Q&A WITH FIGURE SKATER PATRICK CHAN

On the start of his third Olympic Winter Games:

“I felt really very much in control of my thoughts and how my body felt. It’s been four years since I’ve been here. I am the type of skater that takes time, since I’ve gotten older, to warm up and to get up to the quads and get comfortable in competition. This is a long two weeks and I am not going to look back too much and it’s a good opportunity to get the early jitters out.”

What it would mean to win Team Event gold:

“I think it would mean a lot to me to see my teammates around me, seeing them at the top of their lives and that feeling of being Olympic champions.That is going to be the greatest satisfaction in everything. This is why this is a team event. Some of us are going to make mistakes. We’ve got it started and I’m looking forward to it.”

On his short programme:

“Obviously, I am not super happy with the skate. I am going to be here a while and there are a lot of programmes to be competed. It’s not the best start I wanted, but I have the support of my teammates. They make me feel so much better even when it’s not the best skate, they are holding me up and making me feel like I belong here. That’s the best thing about the team event.”
