Canadian figure skating Olympic and world champion Patrick Chan announced his retirement on Monday.

"I have fulfilled my dreams and aspirations in competitive skating, and it is now time to move on to new challenges and opportunities," Chan, who earned his first gold medal in the team event in the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, said in a Skate Canada press release Monday.

Chan, 27, dominated the Sochi Olympic cycle with world titles in 2011, 2012 and 2013, then took silver at the Sochi Olympics behindJapanese Yuzuru Hanyu.

He took one season off, then competed the last three seasons, racking up his eighth, ninth and 10th Canadian titles. He was ninth individually in PyeongChang, no longer able to match the world's best in quadruple jumps.
