The Inside Edge is where I take you behind-the-scenes of the @SkatingPj Podcast. It is no secret that I have known these two for a very long time. I am a big fan not only of them as skaters, but as people. This podcast had been in the works for some time and I was delighted to grab a quick half hour with 2010 Olympic champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir before they headed off to the rink for the Stars on Ice 2016 Toronto show.
A lot has changed since they first started skating together 19 years ago. They have come a long way from skating together as children to national and international titles and acclaim. Many would have thought that Tessa and Scott would have nothing more to accomplish in the amateur ranks of skating. Part of this podcast is spent talking about their return to competition and their new training locale in Montreal with Marie-France Dubreuil and Patrice Lauzon.
They have never really left the ice and skating in shows during their time away takes all kinds of training. In addition to their return to the amateur ranks, they have been involved in other projects as well, such as Tessa’s launching of a new a jewellery line.
This podcast is a great snapshot of where and what Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir have been up to. Connect with Tessa and Scott on social media. Twitter: @tessavirtue & @scottmoir. Instagram: @tessavirtue17 & @scottmoir14.
The Outside Edge is where I highlight videos from across the skating world and bring you a little bonus from somewhere on YouTube or beyond. In this case, during my interview with Tessa and Scott, he brought up this performance – I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did! Here is the gold medal free dance for the 2004 Canadian Junior title in ice dance from Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.
