The recently concluded Figure Skating Championship of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics got the youngest champion ever. The Figure skating couple were Scott Moir- 22 and Tessa Virtue- 20. They are representing the host country, Canada.

Moir and Virtue made the home court crowd on their feet as they skate amazingly to Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 5. yesterday.

The couple had taken the lead after Sunday’s original dance and seemed to make time stand still with their free skate, scoring 110.42 points to give them an overall 221.57.

Virtue and Moir began skating together in 1997. In the 2001-2002 season, they won the bronze medal at the 2002 Canadian National Championship at the novice level. In 2003, they placed 7th at the 2003 Canadian Nationals in the junior division.

They have received the first 10.0 for ice dance under the ISU Judging System. As of January 2010, they were ranked 3rd in the world.
