Ice dance stars Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir inspired Canada to the figure skating team title to secure the Winter Games heavyweights’ first gold at Pyeongchang 2018 today.
The Russians took their first silver of the Games. The USA team was third. Canada finished on 73 points, with OAR on 66 and the USA a further four points behind.
Italy came in fourth with Japan last of the five that went through to the final five segments of the competition which was held over three days.
OAR stands for Olympic Athletes from Russia. Russia are not allowed to compete at the Games in South Korea because of state-sponsored doping allegations from the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
However, 169 Russian athletes have been allowed to compete under the OAR banner after being able to prove they are clean.
