Patrick Chan of Team Canada reacts after his short program at the 2013 ISU World Figure Skating Championships held at Budweiser Gardens on Wednesday afternoon (March 13) in London, Ontario, Canada.
The 22-year-old skater shared with press after claiming the top spot with 98.37 points, the highest score ever: “I worked very hard for the past three weeks which really paid off. I do this program every day in practice. The Canadian fans help me to be more focused, concentrate more and they lift a lot of pressure.”
He added, “Today I had no luck, just a lot of hard work that paid off. This feels almost as great as the Vancouver Olympics. Setting a new world record is just the icing on the cake.”
