It's their third gold overall after winning in Vancouver in 2010 and fifth total medal after earning two silvers at the 2014 Sochi Games.

Now, they're the most successful Olympic ice dance pair of all time - with five medals.

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir react after their performance at the ice dance free dance competition final during the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics.

"That's the amusing thing about the Olympics: if you do the work right you've gained all that stuff in your personal life before you even come to the Olympics", Moir said.

"We've been through so much together, we've grown up together", the 30-year-old Moir told CNN Sport's Amanda Davies. "Would you guys just give us a little 411 on that situation?"

Ryan Donato scored two goals and Troy Terry had three assists to jumpstart the Americans' offense in their impressive hockey win over Slovakia. "This is the moment we have dreamed about", wrote Tessa, 28, on social media before thanking fans and Canada for their unwavering support.

"We all had to show up", Zapolski said.

Before they pop the champagne, the pair will do all they can to connect with their fans back home.

Krushelnitsky, who had passed rigorous vetting to compete, said: "I, more than anyone else, am interested in an investigation as soon as possible to find out the reasons for what has happened". We love storytelling, especially with Satine and Christian in the Moulin Rouge! program. "We're pretty happy with how things turned out, that's for sure".

Sunday's gala will be another chance for Canada to see them in action one last time.

They outpointed Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron, who had just set the world record moments earlier with a combined score of 205.28. But they've stayed mum about how that chemistry translates off the ice.

The Canadian pair started skating together when Virtue was seven and Moir was nine, according to the official PyeongChang website. "We can't wait to come home and celebrate with everyone in Canada!" exclaimed Tessa. "So we trusted ourselves and we needed to believe in that program so it felt so good to really execute that in the moment".

Papadakis said Tuesday's performance had made their Olympic debut special. "We had, I think, our best game today".

Regardless of whether they hang up their competitive skates or not, Tessa and Scott's legacy will never melt away.
