Nathan Chen once again pulls off his insane backflip

A Nathan Chen performance without his trademark backflip is somewhat incomplete.

The commotion of cheer and joy in the crowd proved the effect of Nathan’s extraordinary move. He is known for his backflip and there was no way he was going to miss it.
