Nathan Chen leads U.S. team looking to defend at World Team Trophy

Three-time world champion Nathan Chen leads the U.S. team seeking to defend its title at the 2021 ISU World Team Trophy, slated for April 15-17 in Osaka, Japan.

Announced Wednesday, the team also includes Jason Brown, Karen Chen, Bradie Tennell, the pairs’ team of Alexa Knierim/Brandon Frazier and ice dancers Kaitlin Hawayek/Jean-Luc Baker.

All eight skaters competed at the recently concluded world championships, in which Nathan Chen won an impressive third consecutive world title with five clean quads in his free skate after trailing Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu and Yuma Kagiyama after the short program.
