Vancouver's Olympic Cauldron lit to honour Canadian athletes in PyeongChang

12 February 2018

When Virtue flipped backward onto Moir's shoulders, straddling him briefly, her partner's face got a little too close to her crotch area.

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.

Moir has reportedly called the move "suggestive".

Moir insists that the tweak to the routine is for aesthetic, not sexiness, reasons.

She served as director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison in the White House, making almost $180,000 annually. This is to make sure that she doesn't get an unfair advantage over her competition.

"What it came down to, actually, was that when we slowed it down and looked on the video, it wasn't aesthetically that lovely of a position, so we wanted to change it, make it a little bit better", Moir told The Canadian Press.

An adjustment has been made to the routine in an attempt to make it more family-friendly - a change the pair were expecting heading to Pyeongchang.

Nagasu became the first American woman to land a triple Axel at the Olympics, cleanly hitting the jump at the start of her programme to gain a season's best score of 137.53.

The eight-time national champions first made headlines for this routine last month during the Canadian Skating Nationals.

People fled through another door as the attacker ran amok inside the church. "Everybody started panicking and screaming". A man with a sword allegedly slashed at church-goers as they prayed in Indonesia, injuring five people, CNN reported.

The pair have now modified the fairly risqué move to a more conservative one for the Olympics, according to the Toronto Star.

"I think edgy would probably summarize most of the program quite well and that's what we were going for", Virtue said of their program at the Canadian championships in January, via the Toronto Star. The legendary ice dancing pair received flawless scores for this performance. Virtue herself jokingly referred to the lift as "porno" in a previous interview.

It's about both the chance at an Olympic gold medal, and about writing the final chapter of their distinguished careers together.
