Skaters from Canada took home gold in figure skating’s team event on Sunday night, while Team USA secured bronze for the second straight Olympics. Olympic Athletes from Russia took home the silver medal.
It’s significant for the Canadians for a few reasons, most notably, their team captains and Opening Ceremony flag bearers, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.
With the gold, Virtue and Moir tied the record for the most decorated Olympic figure skaters with four. They won gold in ice dance in 2010, plus a team event silver and an ice dance silver four years ago in Sochi. Gillis Grafstrom and Yevgeny Plushenko also have four medals. Virtue and Moir could stand at five medals apiece by the end of the PyeongChang Winter Games.
