MISSISSAUGA, Ontario -- Imagine running a 1,500-meter race up and down hills, while leaping over barriers and carrying a sack of potatoes. MLB Jerseys China .Thats how Elvis Stojko describes the long program in mens figure skating.Patrick Chan won his seventh Skate Canada International title on Saturday, but it was with a flawed free skate that petered out over the final minutes. That performance had the 25-year-old from Toronto describing himself as the least-bad skater on the night.So Stojko pulled Chan aside to offer advice that could help put him in medal contention at the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics.Patrick, he relied on the artistry for so long until everyone caught on, but in the meantime everyone was working on the quads, Stojko said. Now, hes got one season to get this. Hes got to do it now. And I told him, `Youre going to make the mistakes. You might have to give up competition wins for it.The mistakes were many on Saturday. To keep pace with his competition, Chan debuted an ambitious program that included three quads. He started off beautifully, landing a huge quad and triple axel, but fell on his second quad attempt, and turned the third into a triple. He downgraded several jumps over the final, lung-busting minutes.On a night that saw all but Canadian Kevin Reynolds struggle, Chans was one of three gold medals for the host nation. Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won the ice dance title in their first major competition since the Sochi Olympics. Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford won the pairs title. Reynolds landed three quads in his bronze-medal performance.Stojko was famous for doing double run-throughs in practice, and suggested Chan try it. The 44-year-old would do a run-through of his 4 1-2 minute free skate, take a one-minute break, then do it again -- a taxing workout he could only do every few weeks.We call it the wall, and youve got to push it, youve got to push that limit all the time that youre always up against it, and it always feels like youre working out in molasses, Stojko said. After youve done training like that, the wall moves. And its hard.As Stojko explained in a lengthy interview Sunday, competition is much tougher on the body than practice. Nerves and anticipation push the heart rate up.What happens to any of us when we have anxiety? Youre exhausted and you havent even done anything. Times that by 10 in this environment, said Stojko, who credits his background in martial arts for his approach to sports.The stress level youre under drains the tank that much faster. So when youre competing at that high level, and trying all the quads and everything, your tank needs to be larger than at a normal practice.Chan, whos also a three-time world champion, planned to discuss the double run-through idea with coach Marina Zoueva. They also plan to explore meditation and breathing exercises.Stojko has been outspoken about the direction of mens skating, writing a scathing column for Yahoo at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics under the headline The night they killed figure skating. He was angry that American Evan Lysacek won gold with no quad.Hes thrilled the sport is embracing the big jumps again.I think its awesome, said Stojko, who is Skate Canadas ambassador. People say the sports going too gymnastics. But if you take out the jumps and you limit the guys, then it just becomes a recital. Youve got the art form, but you need that athletic side to blend them together. To have a clear-cut winner, youve got to have that technical side.Critics argue the focus on the quads is hard on the skaters bodies.Look at hockey. Look at football. Look at all these other sports where they push the body, Stojko said. People come to watch that excitement. If you take all the quads out, youre going to see a lot of perfect performances, but its going to end up being boring again.The 25-year-old Chan is embracing the big jumps -- if only by necessity.Were going to keep pushing the boundary, he said. But somethings got to give, either youll have skaters who wont last very long due to injury, or the component/presentation side starts getting affected.But its cool to see these guys pushing the boundaries; Im in awe. Its going to be interesting to sit back and see where it does top out, where it does suffer. Wholesale MLB Jerseys . -- Brandon Jennings made the most of his first game with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night. Discount Baseball Jerseys . Already owning gold from competition in Vancouver in 2010, Loch posted a combined four-run time of 3:27.526. That included a track-record third run of 51. http://www.cheapmlbjerseysusa.com/ . Kiriasis and brakeman Franziska Fritz finished two runs in one minute 55.41 seconds -- a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of Meyers and Lolo Jones, who likely bolstered her Olympic hopes by helping give USA-1 a huge push in the second heat. EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs returned to practice Monday on a limited basis, after being held out of the previous game because of a knee injury.The Vikings missed Diggs during their 16-13 loss at Detroit last week. The teams leader with 67 receptions and 747 yards has missed two of 11 games this year.With a daunting matchup against NFL-leading Dallas on Thursday, the Vikings (6-5) ought to be better off with a full week of practice for healing and rest unlike the three days between games they had before playing the Lions.Cornerback Terence Newman (neck) and punt returner Marcus Sherels (ribs) didnt suit up for that game, either, but Newman also returned to practice Monday on a limited basis. Nickel cornerback Captain Munnerlyn and free safety Harrison Smith have not practiced yet this week. Neither has Sherels, who is one of only two players in the league with two punt returns for touchdowns.Wide receiver Adam Thielen has been the primary fill-in for Sherels, who has missed three games to injury this season.He is, obviously, our best returner, our best option out there, special teams coordinator Mike Priefer said. When hes back there, I think were a little bit better team.Linebacker Eric Kendricks (hip), who has missed one game to injury this year, was listed Monday as a limited participant in practice. Linebacker Chad Greenway, whose wife was overdue with the couples fourth child, was not present.Quarterback Sam Bradford (ankle), who hasnt missed a snap since taking over the job for the second game of the season, also appeared on the injury report as a limited participant in practice.Theres no place on the roster more affected by health probblems this season than the offensive line, where center Joe Berger (concussion) and right tackle Jeremiah Sirles (hip) had to leave early after getting hurt against the Lions. Stitched Nike MLB Jerseys. Berger has yet to be cleared to practice, increasing the likelihood of Nick Easton making his first start. Sirles was listed as a limited participant and said to be all right according to coach Mike Zimmer.Eleven players have taken snaps on the offensive line so far this year, with three tackles currently on injured reserve. Mike Harris, who has started at both guard and tackle on the right side of the line in recent seasons but has been sidelined all season because of an unspecified illness, undoubtedly would have seen significant playing time if he were healthy.I dont know what is, but somebodys really taken a (expletive) on us this year, left guard Alex Boone said.Zimmer said he believes the rash of injuries that has hit his team could not have been prevented.I honestly dont think its anything to do with the strength and conditioning or any of that stuff, Zimmer said. After the season, obviously, were going to sit down and look at everything, look at that part of it. Were going to look at when guys got hurt, where they got hurt, how they got hurt, but at this point, its just football things. Weve obviously tried to put our finger on a lot of that, but were not getting guys hurt in the weight room. Most every one of them have been on the field or during the games or something like that.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
