Although it’s hard some days to wake up an hour earlier to do the gym workout as opposed to other skaters who just show up to the rink, I know that if I don’t do it, my day will be much worse. I might as well not even skate, actually.

Even though I’m very Westernized as an individual and very Canadian, I guess I’ve lost some of my Chinese culture.

Experience is a funny thing. You don’t always have it when you need it.

Patrick Chan

I carry a lot of muscle easily.

Patrick Chan

I do love video games. But after a while, you feel like you really need to get up and do something.

Patrick Chan

I hope I can compete in one or two Olympics in my career. Of course I would like to win a medal, but just being there would be awesome.

I know that, in hockey, the object of the game is simple in that you have to get the puck into the net. With figure skating, it’s not as simple, and there is a ton of work that goes into it.

Patrick Chan

I love figure skating and what I am able to express creatively. I want to leave a legacy in the sport.

Patrick Chan

I skate just to satisfy my own desire and not care about other people’s desire for me to do well.

Patrick Chan

I tried all kinds of sports when I was a kid, like soccer and tennis and golf, and, in fact, started skating to be able to play hockey.

Patrick Chan

I was born in Canada for a reason. It was because my parents wanted me to have the freedoms that this country offers.

I’m extremely well recognized in Korea just because of what I do on the ice, and there is a lack of that in Canada because hockey is our sport and it will be for eternity.

Patrick Chan

I’m not a big traveller.

Patrick Chan

I’m not good at multitasking.

I’m slowly feeling more Chinese and feel I should be more proud of being Chinese and appreciate where I’ve come from.

Patrick Chan

I’m very proud I’m Chinese and represent the Chinese community.

If you look at all the sports in China, the government is extremely involved and they are extremely proud of their athlete.

Patrick Chan

In skating or any amateur sport, as athletes we share something in common: the cost of training is quite a burden on our parents or on the athletes themselves trying to find a way to pay for their costs.

Patrick Chan

Injuries are a huge thing for skating. I think skating is a very unnatural sport for the body, very tough on the joints.

Patrick Chan

My parents are very good parents and have already said that they will look after me until the end of my skating career.

Patrick Chan

Paris is beautiful, but nothing beats home.

Patrick Chan

There isn’t quite a feeling you get from playing video games that you get when you’re playing sports, which is like a sense of euphoria. You just get the satisfaction of doing something active and feeling good after.

Patrick Chan

When I was born, my parents were huge into skiing. I grew up on Mont Blanc, skiing on that hill. I was really a ski baby. Loved it; I still love it.
