Figure-skating duo didn't need sexy move to win gold

Canada wins Olympic figure skating gold, US grabs bronze

Their score, about two points off their season's best, had Moir's brows furrowed in a frown in the kiss and cry, but the 30-year-old from Ilderton, Ont., said that's the bonus of giving their programs a test run in the team event before they go for individual gold next week.

Skating in his third and final Olympics, Chan was inconsistent on his other jumps, rushing on his takeoffs and doubling a triple Axel before falling on the next one.

"I hadn't been that nervous in awhile", Chan said through a grin.

"I achieved a big thing, which was to land the two big quads in one programme".

Then two-time world pairs champs Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford won their free skate with Adele's "Hometown Glory", scoring 148.51 and adding 10 to Canada's cumulative score to bring it up to 45 by the end of the day.




Canada now has three wins in six events in Pyeongchang, South Korea, finishing in the top three in each competition.

In any case, the pair will go into the final short dance event next Monday on 10 team points, ahead of the United States of America on 9 and the Olympic athletes of Russian Federation on 8.

"Looking back to last summer when I was struggling, and after Skate Canada (in October, where he missed the podium for the first time in eight years), of getting the national title and then making the team, and then doing the team event seemed so daunting, and so far away". "And that was great for the start of the season, but for the overall vision of the program, we hope that this new position fits a little better".

While neither Moir or Virtue have said they're removing the lift to be less provocative, many feel it's a smart move given the conservative nature of the Olympics judging panel. "I'm sorry, that's how I'm going to see it, that's how I'm going to enjoy it, and that's for me to decide". The U.S. are now third overall.
