Watch Nathan Chen's joyful, stunning free skate. Olympic gold!

Wow! What an amazing performance to Elton John's "Rocket Man."

Nathan Chen remembers making the long drive with his mother from his home in Utah to Rafael Arutyunyan’s training base in Southern California. He had started out in figure skating just a few years earlier, using his sister’s skates and sleeping in the car to follow his Olympic dreams.

Ten years later, Chen sat alongside Arutyunyan as his scores were read and that dream realized.

Nathan Chen is also a student at Yale University.
