Just a week until we see Patrick on the ice again! I can’t wait! My prediction based on last year: He will wear one new costume and one old one. We shall see. Let’s start the countdown, shall we?

Pinned: TV Schedule and Time Zones

 

October 19: Seven Days to Until Skate Canada!

Just seven more days! How is Patrick really feeling? Probably nervous and excited, but not scared at all!

Is Patrick is still happily situated in British Columbia, breaking in his skates? Perhaps one of his longtime dreams to move to Vancouver is finally being realized. Which coach went with him? Or is he training by himself until he returns to Michigan?

During the past week I had anticipated more media of Patrick making various appearances, but it seems he has disappeared from the limelight for now. Not too worry, of course, since Skate Canada International is in less than two weeks!

 

October 14: Another (Old) Photo from the Agrodome

This photo was actually taken at the Agrodome back on September 28, but it was somehow missed by Instagram’s tagging system and I found it a different way. Maybe Patrick is still skating there – who knows?

Got the honor of skating with Patrick Chan the other day. #figureskating #yvr #fangirl @pchan31

October 12: Skate Canada Breaking the Ice Event

It seems that this year’s event at the Cricket Club was more of a miss. Unfortunately, Patrick as well as many of the top Canadian skater did not appear at this event, which was intended to be an opportunity for donors to meet the skaters they support.

 

October 6: Blast from the Past

I love it when fans post previously unseen footage of Patrick from the past! Here’s a clip of him practicing his Chopin LP from 2015 Grand Prix Final. He looks great clad in all black, but the stress on his face is visible.

 

October 5: Still Skating Beneath the Dome

October 3: Surprising and Delighting More Youngsters

Patrick happily surprised Kaylee at the PNE Agrodome in Vancouver, when he walked in at 2 p.m. on a Tuesday afternoon!

Patrick Chan Non-Nebelhorn Update, September 27-October 1, 2017

Last week, skating fans noticed the conspicuous absence of Patrick’s name from the Nebelhorn Trophy roster, which set off some speculation on the state of his health, why he dropped out, etc. According to Lynn Rutherford:

No announcement was made (which seems to be the norm for Patrick these days), but I have no doubt that he skipped this competition to do more important things. I hope he’s working on two nice new costumes for “Dust in the Wind” and “Hallelujah” as well! It seems that he spent last weekend in Vancouver and may still be there this week.

In the meantime, let’s enjoy some more photos I found from his last competition at the Onyx Trophy (scroll down below). And, if you want my take on how Patrick can overcome the “talent curse” this Olympic season, read on further!

Yesterday Patrick interviewed with Golden Skate’s Ted Flett about his upcoming season. It just happened to coincide with the unveiling of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympic medals, too. Patrick spoke of his interpretation of the song “Dust in the Wind” and how it will help him keep perspective during this crazy year.

 

September 21: Winter Olympics Medals Revealed

The ISU revealed all the medals for the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics. Nice! Below is the gold medal:

Hopefully these medals will last longer than the ones from Sochi. Look at the condition of Patrick’s silver medal:
