Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir have become the first Canadian pair to win gold in ice dance, the first North American pair to win and the youngest pair to win. They went into the free dance in first place and the performance was, in a word, amazing. They were light as air on their lifts, their landings.
I of course was biting my knuckles the whole time because their training partners, Charlie White and Meryl Davis of the US had finished an amazing skate earlier. And even after their gorgeous free skate everyone had to wait for two more pairs to skate before the results became official. But man oh man, hearing that anthem, seeing our flag and the entire 11,000 strong crowd singing was absolutely exhilirating.
