Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir were the last couple to leave the ice after their warmup early Tuesday, the Canadian ice dancers soaking in every second before their final Olympic performance.After training partners Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron broke the world record with a flawless free skate, Virtue and Moir took the ice one last time with a dazzling, dramatic interpretation of "Moulin Rouge".It was the second gold medal of the Pyeongchang Games for Virtue and Moir, who were instrumental in helping Canada win the team event . It was also their third gold overall after winning their home Olympics in Vancouver in 2010, and their fifth total medal after two silvers at the 2014 Sochi Games.Virtue and Moir have been the standard bearers for the better part of a decade, the longest-tenured ice dance team in Canadian history.The unflappable Virtue and Moir answered the challenge with 4 minutes to last a lifetime, a short dance certain to go down in Olympic history.
