    I actually think Patrick is quicker and have much more sense in choosing the right words than an average 21 year old. But a politician? Nay, I agree he is too honest and transparent to be a politician. A lawyer like his dad might be a good career for him since he is gifted in speaking.

    Patrick is not naturally gifted in speaking. It's another area he has improved greatly - articulation. I guess it's part of growing up and maturing. He used to be somewhat inarticulate with words but relied on his genuine and jovial demeanor to get some of his points across, thus being liable to malicious spins in written reports. But he was so young and suddenly dealing with journalists of different genres and intentions. Besides his chronological and physical growth, his experiences as an elite athlete traveling all over the world and meeting the public and the media regularly have contributed much to his precocious maturity of today. I think he is now nicely balanced between being natural, sincere, and honest, yet assertive and in control of the conversation in a humble humorous manner. Not perfect yet, probably never will be just like all people, but he handles himself with class, expressing himself well in all kinds of situations most people his age are not able to deal with.

    Let the boy skate; he can decide whether he wants to be a politician or whatever later. I hear Mcdonald's is always hiring and they like him there.

    Yeah, welcome blainechan to our mad, hilarious, funny Patrick-ubering thread. BTW, you are not related to Mr Chan are you? Or it's just that Chan is such a common family name like Jones, Brown and of course Dai-Chan, Kozuka-Chan, Nathan Chen/Chan ...

    Holy cow ... did you freeze and blew up the vid to scrutinize his chest? I didn't notice he was wearing a necklace and ring

    Agree. He looked embarrassed too!

    On a serious and honest (like Patrick) note, I was first intrigued by this talented kid with the oldest coach. Watched his current and past skating vids and enjoyed watching the 'growth' in his skating. Although some people may think he is politically incorrect, I see his comments as naive honesty but never never with malice, sarcasm and intention to hurt. In fact for a 'boy' his age, some of his comments were introspective. I am happy that he did not give up after the 2010 Olympics for I can further enjoy his skating and watch him grow. To Mr and Mrs Chan I say, 'he is not only talented but a fine young man'. Well brought up. I can only hope the best is yet to come for Patrick.

    This is both entertaining and educational! Many thanks to Toronto Star and trains!

    I do have a question though. I thought the clock starts when the music starts, instead of when he moves.

    In bid to defend world title, Chan finds motivation in U.S. rival Jeremy Abbott.
