    If you are on Twitter, make sure you follow @SportsWkndScott (Scott Russell from CBC). He is tweeting pictures of Patrick on the Olympic ice already....first man on practice! Also, saw a picture on Skate Canada's facebook page of Patrick as the first athlete through outfitting to get his team outfit. I think our guy is raring to go!

    Here is hoping Patrick will be able to keep his nerves under control and will not forget to enjoy himself because I have to agree with what blueglass said earlier that sometimes he seems to be worrying too much about everything.

    omg the Olympics suddenly seem real now. Good luck Patrick!!

    Any reports on how the practice went? It's probably a little awkward being the only one there.

    Surely it would be ideal to have the chance to be alone on the ice, with no one to watch or watch out for on the first go.

    Thank you everyone for the pictures and Pani for the article. For those who may not have Google Translate on their computer, here's a snippet of what Patrick said:
    Work out normally, as an ordinary Grand Prix - said Chan told reporters. - Training went well, despite the fact that I still feel the jet lag in the head and legs. Landed a quadruple jump, but, frankly, the air felt a little lost.

    "I'd been training and speaking when clearly know where everything is, and follow my schedule. I do not like surprises happen. So I acquainted with the situation while constituting schedule for yourself - said the skater. - For example, today the bus was going longer than I expected, so I did not have time to practice their group. Fortunately, I was allowed to go to the next, because there was no one, and if I came later, and this would have happened to work out I just could not " .
    Can anyone tell me whether this huge rink is only the practice rink or it will be rink where the competition will be held?

    Seven photos from yahoo sports:

    Patrick Chan trains in Sochi before the Olympics open

    The second photo is amazing!!

    ETA: Oops, the link is now bringing up the cool pic as the first one. It's the one with complete SOCHI 2014 filling out the whole photo and Patrick skating in front of it.
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    His skating is dreamy.
