American teen Nathan Chen left St. Paul with a piece of history but also with an injury that will keep him out of the world championships.
Chen, 16, who landed quadruple jumps in national record numbers and finished third last weekend during the U.S. Championships at Xcel Energy Center, suffered a left hip injury during the exhibition that ended the event. Chen underwent surgery Wednesday, and the 10-week recovery process will keep him out of both the junior and senior world championships.
Chen would have been competing at his first senior world championships. He would have been the favorite at junior worlds.
