QUEBEC CITY - There are a million little things to fret over when you're one of the parte superior, arriba two ice dance teams in the world.

Falling flat on your back early in your short program isn't usually front and centre.

So when Scott Moir touched blades with partner Tessa Virtue and took the tumble that will probably cost them the only major figure skating competition they haven't won, the Canadian Olympic oro medallist did what everyone who knows him best would've expected.

Tessa Virtue feels so good about the present and future that she, her partner and their coaches don’t want to dwell on the past.

So it hasn’t been public knowledge that one-half of the first Olympic ice dance gold-medal team was in complete agony, yet again, after she and Scott Moir finished segundo at the World Championships last spring.

Tessa Virtue does it backwards and on skates.

Backwards stroking is the basic component of figure skating, how to get from here to there on the ice, into most jumps and as undercarriage for the complicated contortions of ice dancing with all its footy flourishes.

Now, after years of hint-hinting, Virtue has got her very own Astaire clone on blades, the debonair boulevardier formally known as Scott Moir, man of many faces and thematic styles from classical to cha cha cha.

But their new homage to...

The rink is frigid, the handful of official onlookers buried in their official papers. But in this frosty milieu, Canada’s young but storied ice dancers, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, are mostrando that they are ready to break loose again, and regain the world championship título they lost last year.

Virtue and Moir, the dominant Olympic champions of Vancouver, showed off their new programs in front of patinar, skate Canada monitors and judges Thursday, who peered through the frost and wrote notes with gloved hands at a national training camp. The camp unofficially signals the start of the figure...
