Winter Olympics: Canadian's virtue-oso display is golden

Winter Olympics: Canadian's virtue-oso display is golden

Now renowned coaches based in Montreal, Dubreuil and Lauzon have spent the past two years tutoring Canadian stars Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir and French rivals Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron, the two duos who swept the top two steps of the podium at the Pyeongchang Games.

For Virtue and Moir, this was a record fifth medal to go with their Vancouver gold and the silvers they won in the team and ice dance at Sochi, and gold in last week's team event in Pyeongchang. "It was a special moment to come out last", she said.

The gala is a curtain-closing tradition in figure skating.

"When I think about Gord and I think about the Hip and what they've been able to do, it's kind of the soundtrack to being Canadian nearly", Moir said.

"I don't care what medal they win", one person wrote on twitter, "They're in love".

However, US President Donald Trump's refusal to recertify the deal has injected uncertainty into those sales. Aseman Airlines spokesman Mohammad Taghi Tabatabai told state TV that all on board Flight EP3704 were killed.

The victory marked the Canadian figure skaters, who won gold at Vancouver 2010, as the second pair to win two Olympic golds in this event, after Russians Pasha Grishuk and Evgeniy Platov's achievement in 1994 and 1998.

Canada's Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir delivered another dominant performance in Tuesday's free dance competition, earning them their second gold medal of the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang. "The competition is about them, not us". "We did four performances on Olympic ice we can be so proud of, and we got two Olympic medals (including the team)".

Meanwhile, the race for the gold medal came down to two teams a cut above the rest.

Vitue and Moir have been the standard bearers for the better part of a decade, the longest-tenured ice dance team in Canadian history. They carried the Maple Leaf flag into the opening ceremony, and their rock-inspired Latin short dance Monday broke their own world record.

They were almost unstoppable last season, winning the world championship as if they had never been away, but were upset by Papadakis and Cizeron at the Grand Prix Final in December.

Court orders restoration of DACA program
The legal battle over DACA complicates a debate now underway in Congress on whether to change the nation's immigration laws. The judge said the Trump administration can still rescind the program in the future if it does it the right way.

"I think people like to imagine that their relationship is more than it is, and that they're a couple off the ice as well", said Gardner.

The French couple, whose wardrobe malfunction in the short dance made them a trending topic worldwide, drew the penultimate starting number for Tuesday's free dance.

Their score of 123.35 points was exactly what they needed to make a case for gold. Although he did compete and attain some titles in the junior circuit, the older Moir did not find the golden success that his younger brother has discovered alongside Virtue.

Not to mention their exemplary careers.

US champs Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue were third, two-hundredths of a point ahead of their compatriots, Maia and Alex Shibutani.

Additionally, Svindal and Jansrud could join Aamodt as the only Norwegian alpine skiers with multiple Olympic gold medals. That followed Sunday's postponement of the men's downhill .

The Shibutanis, who helped the US win team bronze, overcame a shaky start to their performance with a strong second half, including a breathtaking rotational lift to finish.
