Canada wins Olympic figure skating gold, US grabs bronze

Then two-time world pairs champs Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford won their free skate with Adele's "Hometown Glory", scoring 148.51 and adding 10 to Canada's cumulative score to bring it up to 45 by the end of the day. The United States sits second with 14, followed by Japan with 13.

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir performed an eyebrow-raising lift during their original routine, during which Scott's face got suspiciously close to Tessa's nether region.

With the pressure taken off them, the duo blew away competition, finishing first with 118.10 points, six points ahead of Americans Maia and Alex Shibutani, who helped their country win bronze. "I'm going to hold this medal tight to me and it's going to be as good as the individual event".

Chan, the three-time world champion from Toronto, fell on both his quadruple toe loop and triple Axel to score 81.66. "I did the best I could and left no rock unturned".

The team won the gold for ice dancing at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and silver at the 2010 Sochi games. And now I'm standing here after all of that. Whether the choice to change the lift is purely artistic or is meant to help tone down the "suggestive" program, it's safe to say that Moir and Virtue aren't taking any chances in letting gold get past them. "Team Canada has such an incredible group of fearless, courageous, fun, inspiring athletes - and we'll be forever bonded thanks to the unique experiences we have the chance to share together".

The 27-year-old, who had struggled with his jumps in the team event's short program, landed the first two quads of his free skate, earning him a season's best score of 179.75 points. Carolina Kostner finished in second in the ladies short program with 75.1 points.
