Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir are Canada’s sweethearts.
On top of their charm and audience captivating routines, they are showing the world that they are here to dominate.
The figure skating pair skated to “Sympathy for the Devil,” “Hotel California,” and “Oye Como Va,” in last night’s short dance segment, scoring 83.67 points, breaking their previous world record of 82.68 which they set in October.

Virtue and Moir are no strangers to the podium
In 2010, they captured gold in the Vancouver Olympics, then they earned silver in the Sochi games. Now, in Pyeongchang, their eyes are set on reclaiming the gold. This will be their final Olympic Games, as they have decided to retire.
The free dance is scheduled for Tuesday, where other Canadians will be competing as well. Andrew Poje and Kaitlyn Weaver sit in eighth place, and Piper Gilles and Paul Poirer sit in ninth.
The pair will skate for gold, likely for the last time at an Olympic Games tonight. Figure skating is set to beging at 5 pm PT on Monday.

There was more emotion in Tessa and Scott's dance than I've had in my entire life.
