(AP) Patrick Chan feels good about arriving early at the Sochi Olympics, especially after solving his bus route issues to the figure skating arena.

The men's gold-medal favorite was late for his first practice at the Iceberg Skating Palace on Saturday, blaming jet lag and his own bad planning.

But as Chan was one of few athletes in town, he was alone in the rink.

The three-time world champion says "having the ice to myself was a huge advantage."

Chan says "in my whole career I haven't had a practice on my own. It comes down to the Olympics."

Chan says he looks forward to skating alongside Evgeni Plushenko, the 2006 Olympic champion.
