MISSISSAUGA, Ontario -- Launching a comeback after an 18-month hiatus, Patrick Chan had been frustrated to find figure skatings version of a slam dunk contest.All about the big jumps, skaters were jam-packing their programs to score major points.So Chan had no choice but to evolve with it.The three-time world champion will attempt three quadruple jumps in his long program for the first time at this weeks Skate Canada International, in an effort to be more competitive with the worlds top skaters.I think that will be a good challenge for the other guys for the podium, Chan said,Chan, whose artistry on the ice is considered a world standard, knew that to challenge for an Olympic medal at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games he needed to crank up the technical difficulty. He added the quad salchow to the two quad toe loops he already had in the free skate.Chan said training with Nathan Chen, a 17-year-old American whos known for his big jumps, has helped. Chen landed four quads in his long program last season.He is the epitome of what skating has become, Chan said. (My perspective) has somehow switched now, because I see it every day. I see how technically stronger he is than I am. Ive learned just to accept it and be amazed by the ability of these kids.Hes just strolling in and. . . quad Lutz. Its like `Oh my god. Are you kidding me? I never thought this would be possible. But it also makes me go into my quad salchow thinking, `All right, this is just another jump. I wont make a big deal out of it. It just normalizes everything.Not much has been normal for Chan recently. Coach Kathy Johnson left him in August, and so he moved to Canton, Michigan, to train with Marina Zoueva, the Russian coach who guided Canadas Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir to Olympic ice dance gold and silver.To have Patrick in the skating arena, its like having a Rembrandt in your home. Its a piece of art, Zoueva said. The ice is my home, and hes like a piece of art, how he skates and how he trains. Its a real privilege.Zoueva said confidence is the key with Chan, who landed two beautiful quads in practice Thursday morning at the Hershey Centre. He frets about being old.Marina has told me many times, `Dont say youre 25, dont say you cant do this. Its ridiculous, said Chan.Zoueva tells him about Zhao Hongbo, who won pairs gold for China at the Vancouver Olympics at age 36. Or George Foreman, who came back from a lengthy retirement to regain the world heavyweight boxing title at age 45.He needs just to believe he can do it, Zoueva said. Because he really can do anything.Skate Canada is a good early test for Chan. Hell be pushed by Japans Yuzuru Hanyu, the Olympic gold medalist in Sochi.The event also marks the first major competition for Virtue and Moir in more than two years. The ice dancers are making a comeback after taking two seasons off.In a lot of ways, its very familiar to us, weve done this a lot of times, and in a lot of ways were coming at it with a fresh perspective and a new team, and things feel different, Virtue said.The two moved to Montreal to train with Marie-France Dubreuil and Patrice Lauzon, and have set their sights on claiming Olympic gold in Pyeongchang.The sports grown, so we know we have to be better than weve ever been, Moir said. And thats part of the challenge. We cant come back two years later and try and be the same athlete and win. It just doesnt work. Brian Dumoulin Jersey . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. Green Penguins Jerseys . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side. http://www.authenticpenguinsshopnhl.com/phil-kessel-jersey/ .
