Karen Chen Career

Chen began learning to skate in 2005. She won gold on the national intermediate level in 2011 and then gold competing as a novice in 2012. The following season, she competed on the junior level at the 2013 U.S. Championships, placing fourth. She made her international debut at the 2013 Gardena Spring Trophy where she won gold on the novice level.

Chen began the season at the 2021 CS Autumn Classic International, where she unexpectedly finished off the podium in fourth place, behind Cypriot Marilena Kitromilis and South Koreans You Young and Ji Seo-yeon. In light of the jump errors in both programs, she vowed to “continue to work on my consistency.” At her second Challenger event of the season, the 2021 CS Finlandia Trophy, Chen placed sixth.

Assigned to begin the Grand Prix at the 2021 Skate Canada International, Chen was sixth in the short program. She was tenth in the free skate after falling twice and having several jumps called underrotated, and dropped to tenth place overall. Speaking afterward, she said, “practices have been solid, so it’s been tough to leave Vancouver with a program like that.” At her second Grand Prix event, the 2021 Internationaux de France, she placed fifth overall after ranking fifth in both the short program and the free skate. She reiterated afterward that she was working on translating her improved practices to competition.

Entering the 2022 U.S. Championships hoping to make her second Olympic team, Chen placed second in the short program, narrowly behind Karen Chen but a few points clear of third-place Alysa Liu, who withdrew before the free skate due to a positive COVID-19 test. Chen was second in the free skate as well despite four underrotated jumps, and took the silver medal, the only senior podium placement she had not previously occupied. The following day she was named to the American Olympic team.

ROC Team

She ranked fifth, four ordinals below Russian skater Kamila Valieva, as a result of which the United States dropped behind the ROC team. Speaking afterward about skating under pressure, Chen remarked “at the end of the day, it’s coming from myself. I want to skate well for my team, for myself, my coach, my family, for all these people.” However, she said she was pleased that she had recovered well from the fall.

She competed again in the free skating portion of the team event, earning 131.52 points for a fourth-place finish, and winning a silver medal with the U.S. team. In the short program of the women’s event, Chen made the same error she did in the team event short program, falling on her triple loop attempt, placing thirteenth in the segment. Seventeenth in the free skate with multiple jump errors, she dropped to sixteenth overall.

Days after the Olympics concluded, Vladimir Putin ordered an invasion of Ukraine, as a result of which the International Skating Union banned all Russian and Belarusian skaters from competing at the 2022 World Championships. This had a major impact on the women’s field, dominated by Russians for most of the preceding eight years. Chen placed eighth in the short program after singling her triple loop attempt. Eighth in the free skate as well, Chen came eighth overall.

Where did she attend her High school and University? What was her major?

She was homeschooled via Connections Academy in high school. Chen has expressed interest in majoring in the medical field. She was admitted to Cornell University’s School of Human Ecology as part of the class of 2023 and will major in Human Biology, Health, and Society on a pre-med track.

Chen originally did not plan to take any gap years or defer her education while preparing for the 2022 Winter Olympics but decided to take a two-year leave of absence after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
