Pick up an afternoon shopping item and leave with a picture with an international figure skating star.
That’s what a few hundred people at White Oaks Mall did Saturday (Feb. 16) when six-time national figure skating champion Patrick Chan arrived at the Wellington Street shopping centre for a two-hour meet-and-greet.

Everyone from young children to London-Fanshawe MP Irene Mathyssen came out to get a picture with the 22-year-old athlete and an autograph.
Saturday evening, Chan made his way to the London Convention Centre for the Dragon Gala to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
Chan’s next appearance in the Forest City will be at Budweiser Gardens for the ISU World Figure Skating Championships running from March 11-17.
