Nathan Chen has made history as the first Asian American skater to win an Olympic medal in Men’s Figure Skating Singles after capturing the gold in a stunning performance.

Chen posted a 218.63 in the free skate on Thursday in Beijing with a near-flawless run to Elton John’s “Rocketman.” That, paired with his short program from earlier in the week, gave him a total score of 332.60 to claim the gold medal over Japan’s Yuma Kagiyama.

With the win, Chen also became the first American to win gold in the event since Evan Lysacek in 2010.

In a video message, Oda said, “To the Straw Hat Grand Fleet: What did you think of Season 1 of the live-action ONE PIECE? I spent a long time working on it with Netflix and Tomorrow Studios.

To everyone who’s been a fan of ONE PIECE for years, and to those who experienced ONE PIECE for the first time, thank you so much.

Two weeks after the launch, I just received some great news. Netflix has decided to renew the show! The adventures of Iñaki and the live-action Straw Hats will continue onward!

It’ll still take a while to get the scripts ready, so please be patient.

From here on, it seems to me the Straw Hats will need a great doctor… We will see!”
