At the 2010 Skate Canada International, Rippon had a collision with Patrick Chan during the morning practice before the short program but stated, "That was definitely the most exciting collision, maybe not the most dangerous."[23] He placed third in the short program with 77.53 points after executing a triple axel, a triple flip-triple toe loop combination and a triple lutz.

2011–12 season[edit]

In the 2011–12 season, Rippon was assigned to 2011 Skate Canada and 2011 Trophée Eric Bompard as his Grand Prix events. He opened the season with a 4th-place finish at Skate Canada. This competition marked Rippon's first attempt at including a quad jump in his free program. At Trophée Bompard, he was 4th in the short program, 3rd in the long, and finished 4th overall. Rippon won the silver medal at the 2012 U.S. Championships. He finished 4th at Four Continents and 13th at Worlds.

2012–13 season[edit]

In September 2012, Rippon announced a coaching change, moving to train with Rafael Arutyunyan in Lake Arrowhead, California.[26][27] At the 2012 Cup of China, Rippon collided with China's Song Nan – who sustained a concussion and withdrew – a minute into the final warm up before the free skate.[28][29] Rippon said, "I kind of turned around to go into a jump and I think when Nan Song and I saw each other we both tried to avoid each other, but we went in the same way and we went head first into each other."[28] Rippon finished 4th at the event and 8th at the 2012 NHK Trophy. At the 2013 U.S. Championships, he landed three triple Axels and finished 5th.[30] He was assigned to the 2013 Four Continents but withdrew after sustaining an ankle injury on February 2, 2013.[31]

2013–14 season[edit]

In October 2013, Rippon competed at the 2013 Skate America. He included a quad lutz in both his short and long programs. He set personal bests in both segments capturing the Silver medal and finishing as the top American over Max Aaron and Jason Brown.[32] In November he competed in NHK Trophy and posted a new ISU personal best in the short program 82.25. He landed a quad toe-loop in both segments and finished fourth overall.

2014–15 season[edit]

In October 2014, Rippon competed at the 2014 Finlandia Trophy finishing first in the free program and second overall. At the end of October he competed in Skate Canada finishing seventh in the free-skate and tenth in the standings. In November he improved his season performance with a strong long program at Trophy Bompard finishing third in the segment and fifth overall. It was a season plagued with equipment issues.[citation needed] Rippon adjusted his blade brand and mount, took on a new trainer to work with his team and met with renewed consistency at U.S. Nationals, landing effortless triple axels and once again including a quad lutz in his short and long programs. He went on to win the free-skate portion of the competition and finished second overall with the silver medal. He was assigned to both the Four Continents team and the Worlds team.[33]

2015–16 season[edit]

Rippon won gold at the 2016 U.S. Championships. He placed sixth at the 2016 World Championships in Boston with a lively program to a medley of Beatles tunes.[34] The audience gave him a standing ovation.[35]

Signature moves[edit]

Rippon's signature move is a triple lutz that he executes with both arms on his head, colloquially dubbed the "Rippon Lutz".[36][37] He is capable of performing the triple lutz-double toe loop-double loop combination with one hand over his head in all three jumps (colloquially the "'Tano Lutz" after Brian Boitano, who invented the move). He is also one of the few men able to do a competent lay-back spin.
