GANGNEUNG, Korea, Republic Of — Canadian figure skating stars Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir have won their second Olympic ice dancing title.

In what was likely their final competitive performance, Virtue and Moir captured a gold medal at the Pyeongchang Games after scoring 122.40 points in Tuesday’s free skate for a world-best combined score of 206.07.

Fans at the Gangneung Ice Arena roared during Virtue and Moir’s steamy skate to music from "Moulin Rouge" and they were all smiles as they took what will likely be the final bows of their illustrious career.
