Jin Boyang (Chinese: 金博洋; pinyin: Jīn Bóyáng; October 3, 1997) is a Chinese figure skater. Jin is the 2015 World Junior silver medalist, 2013 JGP Final champion and a three-time (2014-2016) Chinese national champion.[1] He 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 a competition,[3][4] and the record holder of scoring the most amount of points on one element (the quad lutz-triple toe loop combination).[citation needed]

Career[edit]

2012-2013 season[edit]

Jin debuted on the Junior Grand Prix series in the 2012–13 season. After taking gold in France and silver in Slovenia, he finished fifth at the JGP Final and fourth at the 2013 World Junior Championships in Milan, Italy.

2013-2014 season[edit]

In the 2013–14 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 2013-14 Chinese Figure Skating Championships. He came in sixth at the 2014 World Junior Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria.

2014-2015 season[edit]

In the 2014-15 season, 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 2014-15 Chinese Figure Skating Championships. He finished his season with a silver medal at the 2015 World Junior Figure Skating Championships, placing 5th in the short program and first in the free skate with a personal best score of 156.85 and 229.70 overall.

2015-2016 season[edit]

For the 2015-16 season, Jin was assigned to compete at 2015 Cup of China and 2015 NHK Trophy.[5] At 2015 Cup of China, Jin placed second behind reigning World Champion Javier Fernández. At 2015 NHK Trophy, Jin placed second behind reigning Olympic Champion Yuzuru Hanyu, thus qualifying for the 2015-16 Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final. Jin finished fifth at the Final.
