Chen is the first athlete to win five straight U.S titles since Dick Button

Nathan Chen has won his fifth straight U.S Figure Skating Championship. He is the first athlete to win five straight U.S titles since Dick Button in the 50’s. “It’s incredible to try to follow in his footsteps,” Chen said of Button. “It means the world. Dick is a true skating icon, and it just feels incredible to be trying to chase something that someone like that has done. I’m nowhere near the level he was at, but it’s just cool to be able to be even mentioned in his sort of realm of legendness.”
