Jin Boyang (Chinese: 金博洋; pinyin: Jīn Bóyáng; October 3, 1997) is a Chinese figure skater. He is the 2016 World bronze medalist, the 2016 Four Continents silver medalist, and a three-time (2014-2016) Chinese national champion.[1] On the junior level, he is the 2015 World Junior silver medalist and the 2013 JGP Final champion.

Jin Boyang 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).[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]

Career[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]

2012–13 season[edit]

Jin debuted on the Junior Grand Prix (JGP) 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.

2013–14 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 Chinese Championships. He finished sixth at the 2014 World Junior Championships in Sofia, Bulgaria.

2014–15 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 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.

2015–16 season[edit]

Jin received two 2015–16 Grand Prix assignments.[8] At the 2015 Cup of China, he won the silver medal behind reigning World champion Javier Fernández. 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. At his debut Four Continents Championships, in Taipei, he 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. He placed second overall at this competition behind Canada's Patrick Chan by a narrow difference of 0.38 points. Jin won the bronze medal at the 2016 World Championships in Boston.
