Maple Leaf Moments: Skating to Top
Canadian Olympic Team Mark

Skating to top: On the 10th day of competition at Vancouver 2010, London, ON’s Tessa Virtue and Ilderton, ON’s Scott Moir became the first North American ice dancers to ever win Olympic gold.  At Sochi 2014 they’ll look to be just the second ice dance team to repeat as Olympic champions, following Russians Pasha Grischuk and Evgeny Platov in 1994-1998.

On this day: Calgary native Duff Gibson makes history at the age of 39 years old and 190 days by becoming the oldest individual gold medallist in Olympic Winter Games history when he clocked the fastest time in the Skeleton event in Turin on February 17, 2006. Canada finishes first, second and fourth in the event, with Jeff Pain (Calgary, AB) claiming silver and Paul Boehm (Calgary, AB) missing the podium by just 0.26 seconds.
