There was a silver lining to Patrick Chanís day at the rink.
The Toronto native took home the silver medal at the ISU Grand Prix in Moscow, despite not being particularly pleased with his long program.
Chan fell on his opening quadruple jump, but according to the 20-year-old the highlight was jumping back from his fall to land his triple axel in a combo with a triple toe loop.
ďThatís one of the most challenging parts of the program,Ē Chan told Skate Canada. ďI was pleased to recover from the quad fall. Itís only the second time Iíve attempted a quad in a long program so I think right now itís all about experience.íí
Czech Republicís Tomas Verner was moved from third place after the short program to win the gold with 230.31 points. Chan, who was first after the short program, came in second with 227.21 and Jeremy Abbott of the U.S., came in third with 217.21 points
