A Kiss is Just a KissTessa Virtue and Scott Moir were so closely locked in an ice dance embrace at a practice earlier this season, their lips accidentally touched. It was an accident.”“I can't believe that was the first time in 13 years,” Virtue giggled.The newly minted Olympic and world champions laugh off the inadvertent kiss — the first in their 13 years together — as an occupational hazard.“It was so funny, we went to do the move the next time and she couldn't look at me,” Moir said laughing. Much has been made of their relationship since the two captured the country's imagination at the Vancouver Games, becoming Canada's first Olympic ice dance gold medalists.The whirlwind romance ended badly with a phone call from Moir.“He said, 'I don't want to go out with you any more,' ” Virtue said, holding a hand to her ear like a phone.

They've formed a bond through their longevity that shows in their skating, so closely in synch that it's not easy to discern, it seems, where one graceful sweep of the hand ends, and the other begins.
“And for the longest time before that they didn’t even know what was wrong with her.” Yes, it’s been quite the ride for Canada’s golden duo, the youngest ice dance gold medallists in history, and the first North Americans to win the event in its 30-year Olympic history.
It makes their victory, following a near-flawless skate on Monday, even more remarkable.
