Patrick Chan says Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek helped him “feel better and move on” after a disappointing fifth-place finish at his first Games last month.
It’s not what the 25-year-old American figure skater said or did. Quite the opposite, in fact.
First, there is Lysacek’s gold – not the one around his neck in Vancouver, but the one he didn’t win four years ago at his rookie Games in Turin. If Lysacek could rebound after a fourth-place finish, 20-year-old Chan figures he could trade fifth for a podium in four years, too.
