Uncertain future for Canadian figure skater Patrick Chan

Patrick Chan says he's not sure if he'll continue competing.

The three-time world figure skating champion had to settle for the silver in Sochi.

He says he knows Canadians will be disappointed he didn't win gold.

Canadian men have won 14 world figure skating titles, but Olympic gold continues to elude them.

The 23-year-old from Toronto, who received his silver medal at a ceremony Saturday, says he can feel the pressure growing.

"Do I enjoy competing, do I enjoy those minutes leading up to stepping on the ice? Am I so fearful that I don't enjoy it anymore? Or am I enjoying the fear and do I (thrive on that)?" Chan said Saturday.

"I'll have to take time and think about that -- if I want to relive moments like I lived yesterday. Can I take that experience again? I have to really think about it."
