Tessa and Scott's straight line lift is called "The Goose"
In Moir and Virtue's most famous maneuver, Virtue's shin balances precariously on Moir's back.
It's called 'the Goose.' We called it that because people were calling it 'the Eagle' and we didn't want it to be too American so we changed it," Moir joked, after their skate. "It was kind of our inside joke but now I'm sharing it with everyone."
It was a move that was difficult to master, with Moir and Virtue working on it for the better part of two years. After performing it last year during a season shortened due to injury, Moir joked that Virtue should "do a 360" jump on her descent back to the ice. Virtue liked the idea, and at Skate Canada, her in-air spin drew cheers from the crowd.
"Tessa and I really pride ourselves on doing different things and really doing moves that are our own," Moir said, "They are tricky lifts but we wouldn't have it any other way and we're always willing and excited to push ourselves with innovative lifts"
If you are referring to V/M...Personally, I don't see V/M's score as being that outrageous. They didn't trip on any required elements, just transitions. I can understand the argument that perhaps their transition mark and execution mark should then be lower, but they definitely still should have been first.
Agree to disagree then. I recognize that the trip didn't happen on any elements, but they did botch their twizzles somewhat and one judge still gave them a +2 (they got a positive GOE overall for it). Plus the PCS they got implied that it was an incredibly well skated program, and I didn't get that. Drop the PCS down by three or four points overall, then it would've been fair. If you want to argue that P/B were overscored too, I won't disagree.
