Tessa virtue dating skier
We were being the team people expected us to be, instead of owning who we were. If they had been our last Olympics, there would have been no bitterness.But we found so much resilience and strength together. “Meryl [Davis] and Charlie [White, USA, who won gold] were an amazing team and they delivered. There’s a misconception that it was a dark time, but it wasn’t.” The big question, however, remains inconclusively answered.Tessa herself, however, sees it completely differently.
“We didn’t want to go into Pyeong Chang and complete the set by getting bronze,” admitted Virtue.Minutes later, with an astonishing routine, Virtue and Moir broke it themselves to claim their fifth overall Olympic medal – making them the most-decorated figure skaters in Olympic history.“We found our joy in being athletes in Pyeong Chang,” she said. Every moment revolved around just what it would take to win the Olympics.But he now says he was just trying to make me feel better and he felt equally bad.We knew we couldn’t miss because we knew Gabby [Gabriella Papadakis] and Guil [Guillaume Cizeron] were going to lay it down – and they did.” In the free dance, Papadakis and Cizeron broke the world record for overall score.
We also found a serenity on the ice and I think that was the first time and place we’d experienced that, really being in flow as an athlete. If I’m honest, we’ve spent eight years chasing that feeling.
