Patrick Chan – I am proud of YOU

February 20, 2010 jeansdream

It matters when it comes to medals.  Olympic medals – oh yes – who doesn’t want one.  Winning one is terrific.  But, owning one is not the most important thing in life.  Sportsmanship is better treasured and its impact will last much longer.

Patrick, I know you have tried hard.  I am sure I am not alone.  It’s heart wrecking to hear your apologetic statement to Canadians.  Perhaps the media has put too much on your shoulders.  Just know that there are ups and downs.  Everyone does, including the champs.  Like your uncle’s interview on the Chinese radio on the evening of Feb 19, the most important thing for those who love you and support you is to see a fine young gent like yourself enjoying and see the spirit of improving / perfecting yourself in figure skating.

At your age, I can’t really say you are too young (for Olympics), but hey, you ain’t too old either.  Take this as your “Olympics” handshake – now you’ve acquainted it.  Next time, you’ll mature to present a better self to it if you want to.  There are still lots to learn and don’t be afraid to try.

Don’t lose your heart. 
Live on your dream. 
Take on whatever you feel like challenging yourself at.

p.s.  the more I look at your Harry Rosen ad, the more I like your charitable spirit – lovely!!

    Feel sorry for Patrick’s and Canada’s lost. The disappointment is understandable but I hope he can and will refocus his energy to something positive. He is still very young and have time to excel in future competitions.

    I (and Patrick) had hoped for better results but, like you, I am proud of Patrick.
