Canadian Figure Skaters Drop Horniest Part Of Routine To Secure #1 Spot

THE CANADIAN PRESS

THE CANADIAN PRESS

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.

Canadian figure skaters Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir have modified a risque element from their routine so their free program at the Olympics will be more family-friendly. In addition to their 3 Olympic medals, they have won four World Championships (three senior and one junior), three Four Continents Championships, eight Canadian Championships (seven senior and one junior), and six Skate Canada International titles. "I'm going to hold this medal tight to me and it's going to be as good as the individual event".

Skating to Jeff Buckley's haunting "Hallelujah", the 27-year-old from Toronto opened with two huge quadruple toe loops, his two mistakes coming on his triple Axels - he popped one and fell on the other.

"I'm just happy I did the best I could and I left nothing, no rock unturned", said Chan, who admitted his nerves were jangling and he "just had a conversation with myself" to get back on track.

It's about both the chance at an Olympic gold medal, and about writing the final chapter of their distinguished careers together. "To nail it the way I did - and even out of the corner of my eye, I could see my team mates standing in excitement".

"The Olympics represent the highest level of achievement for athletes, and we couldn't be prouder of our B.C. competitors", said Tourism Minister Lisa Beare in a news release. He placed first with a score of 179.75 in the men's free program, keeping the veteran Canadian team in first place and setting the stage for Daleman.

The bottom five countries were eliminated after the short programs.
