The 27-year-old Chan steps away from professional competition as the most decorated figure skater in Canadian history.

Chan's consistency and longevity has been incredible over the course of his career, as he won his 10th national title in January to break a record held since 1939.

The announcement was widely expected as Chan had previously hinted he would call time on his career after the Games.
