Chan still a champion

Patrick Chan of Canada acknowledges the crowd after his performance.

Was it necessary for the Free Press to state Canadian men's figure skater Patrick Chan "skates to a sloppy silver" (Feb. 15)?

He had a few problems during his performance, but why so negative? Shouldn't we celebrate that, despite a couple of missteps, Chan was still able to reach the podium and win a silver medal? We should be proud of his accomplishments.

Patrick Chan may not have been crowned king with a gold medal, but he sure is a prince of a skater (Chan stumbles to silver -- 'sorry,' Feb. 15).

To have represented Canada is an achievement in itself, and he should feel no need to ever apologize.
