Canadian ice dancers Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir skated their way to gold with an historic performance at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. They are the second pair to win two ice dance titles, joining Russia’s Pasha Grishuk and Evgeniy Platov, who earned back-to-back gold medals in 1994 and 1998. Virtue and Moir tied a figure skating ice dance world-record, total score of 206.07, with three Olympic golds, including last week’s Canada win in the team event.
