Did you see the ice dancing last night? Wow. That’s all I can say. The Canadian couple were brilliant. Okay, I’m Canadian and probably a bit biased, but if you know anything about dance, you have to admit the Canadians had the best frame and connection.
Earlier in the evening, I watched an interview with the couple. They’d chosen tango for their short program (which I unfortunately missed). In the video, they talk about the road they took to get to the Olympics. The video finished with a tango. A real Argentine tango. On the floor, not on ice. Immaculate footwork. Intense connection. Perfect posture. Shit, those two know how to dance tango. Like really dance. Not some fake I think I’m good and slap icing on it. OMG, I’d love to see them dance in my community.
That perfect posture, intense connection and immaculate footwork translated into a stunning ice performance. No wonder Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won the gold.
And oh boy, do they deserve it.
