Skaters eager to begin nationals

After a disappointing third place finish at the International Skating Union Grand Prix Final last month in Sochi, Russia— the host city for the 2014 Winter Olympics — Chan took the opportunity to learn from former world champions Kurt Browning, Elvis Stojko and Jeffrey Buttle as he toured four Ontario cities with them afterwards.

Chan, 22, has learned a great deal from Browning in particular and is hoping to apply his newfound knowledge when he competes in the Canadian championships that begin Sunday at the Hershey Centre.
