Grab your warmest, furriest sweater because Patrick Chan is about to give you a serious case of the chills. A figure skater who snagged two silver medals at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Patrick recently earned a spot on Canada's 2018 Olympic team after executing an incredibly moving free skate at the Canadian Nationals. His performance was set to Jeff Buckley's cover of "Hallelujah." The song already tends to make me shed a few tears on its own, but watching Patrick elegantly glide across the ice with the bare soundtrack playing in the background was enough to make me a blubbering mess.
Though the Canadian figure skater didn't perfectly land every single jump, the judges were apparently moved enough by his routine to grant him a spot on the team for the Pyeongchang Games.
Apparently the judges weren't the only ones in love with Patrick's elegant performance, as dozens of Twitter users couldn't resist voicing their thoughts on it as soon as it aired. We can't wait to see him perform to this tune in Pyeongchang.

In the quiet of Jeff Buckley's "Hallelujah," you can hear the strength of Patrick Chan's blades against the ice.

That is a beautiful, beautiful program. Patrick Chan, skating to Hallelujah? As lovely as we could've imagined. That song is made for a skater like him.
