I felt the judges couldn’t justify not giving them gold... They made no mistakes in both programs.
The French did, and it wasn’t like they did more technically challenging programs.

Regardless, Tessa and Moir bring a story to the ice that is emotional... Not just a flawless routine.
They elevated the sport in 2010 with their formula, and are still the best at it.
The American siblings are going to have a hard time closing that handicap if they remain top
contenders in the future.

Actually it’s “complicated”
That’s totally how I saw it too. She’s made comments about how she’d be a bad
girlfriend because she wants to focus on being an Olympian, meanwhile he says stuff
like “I just want to do it for her.”
puts on tinfoil hat
I think they’re probably more than friends but not a couple because she thought it’d be
better to not be one and instead focus on their craft. She’s always come off as the
pragmatic one and he’s the hopeless romantic.
I can’t believe I’m here talking about shipping figure skaters, this is my life now.

Eh, there's a chance that that would destroy their passion on the ice. The thrill of
performing with a member of the opposite sex, in any art form, can produce some
chemistry that sex might hinder.

I should point out that they MAY have have been screwed out of the gold in Sochi. A Russian
involved in their skate program came forward and alleged that Russia and the US had a vote swap
deal, where each judge from one country would rate the other countries team higher than they
deserved, thereby screwing over the Canadians.
The US skate program denied it of course, but I'm holding out hope that one day it'll be proven,
the US and Russia stripped of their medals and they'll get their gold for Sochi as well.

My wife and I were in awe of that montage -- all those years of skating together put to such
beautiful music by Jim Cuddy. Probably my favorite one of those CBC has done in ages.

I really haven't watched a lot of the Olympics so far and really only started watching Ice Dance
after watching these two perform this routine on YouTube.
I made a point to watch all competitors tonight and loved the different styles and wanted to show
support to two clearly talented performers. I was so anxious that they might not clinch it but am
so excited for them that they took it.
An amazing night and I'm happy I got to watch some of the Olympics!

Was it a world record? For a combined score of both short and free programs? I must have missed
that in all my excitement.

I honestly don't remember even hearing about it before 2010. I far prefer it to figure skating,

Check out Shae Lynn Bourne and Victor Kraatz, specifically their Riverdance routine. They're
no Virtue and Moir, but they were amazing for their time. And also got screwed out of a gold
medal.
Edit: here's their Nagano performance. https://youtu.be/dCqwTRxofEc

After the awesome (even if they were a little surly) French team skated I thought well Scott & Tessa
will still go out in style -- a gold and a silver is nothing to sneeze at. And then I saw them skate. When
they twizzled (sp?) and did that perfectly timed "jazz hands" (no idea what the technical term is) to
the opening "ROXANNE!" I swear I got goosebumps. As they went on I stopped watching the technical
score and was totally absorbed by their performance. By the time it was over I thought, maybe,
maybe?, they just maybe might have a chance. And then when they announced their score I swear to
Christ I jumped off the couch and screamed like a girl. No kidding, one of the most thrilling sport
moments of my life. And that's coming from a life-long Habs fan who watched them win a dozen
Stanley Cups in their prime. Congrats to a couple of very classy and very professional and very
deserving world champions.

I could feel my heart pumping hard during their performance. The French killed it, and it did not seem
likely that Virture/Moir could pull it off.
Seeing them end, without even knowing if they came first or second, and watching them just so
ecstatic ending their career that way was mesmerizing.

2/20/2018 Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir Win Gold! : canada

I want to remind you youngin’s of Sale and Pelletier. They were pairs dancers who had the best skate
of their lives and lost the medal to the Russians in what turned out to be a huge scandal. They ended
up being given the gold because the scores were rigged
The hype around them was the same as Virtue and Moir and it was magical
And then they were a couple and Canada exploded
And then they divorced and love died.
I don’t know what I really mean by this but... we can ship them, but love can be KILLED if they broke
up.

Did anyone else catch that little moment after their skate? With all the celebrations going on? The
French team was going back on the ice to get their recognition and Scott was pumping his arm in
triumph, and then Tessa stopped him because it was the moment for the French team to get their due.
Very respectful of her.
