Tessa Virtue, Scott Moir set world record in Regina


Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir have added another world record to their stunning return to ice dancing.

Canada’s Olympic gold and silver medallists won Skate Canada International on Saturday, scoring 199.86 points to top their previous world best of 198.62 they set in winning the world championships last spring.

Virtue, from London, Ont., and Moir, from Ilderton, Ont., haven’t lost a competition since they launched their comeback a year ago.

Skating to music from “Moulin Rouge,” Virtue and Moir brought the Brandt Centre to its feet in what was their final appearance at the event. The two said they’ll likely retire after the Pyeongchang Olympics.

Canadians Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje were second with 190.01 points while Americans Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue were third with 189.43.

Kaetlyn Osmond climbed back on top of the Skate Canada International podium, winning the women’s singles title.
