A crush that led to Olympic gold

Canadians basking in the warm glow of Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue’s gold medal winning performance in the ice dancing were all asking the same question on Tuesday … Are they as close off the ice as they are on it?

Turns out the answer is no, but things might have turned out diffrerently, as Allan Dowd reports

“I know I had a crush on Scott, that’s for sure, but I wasn’t alone there,” she told reporters.

“That’s certainly changed,” Moir shot back.

And no, they are certainly not dating now.

“Just on the ice for seven minutes every time we do the program,” Moir joked.
