Team USA Gets Bronze In Ice Dancing - All Thanks To Shibutani Siblings

21 February 2018

Their winning ice dance was put to music from the film "Moulin Rouge".

"We feel really good and excited heading into our second Olympic Games", Maia, 23, told PEOPLE prior to arriving in Pyeongchang.

It was the final competitive dance for the pair, who have been skating partners for more than 20 years and plan to retire from competition.

"We came in with the intention of being confident, not just being anxious about going home", Donato told the media conference.

Speaking after her victory was announced, Virtue said the experience was "amazing".

Syria pledges to down any hostile aircraft like Israeli one
But just as Putin blocked Israel's bombing campaign in Syria, he holds a similar trump card in NY : a Security Council veto. This requires even more precision bombing of mainly Iranian targets in Syria as well as weapons, vehicles, and buildings.

"We have such respect especially for Gabriella and Guillaume". They had previously trained at the Artic Edge Ice Arena in Canton, Mich. alongside Meryl Davis and Charlie White of the U.S. The Americans finished second to Virtue and Moir in Vancouver and then reversed the order in Sochi four years later. 20 years later the Canadian duo is schooling the younger teams in how it's done and shattering records as they go. First, Papadakis and Cizeron broke their own record in the free dance with an evocative skate to "Moonlight Sonata", setting a world record with 205.28 total points.

By winning the title, Virtue and Moir brought their Olympic medal haul to five and became the most decorated figure skaters in history.

Actor Ryan Reynolds thanked Virtue and Moir for "agreeing to raise my children as your own" on Twitter (Reynolds shares two children with actress Blake Lively). "We did the best we could on the ice and it was a very emotional moment and we're really proud of that silver medal". They were, I think, anxious that there was some bitterness or resentment, and there really, truly is not. Those are moments we will never forget.

Hey, we all remember the first boy we ever had a crush on. "It's one of my favorite free dances to skate so this performance here at the Olympics is a dream come true".

Earlier in these Winter Olympics, Moir and Virtue had taken out a somewhat-NSFW move from their routine.

NBA All-Star Weekend Diary Day 1: Touchdown in LA
On Saturday there will be the Slam Dunk and three point contests while Sunday is the big finale with the actual NBA All Star game. Kemba Walker, Andre Drummond , Goran Dragic and Bradley Beal are the respectable replacements for the four injured all-stars.

"It hasn't really sunk in yet, but it's just an incredible feeling", said the gold medallist, 25. "That was so special to us and we're going to return that favor", he said. Cassie Sharpe, also of Canada, took gold, while France's Marie Martinod, who came out of retirement at Burke's behest, won silver. We can just pretend.

"We knew it was possible and we wanted it (the gold)".

Norway edged Slovenia 2-1 in overtime on Tuesday to win a spot in the quarter-finals of the men's Olympic ice hockey tournament, earning its first Olympic win and a matchup against a fearsome Russian team.

Meanwhile, Aussies Lucas Mata and David Mari recorded a personal best time in their third run at Alpenisa Sliding Centre.

In her third race at these Olympics, she was given a yellow card and disqualified from the 1000-meter qualifiers.

Lindsey Vonn responds to Twitter trolls after failing to medal at Olympics
Hours before the Super G event on Saturday, Vonn posted an emotional tribute to her grandfather on Instagram . Boutin had won the bronze medal after South Korean medal hope Choi Min-Jeong was disqualified for interfering.

If the case is confirmed, it will come before the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which is handling doping matters at the Olympics and has an ad hoc division in Pyeongchang.
