One broken world record and one broken nose. That pretty much sums up Canada’s efforts on Day 1 at the world figure skating championships.
The highlight of the day was Patrick Chan, who is off to a flying start after setting a world record Wednesday in the men’s short program.
The 20-year-old Toronto native chalked up a score of 93.02 after a flawless performance skating to Paul Desmond’s Take Five.
Chan topped the previous record of 90.3 set at the 2010 European championships by Russia’s Evgeni Plushenko
