Jan 26 (Reuters) - Twice world champion Nathan Chen became the first American to win four consecutive national titles in 32 years with a sparkling free skate in Greensboro, North Carolina on Sunday.

The 20-year-old, with the sell-out crowd cheerfully applauding his quad-dominated performance to music from the Rocketman soundtrack, scored 216.04 points for the free skate.

That earned the Yale University sophomore a combined 330.17 points as he equalled twice world gold medallist Brian Boitano's four titles, the last of which came in 1988.
