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!

For more details on his other assignments, go to the Skate Canada event schedule.

 

August 23: Another Lucky Youngster

What a lucky young skater who was not only inspired by Patrick, but had fun with him, too!

Skating with Patrick Chan 😘 is very inspiring and funπŸŒΊπŸ’#pchan31

As summer shortens and we hurtle towards the new skating season, Patrick manages to find time for fun, friends, flips… and interviews, of course!

August 12: Richmond Training Centre Photo

I’m sure this was taken the other day when Patrick was still in Ontario, but it’s nice to see him give a thumbs up!

“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)!

 

July 27: Sparkling Wine at the Vineyard

This just in – Patrick will soon have his own brand of sparkling wine!

So glad @pchan31 dropped by today. We'll keep everyone posted when his Patrick Chan Sparkling wine is released.

Ever since I saw this gorgeous fan’s photo (below) of Patrick Chan and Jeffrey Buttle wearing her crocheted scarves (cowls), I knew I had to find out more. VChan has met Patrick twice during Stars On Ice meet and greets during the past two years. Much thanks to her for generously sharing her media and experiences here!

As summer temperatures heat up, Patrick works hard and plays hard! See what he is doing for fun and why he loves Canada below!

Recently, several photos of him from past events were posted on social media, so keep checking this fan site for more updates to past blog posts. Thanks for visiting, and please share this site with other Pchiddy fans!

 

July 5: Training the Quad Flip

It wasn’t too long ago (in February, to be exact) that Patrick’s coach Oleg Epstein thought that he could learn another quad, but Patrick didn’t think it was necessary (link). Well, it looks like his quadruple flip is set to become a reality! As mentioned in this interview with Coach Tom Zakrajsek of Colorado Springs:

… I recently began collaborating with Marina Zoueva on several of her skaters, I am working with Patrick on his jump technique and consistency, as well as a quad flip. This experience has been invaluable to Max, who has said, “I watched Patrick train like a beast, so I must, too.”

Go, you beastly Blackbird!

Tickets Going on Sale for the 2018 Canadian Nationals

It is hard to believe that the next Canadian national figure skating competition will take place in a little over six months!

Canadian National Team Announcement

It was a given that Patrick would be selected for the team, but I wish him and the entire national team the very best as they work towards the Olympics!
