Canadian ice dancers Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue made history Monday night by becoming the first North American pair to ever win an Olympic gold medal in the event. Scoring a personal best 110.42, Moir and Virtue beat out Meryl Davis and Charlie White of the United States, and Russia’s Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalin, who finished second and third, respectively. In doing so, the Canadians also became the youngest ice dance gold medalists in history.
