Patrick Chan Takes Silver at Grand Prix Final 2013

Patrick Chan shows off his silver medal during day two of the 2013 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Final held at Marine Messe Fukuoka on Friday (December 6) in Fukuoka, Japan.

The 22-year-old Canadian figure skater placed second after a strong free skate program, just behind Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu.

“Part of me says it’s not a big deal, but also another part of me says there was a lot of good things I did here after a bad short program, pulling out a great long. That was regaining my composure and my concentration,” Patrick shared with press.

He added, “Honestly, I started thinking about my previous performances in Japan. I really don’t have the best track record here. Every time I come back to Japan, I relive those moments — they were really tough times.”
