  • Nathan Chen, the star of US figure skating, had a disappointing debut at the Winter Olympics.
  • Chen finished fourth in the team event after falling and botching a landing.
  • Chen admitted he was nervous after his run, leading to some concerns about how he'll handle the men's individual event, where he's a medal favorite.
