Chan first in team free skate, bolsters Canada's lead

Chan first in team free skate, bolsters Canada's lead

Canadian figure skaters Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir have secured a strong points lead in the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics short dance event, despite cutting what Moir once described as a straight-up "porno" manoeuvre from their provocative routine. With a maximum possible team score of 10 and a minimum of six in the ice dance, Canada is guaranteed to finish first as the team now in second, Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation, have 58 points. He placed first with a score of 179.75 in the men's free program, keeping the veteran Canadian team in first place and setting the stage for Daleman.

"I achieved a big thing, which was to land the two big quads in one programme".

Daleman's 137.14-point performance added eight points to Canada's cumulative score, bringing it up to 63. "I'm sorry, that's how I'm going to see it, that's how I'm going to enjoy it, and that's for me to decide".

Canada now sits first in the team event after Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford put in a strong performance in the pairs short program on Friday in Pyeongchang.

Zagitova, skating at her first Olympics, turned in a sizzling performance to composer Leon Minkus's "Don Quixote". "That was great for the start of the season, but for the overall vision of the program, we hope that this new position fits a little better".

It's about both the chance at an Olympic gold medal, and about writing the final chapter of their distinguished careers together. I think what we felt is even more special.

Clearly overjoyed, the 24-year-old - who wept after being left off the Olympic team for Sochi in 2014 - pumped her fists and grinned as she skated off the ice.

"Maybe it's the Japanese genetics - but lucky for me I'm American, so I'll be the first USA lady".
