    News Patrick Chan preparing two new programs

    New article on Patrick Chan. Article reads:-

    After successfully defending his world title, Chan said he spent a lot of time in Asia doing shows and has just finished a two-week vacation where he “had a blast” surfing in Indonesia. He also spent time in Singapore where he loves the food and culture and has many friends. He’s now getting ready to head to Toronto to work on two new programs. He’s going to work with a new choreographer, who he won’t name yet, and has not yet chosen his music. He’s been working with Toronto choreographer Lori Nichol for five years. In mid-April, coach Christy Krall resigned citing a difference in coaching philosophies. Chan trains about 25 hours a week, noting he spends almost as much time off the ice as on. He does regular workouts including running and weight training and has been practising modern dance for about a year and a half. “It’s a whole different realm of movement than physical exercise,” he enthuses. “There’s flexibility and strength you don’t get from any other exercise.” The lithe skater, who landed two clean quads in this year’s free program at worlds, talks about adding a quad flip or quad Lutz to his repertoire, though he’s not guaranteeing they’ll appear in next season’s programs. But working on new choreography and new quads will keep things fresh and exciting, he said.
    And here is a further new article on Patrick. This article reads:-

    “I’ve decided to do two brand new programs which isn’t very common of me — I usually keep one of my programs, but I wanted to experiment and expand to another area of my skating ability,” said Chan, who spent the day signing autographs, visiting the IWK and hosting a dinner at Casino Nova Scotia. “It’s going to be quite interesting to try different choreographer and hopefully I’ll have a good season next year.”
    And here is a video of Patrick's Winnipeg Free Press interview.

    Has he set a timescale on when he is going to appoint his new coach?

    He is going to have his work cut out putting two new program's together in time, given that he has yet to find a new coach and choreographer.

    Great to know Patrick will be having 2 new programs next season. Yay!
    And I hope he does so for Sochi Olympic season, too.

    I would love Love LOVE him skating to the classical piece, something similar to his EX Elegie, as his competitive program.
