Olympian Patrick Chan Reveals His Skating Heroes (Video)

You might know a few things about Canadian Olympian Patrick Chan: details like how he's a three-time world figure skating champion, a Montrealer who's fluent in three languages (English, French, Cantonese). Maybe you even know he tweets under the (hilarious) handle of @PChiddy.

But with the 2014 Sochi Olympics just six months away, CBC Sports is getting you better acquainted with athletes you'll be screaming for come winter, and today they began rolling out a new video portrait series.

Chan is the first to make his debut, and watch the video below to hear more about his Road to Sochi and the heroes who've helped him inspire him on the way.

(Hint: Someone must be a major Battle of the Blades fan.)
