Olympics: Ice Dancing
How amazing was the ice dancing competition yesterday night? Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won the gold medal! I’m kind of biased being Canadian, but I think overall it was quite a show. A lot of them performed quite well.
One of the things I like about ice dancing is that it is a competition, but with a fun twist… and drama.
Virtue and Moir became the first Canadians to win the Olympic gold medal in ice dance. Actually, not only was it a first for Canadians but also for anybody in North America.
Other first for Virtue and Mori: they are the first ice dancing pair to win in their first Olympics and they are the youngest pair to win in the Olympics ice dancing competition.
Americans Meryl Davis and Charlie White came in second and the Russians Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalincame in third. It was only the third time since ice dance became an Olympic sport in 1976 that either the Russians or Soviets did not win the gold medal in the ice dancing competition.
P.S. Don’t forget to leave me a comment below on your thoughts! As always, I’d love to hear from you.
