    With the first interview the guy was totally wrong. Chan being a guy would never be on easy street unless he won the Olympics and then even then it's not like mens is as big as ladies. Even he mentioned Peggy Fleming before he mentioned Boitano or Hamilton. And talking about Russian crowds ws intreresting.

    The second interview was notable for that funny moment where Chan is flustered by that media training question. LOL! But also people wouldn't survive doing a quint and that he does wish Plushenko would do 2014 but really a no answer would seem weird!

    It's great that he wants to keep pushing and three quads after no quads is just remarkable!

    I don't find Patrick being flustered by the media question. The interviewer for some reason was flustered with Patrick's Guiness record answer. And though Patrick answered April for Worlds, it was actually supposed to be in March when he went skiing on March 3. Even more .

    I forgot eTalk on Friday but watched it on Saturday. Patrick said he would do Dancing With The Stars if invited and that he has a head start, having learned some ballroom dancing. I don't see how he would find time though.

    ^^^^ When a student is ready, the teacher will appear. Often it's the learner's readiness that determines what s/he gets out of the same advice/teaching.

    The CS camp has a whole team of specialists who work with all the skaters training there, but not all get the same and achieve the same out of the available help. Patrick's presence there has been very inspiring and we saw both Flatt and Bradley, who have talked about his influence, rise up to be win the US titles. So CS has produced two American and one Canadian/World champions. Not bad. Now both Flatt and Bradley have left, but quite a few young up and comers are moving there to train, partly to be with the elite.

    Elsewhere, even Frank Caroll is now getting scientific help for Mirai.

    World champion Chan practising in Richmond Hill
    Gold medalist works with choreographer to perfect his skills


    Having been put through the paces by Nichol during a three-hour skate that started at 9 a.m., he took a quick break to speak with media and pose for photographs with Mayor Dave Barrow.

    Before playfully swapping his gold medal for the mayor’s chain of office, Chan continued to rave about the local facility.
    Apart from the gold-medal performance, the four-time Canadian champion is coming off two weekend shows in Brampton and will travel to China and South Korea for shows in June and July, before the next grand prix skating season begins in the fall.

    Still delighting in his world title, Chan called that result a perfect end to the season, though he’s now taking steps to defend his title and hopefully continue what some media are calling the “Chan dynasty”.

    “A gold and world record is great and I worked hard for it, but no, I’m not satisfied. I don’t really know when I will be satisfied. I guess that’s a good thing,” said Chan with a laugh.

    “I want to dominate,” he explained, with a cool confidence, “I think that’s a good start to satisfaction."
    Yes, that is a good start.

    What show is he going to do in Korea? I know he will be taking part in Artristry On Ice in China and Taipei, with Yagudin and Weir , among others.
