Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir were the last couple to leave the ice after their warmup early Tuesday, the Canadian ice dancers soaking in every second before their final Olympic performance. They sure made it a memorable one. After training partners Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron broke the world record with a flawless free skate, Virtue and Moir took the ice one last time with a dazzling, dramatic interpretation of "Moulin Rouge." Every movement was synchronized, every element raw and emotional, the only question left inside Gangneung Ice Arena was whether it would be enough. The score: a personal-best 122.40 points, and a record 206.07 total, pushing them past their French rivals' score of 205.28 and making them the most decorated figure skaters in Olympic history. http://abcnews.go.com/Sports/wireStory/virtue-moir-win-ice-dance-3rd-career-olympic-53209494

Winter Olympics: Virtue and Moir to rival Torvill and Dean as ice dancing's greatest
And they saved the best till last, writes James Toney in PyeongChang.
Figure skating’s Olympic ice dance competition had it all – show tunes set to a swing break, sequins, glitter, wardrobe malfunctions, pearly white smiles as frozen as the ice on which they skate and tears. Lots of tears.
For elegance and élan, this is where it’s at and yet there are few more tawdry sports at the Games, wipe away the make-up and all is never as it seems.
