With just three skates to go, if this team can stay on top, it'll be Canada's first figure skating Olympic gold since Virtue and Moir made their debuts on this stage, eight years ago. Get HELLO! Canada, PEOPLE, Vanity Fair and over 100 more of the world's best magazines for one low monthly price at Texture by Next Issue. We loved the way he battled to the end.

Upset by the colour of their Sochi medal, the Canadian skaters returned home and embarked on a four-year plan.

Mike Slipchuck, the former skater who is now the high-performance director for Skate Canada, was feeling the same way. And then, after adding a quad jump to an unparalleled arsenal of other skating skills, he was all but unbeatable for three seasons, roaring to three world titles.

"We really wanted a sleek, modern, contemporary esthetic overall", Virtue told the Star's Rosie DiManno.

This time, the pair used positions that "fit a little better".

The comments follow claims that some of Oxfam's aid workers used prostitutes in Haiti following the 2010 natural disaster . Oxfam said that they were "grateful" for the actress and her devotion to the charity in the last few years.

"We didn't know what to expect", Moir said after the skate. "We were taking this seriously". And to be able to compete more times at the Olympics, I'm definitely not going to argue against it. "It's an emotional Games and we are having a blast".

"Obviously the skaters in generations before us didn't have the opportunity to win multiple medals at an Olympic Games", Moir said.

But it didn't matter, at that point Canada had clinched the gold medal.

Chan came back from retirement for this, so did Virtue and Moir.

Duhamel and Radford nailed first. Instead of losing ground, there was now even more room between them. It's more about a friendship; our working relationship is so strong. With the Kiss 'n Cry, glittery costumes and makeup, the stuffed toys fans throw on the ice, it can also appear a little flaky.

An American reporter asked: can a team medal make up for missing individual gold?

"I told him to emotionally detach!"

They say they can't operate the gondola lift that would carry teams and officials up the mountain. The next year, he was off to Winnipeg.

"I think I've been in the conversation for awhile", he said. This displays in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver International Airports. The 28-year-old extended the lead to 5-0 early in the second period, barreling in from the left wing, deking goaltender Shin So-Jung and lifting the puck over the glove side. "It's like one in a billion odds", he said.

"We thought Patrick could come out and win off the bat which would put the whole thing at ease for us, and he did", said Skate Canada's high performance director Mike Slipchuk, the man responsible for deciding Team Canada's makeup for the long and short programs.
