OMAHA, Neb. — Salt Lake City's Nathan Chen took third in the men's junior division of the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.
Battling a stomach virus, Chen, the event's defending champion, fell on the second jump of a triple flip-triple toe combination and turned several other intended triples into doubles.
"I could have done better, but due to my setbacks — I've been sick the past couple of days and I've had injury after injury — I think I pulled off basically what I was going for," the 13-year-old said.
