Jin Boyang (Chinese: 金博洋; pinyin: Jīn Bóyáng; Mandarin pronunciation: [tɕín pwǒ jǎŋ]; born October 3, 1997) is a Chinese figure skater. He is a two-time World bronze medalist (2016–2017), the 2018 Four Continents champion, the 2017 Asian Winter Games silver medalist, and a four-time (2014–2017) Chinese national champion.[1] He is the first Chinese skater to medal in the men's singles at the World Figure Skating Championships. On the junior level, he is the 2015 World Junior silver medalist and the 2013 JGP Final champion.

Jin is the first skater to ever land a quad lutz-triple toe loop combination in international competition,[2] the first skater to have landed four quad jumps in a free skate and six quads in international competition,[3][4] and the former record holder of scoring the most amount of points on one element (the quad lutz-triple toe loop combination).[5]

Personal life[edit]

Jin was born on October 3, 1997, in Harbin, China.[6] His parents formerly competed in middle to long-distance running.[7] Jin enrolled at the Harbin Institute of Physical Education in 2013 and graduated in 2017.[8][9] He enjoys electronics, music, and the internet.[10]

Career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Jin started skating at age seven and a half, having become interested in the activity when he attended one of Shen/Zhao's ice shows.[7] His first coach was Wang Junxiang.[7]

2012–2013 season: JGP debut[edit]

Jin debuted on the Junior Grand Prix (JGP) series in the 2012–2013 season. After taking gold in France and silver in Slovenia,[11][12] he finished fifth at the JGP Final and fourth at the 2013 World Junior Championships in Milan, Italy.

2013–2014 season: First national title[edit]

In the 2013 JGP series, Jin won his assignments in Latvia and Estonia and then obtained gold at the JGP Final in Fukuoka, Japan. He won his first senior national title at the Chinese Championships. He finished sixth at the 2014 World Junior Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria.

2014–2015 season: Silver medal at Junior Worlds[edit]

Jin won both of his Junior Grand Prix events, in Slovenia and Japan, and was the top qualifier for the Junior Grand Prix Final, where he placed 2nd after the short program. However, a 5th-place free skate left him in 4th overall. He won his second national title at the Championships. Jin concluded his season with a silver medal at the 2015 World Junior Championships in Tallinn, Estonia, having placed 5th in the short program and first in the free skate.

2015–2016 season: Senior international debut[edit]

Jin received two 2015 Grand Prix assignments.[13] At the 2015 Cup of China, he won the silver medal behind reigning World champion Javier Fernández.[14] He became the first man to land a quad lutz triple toe and also the first to land a quad lutz with a positive GOE.[15] At the 2015 NHK Trophy, Jin took silver behind reigning Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu, thus qualifying for the 2015 Grand Prix Final in Barcelona, where he finished fifth.[16] At the 13th National Winter Games of China, he represented the city of Harbin and finished first in both short program and free skate.[17][18] Making his Four Continents debut, in Taipei, Jin landed a total of six quadruple jumps in his programs and achieved new personal bests in his short program, free skate, and combined total scores. With a quad lutz, quad salchow, and two quad toe loops in his free skate, he also became the first skater to land three kinds of quads in a single program, and ultimately placed second overall behind Canada's Patrick Chan by a narrow difference of 0.38 points.[19][20] At the 2016 World Championships in Boston, Jin won the bronze medal and became the first Chinese man to medal in men's singles on the world stage.[21]

2016–2017 season: Second bronze at Worlds[edit]

Jin placed fifth at the 2016 Skate America and won silver at the 2016 Cup of China. He ranked seventh in the series standings and thus did not qualify for the 2016–2017 Grand Prix Final.[22] Later in the season, at the Chinese National Championships, Jin placed second in the SP but rebounded in the free, and was able to win his fourth straight national title.[23]

Jin repeated as world bronze medalist at the 2017 World Championships in Helsinki, achieving new personal bests in his short, free, and overall combined total scores.[24] His average program components score increased almost a whole point per component compared to the previous year, an almost unprecedented one-year improvement.

2017–2018 season: Olympic debut[edit]

Jin started his season at the 2017 CS Finlandia Trophy. He placed 2nd in the short program, 3rd in the free skate and won the gold medal overall.[25] His Grand Prix assignments for this season were 2017 Cup of China and 2017 Skate America. Jin reportedly had injured his right ankle, as the head coach of the Chinese national team, Hongbo Zhao, said in an interview after the Cup of China that Jin competed with a foot injury.[26] Jin confirmed that he sprained both of his ankles due to loose boot laces.[27][28] He placed second at the Cup of China[29] and 4th at the Skate America.[30] He withdrew from the Grand Prix Final and Chinese Nationals due to the ankle injuries.[31][32]

At 2018 Four Continents, his first competition post injury, Jin surpassed 100 points in the short program for the first time internationally, with a score of 100.17.[33] In the free skate he scored 200.78 points[34], for an overall score of 300.95, surpassing the 200 and 300 point barrier once again and winning the gold medal over 2017 World silver medalist Shoma Uno.[35]

Jin placed 4th at the 2018 Winter Olympics,[36] only 7.47 points behind third place finisher Javier Fernández.[37] His placement is the highest of any Chinese athlete competing in men's single skating in Olympic history so far. At the 2018 World Championships, he placed fourth in the short program but dropped to 19th overall after ranking 23rd in the free skate.[38]
