Canada brings home first gold in figure skating team event in PyeongChang

Dressed in dazzling black and gold, Virtue and Moir scored 80.51 points for their short dance to the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy For The Devil", "Hotel California" by the Eagles and Santana's "Oye Como Va".

Kaetlyn Osmond, of Marystown, N.L., scored 71.38 to finish third in the women's short program, and her eight points were enough to keep Canada in the team lead with 35 points overall.

Moir has reportedly called the move "suggestive".

This week in Pyeongchang, South Korea, Moir shared the pair's reasons for changing the program with the Toronto Star, citing artistic vision.

Hoping to discern what she's thinking, analysts pored over video of her eyes, and remarked on the tilt of her chin. It's too early to tell (although skeptics are already shaking their heads at all of the above).

An adjustment has been made to the routine in an attempt to make it more family-friendly - a change the pair were expecting heading to Pyeongchang.

The three-time Winter Olympic medalists chose to adjust their routine, which had dominated the 2018 Canadian Skating Nationals in January.

"I think edgy would probably summarise most of the program quite well and that's what we were going for", Virtue said after she and Moir won their eighth national title. The legendary ice dancing pair received ideal scores for this performance.

"We didn't know what to expect", said Moir about his third Olympics adventure. Virtue herself jokingly referred to the lift as "porno" in a previous interview.

The pair won ice-dance gold at the 2010 Games before claiming silver in 2014. In several interviews, they've said that they've come back to the competitive circuit with one goal in mind: to win gold in the Olympics.

It's about both the chance at an Olympic gold medal, and about writing the final chapter of their distinguished careers together.
