Champion figure skater Chan takes a break

Three-time world champion Patrick Chan is temporarily withdrawing from competitive figure skating. He will return next season and, in the meantime, will appear in invitational and exhibition programs.

At the Sochi Olympics earlier this year, the 23-year-old skater won silver in the men’s competition and the team event.

Chan, who has taken the national men’s championship title seven times also took time off earlier this year.

Figure skating is hugely popular with Canadian spectators.
