This weekend Team Canada won their first Olympic medal, a gold, in the Team Figure Skating Event. However, the only members of the team people are talking about today, are ice dancers Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir.

Virtue and Moir are excellent technicians and have a lot of artistic flair, but the fact that they always look like they’re gonna bang it out as soon as they get their scores gives their performances that extra little bit of pizzazz.

The crazy thing in all this, is that Virtue & Moir actually toned down their performance from what it was at the start of their ice dance season. Just before the Olympics the pair made headlines with this provocative move below:
While their Olympic performance was tweaked (view it at the CBC Olympics site), it was still steamy enough to draw attention on social media.
The best thing about ice dancing is new people seeing Virtue and Moir and joining the rest of us that have wondered for years "What do you mean, they're not together?"

Virtue and Moir are platonic in the same universe Mulder and Scully are. pic.twitter.com/h38T3412dn

I'll bet when Virtue and Moir are in a Panera Bread together, they both look at their phones, but occasionally, they reach out for the other's hand at the same time, then smile quietly to themselves.
