Virtue, Moir to be Canada's flag-bearers at Pyeongchang 2018

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir will be Canada's flag-bearers for the upcoming Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. They are three-time world champions.

Ontario's Virtue and Moir stepped away from competition for two years after the last Winter Games but returned as strong as ever. "I mean it doesn't get any better than this".

It's the first time in the country's history it will be represented by dual flag-bearers.

The pair thrilled the home crowd at Vancouver 2010 to become the first North Americans and the youngest skaters ever to win Olympic ice dance gold. The team also earned a silver medal at the 2014 Games in Sochi.

"The privilege of carrying the flag comes with great responsibility that we do not take lightly".

If there's one thing better than winning an Olympic gold medal - maybe it's this. They are the first duo to carry Canada's flag into the opening ceremony. "We always say that we see that pressure as moral support because we put as much pressure on ourselves as we can and we're going to be ready for the opportunity".

Scott Moir skated off the ice at Sochi 2014 draped in a Canadian flag. "We have to embody those Olympic values and we hope to make the country proud", added Virtue. "Team Canada is ready and we can not wait to be in Pyeongchang with the Maple Leafs on our backs and in our hearts".
