Jeremy Abbott Finishes Free Skate in 12th After Fall in Short; Patrick Chan Wins Silver Medal at Sochi Olympics

Jeremy Abbott soaks up the applause from the crowd after the free skate for Men’s Figure Skating at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics held at the at Iceberg Skating Palace on Friday night (February 14) in Sochi, Russia.

The 28-year-old figure skater bounced back after taking a nasty fall in the short program the day before which resulted in a hip injury. Nonetheless, Jeremy wanted to finish.

“I was in a lot of pain so I had to scale back a little bit. But after yesterday, I want to finish the competition strong and just finish,” he shared just before taking the ice. He finished in 12th place.

Team mate Jason Brown, who skated last, took 9th place overall.

Canada’s Patrick Chan took home the silver medal after his free skate set to “Four Seasons”, just between Japan’s Yuzuru Hanyu (gold) and Kazakhstan’s Denis Ten (bronze).
