Desbiens, Canada shut out Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation

The Vancouver's Olympic Cauldron is located in Jack Poole Plaza

Canada's ice dance powerhouses Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir helped secure Canada's first gold medal at PyeongChang, taking the top spot in both the short and free dance, and winning the team event.

The only thing missing from Canadian figure skater Patrick Chan's resume is an Olympic gold medal.

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.

They might have deemed their moves too sexy for the Olympics, but the Canadian duo still grabbed gold after amending their sultry routine.

Yay for US figure skating medals!

The U.S. defended its bronze medal it won in the team event in Sochi. Canada won silver in 2009 and 2013, and bronze in 2012.

Medvedeva nailed every element in a program that broke her own mark set past year in another team event.




In doing so, Chan has become the only Canadian men's figure skater to win a gold medal, something he waited his whole career for. In his short program in this team event, Chan fell twice, but still managed to finish third overall. "I think Tessa and I, we'll personally judge our successes on the generations that come after us".

"And at that moment, I wanted to stop the music and get off, but I still had my whole program ahead of me".

The Americans stood in third place following the event's second day of competition Sunday and couldn't move up the standings on the final day. She finished in second place behind Russian Alina Zagitova. As of Monday at 3:30 p.m., Germany leads the overall competition with three gold medals and one bronze, followed by the Netherlands with two gold, two silver and one bronze and the United States with two gold, one silver and one bronze. "I mean, I went to Junior Worlds with little Patrick Chan, before he was a three-time world champion and whatever else is in his trophy room".

The Canadian side - arguably the strongest of the competition after several other countries fielded weakened teams in preparation for the individual events - already had the title sewn up thanks to Daleman's third place in the women's singles this morning.

For them, it's a chance to work out the kinks in a competitive environment, fine-tuning their own programs for what really matters in the coming days. What I saw was a step in the right direction.

"We wanted to win the team event in 2018 and we believed in ourselves and we talked about it as a team", Moir said.

"I'm focusing on my own programs", she said, "but to have the team atmosphere in the kiss-and-cry, and the podium, it's so incredible".
