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.

Although skating season has not yet officially started, last weekend I was pleasantly surprised to see Patrick’s new Olympic programs unveiled at a competition for the very first time! Although these were early versions seen from a fan cam, “Dust in the Wind” and “Hallelujah” have already elicited tears and smiles, leaving skating fans yearning for more.
Upcoming: Skate Canada High Performance Camp!
Next up – High Performance Camp (HPC)! Patrick may be there already, as he’s been keeping a low profile this summer, but Skate Canada promised to let us know. Read my post about last year’s HPC here!

“I want to enjoy the summer while I have it.” ~Patrick Chan
This sums up perfectly Patrick’s attitude toward these precious summer months that will fly by until autumn comes again. From training and preparing his new programs to sparkling wine, throwing the first pitch, playing golf, wakesurfing, selling his car, and doing ice stunts, Patrick has his hands full of fun (and a mix of frustration, anxiety, stress, and happiness too)!
