Dear friends and fellow fans,
Two years ago, inspired by Patrick Chan’s artistry on ice, I created this site dedicated to him — something I felt he deserved. The dramatic journey we took with him was too good not to commemorate in this way, and I remain thrilled for seeing the wonderful finish of his competitive career at the Pyeongchang Olympics.
As you know, compiling and transcribing Patrick’s interviews, photos, and videos from various global online sources has been a laborious process, and I spent almost all of my spare time working on this project for the past two years. In addition, I have interviewed and collaborated with his fans, tweeted my encouragement to Patrick through quotes and graphics, and even created two music videos. I have no regrets – this has been a fantastic adventure!
Now, I need to step back and take care of my own life for a while. Recently Google awarded me a scholarship to study web development, so I am taking a hiatus from regular blogging for a few months. Thank you all so much for visiting and for supporting this site! If you want to reach me, please feel free to write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And to Patrick and/or his family, representatives, or sponsors: If you need help with updating his website or anything else, I would love to help! You can reach me at email@example.com.
Hugs to all and see you soon!

It’s hard to believe that the Olympics concluded one week ago! As a storyteller who was drawn to “The Journey of Patrick Chan” during the last part of his competitive figure skating career, I am thrilled that I was able to witness an unexpected but satisfying conclusion to his odyssey full of exhilarating wins, crushing defeats, frustration, angst, and a comeback filled with high drama.
Since I am a relatively new fan of Patrick’s (from 2015), I beg your pardon in advance if you have followed him since the first day he burst on to the skating scene. I am sure you know of circumstances, people, places, and situations that I don’t know. However, I will attempt to lay out my honest observations of his journey’s end below.
