Canada takes home its first figure skating gold medal at these Games; the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation take silver and Team USA earns bronze.

The Canadian pairing of Scott Moir and his partner Tessa Virtue are looking for their second Olympic gold medal in ice dancing made a decision to modify their risqué lift during their routine.

Canada's team captains, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, tied the all-time record for most Olympic medals at four.

During their ice dance routine during the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, they perform the same routine but it appears that it has been slightly modified.

Canada has clinched the gold medal in the team figure skating competition.

Mikaël Kingsbury earned the title of Olympic moguls champion at PyeongChang 2018, scooping up a gold medal early Monday morning. The first place finish is a redemption story for Team Canada after a heart breaking silver medal finish in the 2014 games.

Medvedeva nailed every element in a program that broke her own mark set a year ago in another team event.

The United States team of Maia and Alex Shibutani posted a score of 112.01 while the Italian team of Anna Cappelini and Luca Lanotte scored 107.00 for their performance. "We believed in ourselves and talked about it as a team".

"The medal is what you make of it", Chan said, when asked whether a team gold medal would in some way be lesser than an individual gold.

Rippon executed a clean free skate to finish third in the five-man field.

Osmond earned eight points in her first skate of these Winter Games, bringing Canada's total up to 35 points for the competition and solidifying its qualification to the second round of the team event. "They carried me", he said after the competition on Monday.

But recently, they made headlines at the 2018 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships with one move that made audiences clap and gasp at the same time! They wanted their best athletes to rest for the individual events. I know that's not a Patrick Chan skate, but what I did see was him battle and it was a veteran move. "We recognize that. But what we do realize - and I think I learned this from Evgeni Plushenko actually - is a lot of things have to go right". She jumped into the arms of her coach when Miho Takagi of Japan finished 0.20 seconds behind in the last pairing to prevent another Dutch sweep of the medals.

"I'm focusing on my own programs", she said, "but to have the team atmosphere in the kiss-and-cry, and the podium, it's so incredible".

"We weren't very happy with our approach in Sochi and we wanted to change that", Moir said.
