Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, Patrick Chan, Eric Radford and Meagan Duhamel, Gabby Daleman, Kaetlyn Osmond, all on stage in a single room on the day they won the team figure skating gold: They look like skaters, but they sounded like hockey players, grateful and cerebral.

The 27-year-old Patrick Chan, who had struggled with his jumps in the team event's short programme, landed the first two quads of his free skate.

But with Canada's team gold medal assured, Virtue and Moir tied the record for most Olympic medals won by figure skaters - even after the duo chose to adjust their routine, which dominated the 2018 Canadian Skating Nationals in January.

Chan was asked if a gold in the team event feels less of an accomplishment for a three-time world champ who never made it to the top of the podium in an individual event at the Games.

"We knew that taking the ice at an Olympic Games again meant that we needed to have a different style", Virtue told the Star. "We saw the potential we had in Sochi but didn't capitalize on it". "We've really bonded during these competitions". They won gold in ice dance in 2010, plus a team event silver and an ice dance silver four years ago in Sochi. At that point, the United States was leading Italy for bronze, but it wasn't yet decided. "I don't want to rub it in everyone's face but I called that yesterday".

"We think we're the best in the world", ice dancer Scott Muir said. "I have such an incredible, strong team". "I think Tessa and I, we'll personally judge our successes on the generations that come after us".

"We felt like we were too casual". Austria, France, South Korea and Sweden collected one gold each, all securing the sixth spot.




The 17-year-old snowboarder came out on top in a convincing style, also becoming the second youngest individual victor in the games' history.

However, their joint vision for the 2018 Winter Olympics differed from their "edgy" moves from before. "I can not believe it". "Every time I see him I just give him a hug and I have something to say to him". "But I'm ecstatic. I can't believe it".

The team event is contested by 10 teams.

The women's giant slalom featuring Mikaela Shiffrin has been rescheduled for Thursday, the same day as the men's downhill at the Pyeongchang Olympics.

To make room for the Alpine program's marquee race, the men's super-G will shift from Thursday to Friday. The same happened with the men's downhill on Sunday. Sebastian Samuelsson of Sweden took silver and Benedikt Doll of Germany earned bronze. It wasn't a flawless skate, but as Radford put it, his most complex jumps, a pair of quads, "were fantastic". McMorris took third after putting up a score of 85.20 in his second run. Kramer comfortably crossed the line ahead of Canada's Ted-Jan Bloemen and Norway's Sverre Lunde Pedersen. "That is the joy of the Olympic Games".

On that occasion, Lipnitskaya failed to medal in the individual competition as Russian teammate Adelina Sotnikova won gold.

Three second-period goals helped Canada earn its first win of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Games. She received a personal-best score of 137.53.
