A disappointed Patrick Chan apologized not once but twice after winning a silver medal in men's figure skating on Friday.
“All Canadians say sorry, but I’m sorry. I’m disappointed in myself. I had that chance and I didn’t grasp it," he told CBC shortly after his skate.
"I love you guys. I'm sorry," Chan also said to the camera.
But Canadians were having none of it. In Sochi, athletes tweeted their support for Chan.
But Chan also got tons of love from those closer to home who felt that the silver medalist had nothing to apologize for.
Patrick Chan!! Silver!! Please stop saying sorry and that you're disappointed! Think of all the Cdn champs that NEVER medaled! #wearewinter— Meeshbeer (@Meeshbeer) February 14, 2014

Patrick Chan's words after seeing his score? "I'm sorry." He had a great showing at Sochi and did all of Canada proud. #WeAreWinter— Sandra Prusina (@sprusina) February 14, 2014
If you doubt Patrick Chan's citizenship, watching him say "I'm sorry" to the camera after receiving his score is confirmation #CanadaProud— Katrina Armstrong (@katrinaboards) February 14, 2014
Considering that Japan's Yuzuru Hanyu had to score a world record in the short program for the gold medal we don't think Chan has anything to apologize for. He's a champion in our hearts.
