That Scandalous, Super Steamy Ice-Dancing Lift Won Gold At The Olympics

Fans at the Gangneung Ice Arena roared during their steamy skate to music from "Moulin Rouge" and they were all smiles as they took what will likely be the final bows of their illustrious career. "We are so emotional", he said.

Hey, we all remember the first boy we ever had a crush on. Either way, this idea of them having an adorable mini-romance when they were children just makes their story that much better!

"It was a strong last group, there was a lot of pressure, but I'm so happy with how we performed".

Afterward, they, their French counterparts and their mutual coaches huddled in a circle on the ice, draped in their respective flags, sharing the moment they had worked together to achieve.

"That's the lovely thing about figure skating".

Now, we don't want to break any hearts here, but the pair have denied they are an item.

"We're going to celebrate with some champagne", smiled Virtue.

"To have four skates on Olympic ice that we can be extremely proud of and to come away with two Olympic medals for Team USA and ourselves and everyone that has supported us, it's nearly indescribable".

In bronze, nearly 13 points behind, came American brother and sister act Maia and Alex Shibutani.

Kaitlyn Weaver of Toronto and Andrew Poje of Waterloo, Ont., were seventh, one spot ahead of Piper Gilles of Toronto and Paul Poirier of Unionville, Ont. The pair also earned two silvers at the 2014 Games in Sochi and won gold in their Olympic debut on home turf in Vancouver four years earlier. Cassie Sharpe, also of Canada, took gold, while France's Marie Martinod, who came out of retirement at Burke's behest, won silver.

They're the most decorated figure skaters - EVER.

Krushelnitsky, who had passed rigorous vetting to compete, said: "I, more than anyone else, am interested in an investigation as soon as possible to find out the reasons for what has happened". "That performance was really special and truly memorable".

Fast forward to 2018, while winning was certainly the goal, Monday's skate was about something more, said Virtue.

"We aren't involved in the picking of the judges, we're not concerned with what country sits on the panel", Moir told a news conference.

Gold was far from a sure thing heading into Tuesday's free dance. "But that's the scoring system".

But it wasn't always strictly business for the pair, who, in their 2011 book, Tessa and Scott: Our Journey from Childhood Dream to Gold, confirm they did once "date", if you can call it that, when Virtue was eight and Moir, 10. They upset the Canadians at the Grand Prix Final in December, then set the world record with their elegant, mesmerizing performance at last month's European championships. The French skate a simpler style favouring elegance and long lines. Dubreuil sported a clean cut bob, a chic black coat, and an expression as sharp as ice as she tracked Virtue and Moir's every move. "They're a once in a generation talent".

2018 U.S. Champions Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue finished in fourth place after a small stumble at the end of their program cost them points on their choreographic twizzle sequence, and resulted in a mandatory one-point deduction because Donohue put his hands on the ice.

Another posted: "Can this never end".

Two years ago, they chose to forgo professional dollars and return to competitive skating, with their sightlines firmly set on winning in Pyeongchang.

It was a big night for figure skaters with ties to the Kitchener-Waterloo Skating Club. The Canadian pioneer of freestyle skiing advocated for the sport's inclusion in both the X Games and the Olympics before her death in 2012 during a training accident in the halfpipe.
