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.

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!

 

August 24: Nebelhorn Trophy

Update 9/2017: Patrick withdrew from the competition!

So Patrick will be going to Germany. The German skating fans are in for a treat!
