Chan dominates at Canada nationals


Three-time world champion Patrick Chan easily won the men’s short program Friday night in the Canadian figure skating championships.

The favorite heading into the Sochi Olympics next month, Chan opened with a huge quadruple toe-triple toe combination, but then doubled a planned triple Axel and also doubled a triple Lutz. He scored 89.12 points for the program .

“I just got ahead of myself, did the great quad toe-triple toe and then my mind starts racing — “Oh, my God, it’s going to be a great program,’ ” Chan said.
