2010 Winter Olympic Games: Patrick Chan

All Smiles

Patrick Chan was Canada’s Big Shot at an Olympic Medal in Figure Skating this year at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. Patrick is all over the Olympic Coverage as Canada had high hopes for him because Figure Skating is such a prestigious event. He fell just short of his dream as more experienced athletes took home the medals.


15 Years to #1


Patrick is 20 years old and he has been skating ever since he was just 5 years old. He started competiting World Wide in 2004, but he has never been to the Winter Olympics until this year. He has just recently started to mature as a great skater finishing the last 3 years as the #1 Skater in Canada. At such a young age, Patrick has lots of time to get better, so there will be a few more Olympic Games for him to Go For Gold


Lucky #7


Patrick came 7th Place at the Men’s Short Program and 5th place at the Free Skate, this year at the 2010 Olympics. Russian Skater, Evgeni Plushenko, and Reigning Olympic Champion from America, Evan Lysacek's, set Olympic Records for most points at these events so it would have been a miracle for young Patrick to beat these experienced opponents. Patrick will have to wait until 2014 to make his dream of winning an Olympic Gold come true.


Media Man


Patrick is doing a great job to market himself as a Great Figure Skater. He is on most major Canadian TV Stations getting recognition for his chances to win a medal. He has a website http://www.patrickchan.ca where you can watch Videos of him, look at his Pictures, and even Contact him if you are a fan. The great media coverage he is getting is the perfect way for him to get work all over the World, Figure Skating with Big Companies.


Enough Silver Already… Canada Wants Gold!


Patrick is living in the shadows of some of the All-Time Great Canadian Athletes. Brian Orser and Elvis Stoyko are well-known all over the World for their Silver Medal finishes at 4 different Winter Olympics. But the Canadians are still looking for a Canadian to finish at the Olympics with a Gold Medal in the Mens Or Ladies Singles Competition… Will Patrick be the 1st?

    I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.

    The Cowboys have cut Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, from the team. Is this an expression of the conformity policy so deeply rooted in American athletics?
