Winter Olympics 2018: Canadian figure skaters alter 'suggestive' routine

And it was certainly a gold worth watching.

The lift sees Virtue come out of an up-thrust with her legs hooked around Moir's shoulders while clasping her hands behind the back of his head. He placed first with a score of 179.75 in the men's free program, keeping the veteran Canadian team in first place and setting the stage for Daleman. "It was weird. But I think we'll be more ready, ready to compete as much as necessary".

Truth is, he had help. "We're such a skating country, how great is it that we get to bring home the gold medal for everyone".

"They were on a mission this year", said Slipchuk.

"In the team you're not just responsible for yourself, but for the whole team, the whole result".

In defeating Russia's Mikhail Kolyada, Chan widened the Canadians' lead to seven points.

Australia, on the other hand, fired on all cylinders to chase down the target of 138 with almost six overs to spare. Australia , meanwhile, the Big Bash all-stars, suddenly look the best T20 side in world cricket.

Virtue and Moir first picked up Olympic gold in 2010 at the Vancouver Games.

Anderson was one of the few riders in the final to navigate the tricky series of rails and jumps safely as the wind wreaked havoc on the field. "I think Tessa and I, we'll personally judge our successes on the generations that come after us". I really am glad with what we've done. "Most of us are 30 and we are very proud of that", Italy's Carolina Kostner said.

Virtue and Moir's PyeongChang team gold brings their Olympic medal count up to four, tying with Sweden's Gillis Grafstrom, who skated in the 1920s and '30s, and Yevgeny Plushenko from Russian Federation. "We talked about that yesterday", Moir said. "In a big way", Moir says, "we wanna do this for Chiddy".

There was no indication from Chan that it felt like a burden on Monday. Those first two quads were awesome.

Most importantly, he bumped Olympic Athlete from Russia Mikhail Kolyada into second spot. "I don't want to rub it in anyone's face but I called that yesterday!"

American Bradie Tennell set a season best; her score of 68.94 put her in fifth place, a mere 0.01 points behind Japan's Satoko Miyahara.

The Cavs also posted the birthday message to their official Twitter account, which has approximately 3.1 million followers. Teams are not just going to allow us to continue to score and continue to do things at a high level.

"The one common denominator now is the triple Axel, and it's been the challenge for me my entire life", he said. Radford was in his room watching Chan skate-he and Duhamel skated later that same day, so they were preparing-and he texted her: "I'm really nervous".

The second ever gold, silver and bronze medals have been awarded in team figure skating events at the Winter Olympics. Here in South Korea, the Canadian team is synched up.

"At the end of the day a medal is a medal. We can now embrace each other and know that we collectively did something incredible".

For those who know her story, the accomplishment of winning a gold medal is something she probably never expected. And this Canadian team is full value for it. Every time ice dancer Scott Moir saw Chan in the hallway, he hugged him and told him how good he was.

The team event is contested by 10 teams.
