The U.S. Olympic Committee invited Nathan to visit the National Center for Child Health and Development in Setagaya in western Tokyo (before he traveled to Osaka for Stars on Ice coming up this weekend) and he shared 3 photos from his visit: https://www.instagram.com/p/BvgjT1gn-uy/

He might even do WTT too as well. He mentioned wanting to do it, but it would be back to school for a week before going back to Japan. I can't imagine the jet lag from that.

So he didn't go back to Yale. I hope not too much school work awaits him
He is performing in the Osaka Stars on Ice shows this weekend.

He posted an Instagram story of him writing a paper - looks like he just keeps up with his school work wherever he travels.

Unique to Yale is a two-week spring break. They were off March 8 through the 25th. I used to be a career counselor at Yale. The reasoning for the two week break is the University wants to encourage a week of service while also leaving students a week for relaxation. So, spring semester classes start back up again on Monday.

Egna Spring Trophy - the 3 U.S. men picked up 2 golds and 1 silver in Italy this past week:

GOLD - Alexsei KRASNOZHON USA 220.12 1 2 - his first senior international win; 8 triples landed in FS
SILVER - Andrew TORGASHEV USA 218.43 4 1 - believe this is the first time he's landed 2 quad toes in FS

FS result details:
1 TORGASHEV USA 151.46 74.28 77.18 7.92 7.33 7.67 7.75 7.92 0.00 #13
2 KRASNOZHON USA 145.95 74.13 71.82 7.33 6.83 7.25 7.33 7.17 0.00 #16

Torgashev (Tango de Roxanne) - jumps: 4T+3T, 2A, 4T, tech. panel called this 3Lz (fell out)+SEQ+3S* (he repeated the 4T and 3Lz), 3F fell out, 3Lz+2T, 3Lo.

Krasnozhon (Korobushka) - jumps: 3F+3T, 3A+2T+2Lo, 3A, 2A, 3F+3Lo, 3F, 3S.

FS videos from the archived stream are still working for now:
Torgashev: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYNsM-RM638&t=25m48s
Krasnozhon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYNsM-RM638&t=47m9s

2019 U.S. Intermediate champ Robert Yampolsky competed in his first international and won the gold medal in Adv. Novice Boys. In the SP he landed 3Lz+2T, 3F & 2A but his final spin (FCSp2) didn't count: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAsslMDcnrM&t=57m30s

Why was Torgashev's 3S called invalid? He would have won with it.

So proud of him! That was his best LP of the season by far.

He took extra steps after the 3Z landing so it could no longer be considered a combo...the transition between the jumps has to be from 1 edge directly to another edge. I think they used to call 2 separate jumps in that situation but then there were controversial situations where that led to the invalidating of another jump later on in the program (i.e. filled the boxes) so this seems to be the compromise on how to handle it. Either way, some jump would be invalidated.

Why not call it a sequence? I know at one point that would have been allowed, but I can't keep up with all the rule changes.

It's no longer allowed. A sequence has to be edge to edge with no additional steps/stumbles in between, such as a half loop (actually, I think those are considered combos now) or Hanyu's step straight from his 4T landing into a 3A.

Torgashev is a beautiful skater. Even with that music, I really enjoyed that! Looking forward to what he can do in the future.

I was looking at next season's Grand Prix schedule, and I see a potential issue for Nathan. He picked SkAm and the Internationaux last year as the only events that fit his university schedule, but this year the order of the events has been moved around -- SkAm is still first, but the last event (and chronologically the one scheduled for where the Internationaux was last year) is NHK Trophy, which will obviously be reserved for Yuzuru Hanyu.
