Patrick Chan 2017 Four Continents: Part 2

Patrick went into the free skate in fifth place after the short program, just like last year. And just like last year, he bested Boyang Jin by less than a point, but then missed the podium and ended up in fourth. Had he skated and scored the way he did at Canadian nationals, he would have gotten the bronze. Nevertheless, his excellent program components score (PCS) was second only to Yuzuru Hanyu by less than two points, and I greatly respect him attempting all three quads in his program under such difficult competitive circumstances. Now, onward and upward!

Video of Patrick waiting to go out on the ice – he kept moving and smiled when the spotlight shone on him.

Patrick and Yuzuru made plans as they waited to go out on the ice. Patrick leaned on Shoma and Nathan: “Gentlemen, let me borrow your shoulders for a moment.”

Another closer video showed Patrick working out his plans on the palm of his hand!

Another video of the same scene, this one showing Patrick hooting and cheering on the other skaters.

Group entrance on to the ice:

Later, Patrick and Yuzu did 3Ts at the same time (0:12 of video)!

Misha Ge herded Patrick and the guys together before they went out on the ice. Patrick chatted with Nathan before they went out and weaved in-between the other skaters in a line:

What Patrick Said About It

Patrick said in this interview:

I need to work on my snap off the ice and being more efficient,” said Chan. “I’m looking forward to going back home and working on that. Those are also things that I can work on both on and off the ice.”

Without seeing a video I can’t be sure, but Patrick did not seem upset at all, but focused on what he needs to do to improve himself for Worlds. Good for him!
