Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir win freedance Olympic Gold for Canada 2.22.10
VANCOUVER — Theirs has long been an almost uncanny alchemy — great parts platonic love and respect — and on Monday the mix was potent enough to transform a beautiful 14-year partnership and endless personal sacrifices into an Olympic gold medal.
It wasn’t so much magic on a grand scale, because implying sleight of hand or smoke and mirrors would not do justice to the intricate, romantic free dance program that sent Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir flying to the top of the podium at Pacific Coliseum. Quite simply, their heartfelt performance and technical mastery over ice dancing’s ever more difficult elements — the lifts and spins and twizzles — set the bar too high even for their young friends and training mates, Americans Meryl Davis and Charlie White, who settled into silver, a rather distant six points behind.
“What a night, what a week for us,” said Moir. “We knew it was in us, but to get out there on the Olympic ice and perform, and execute like that; it’s a feeling that I’ve never had.”
“It was just about skating together and skating from our hearts and enjoying the moment for us and skating for the two of us,” said Virtue. “We’re so proud to be Canadian and do it for the nation. This is absolutely Canada’s medal.”
