    Also in the bio:

    He practiced many other sports including tennis, skiing, swimming and taekwondo before focusing on skating.
    eta And at the risk provoking another round of cries of treason by bringing this up, spikydurian, did you read his interview in Singapore that he would like to represent S'pore in skiing or tennis when he's done competing in figure skating? He loves the food there and, in time, who knows, maybe durian too?

    Oh yes, I read that and it did occur to me that the hordes of haters will seize upon this line to annihilate him but then yet again, out of context quote to put him in a bad light. I think I remember reading that Michelle Kwan said the 'same thing'.
    If it's finance he's keen in ... the top few markets/financial centres in the world - Hongkong, Singapore, London, New York, Tokyo. That leaves four choices since Patrick doesn't speak Japanese.
    Durian

    Don't forget Dubai, where, after last Worlds, Patrick job shadowed a skater friend's father who was a commodity trader. I doubt very much he would settle there though. One should settle down where there is the best food.

    Boeing, I don't know when he did it, but I only just discovered he replaced car tinkering with paper trading in his hobby list in his ISU Bio I linked.

    TSN poll: Do you think Patrick Chan is the greatest Canadian Men's figure skater of all time?

    Go vote with your conscience. You may vote for or with The Great Kurt Browning.

    ^ Patrick is winning, 61.4% to 38.5%.

    Evidently 0.1% is undecided.

    I think Chan will be the greatest Canadian Men's figure skater of all time. I'd love to send that message to Stojko.

    I can't vote. In terms of athletism and the world records he got in competitions, yes, Patrick Chan is the greatest one. But in terms of accomplishment on everything, Kurt Browning is the one. It's too early to ask this question. Patrick hasn't done skating yet. We'll see it after Sochi.

    Eh. He should have said, "Plushenko? -- get off the ice, gramps, and take your walker with you."

    "Weir? Pul-lease."

    "Fernandez? Party, party, party, doesn't train worth a lick."

    I voted for Patrick, four times! Yeah, I cheated. Seriously, Patrick is BETTER than Kurt technically.
