    The NBC Olympics site recently looked back at the top 20 moments of Vancouver 2010, and Virtue/Moir's gold was #20.

    Tessa Virtue was one of the athletes showcased on SportsNet's "The Beauty of Sport" issue.

    BTW, I have been wondering whether Virtue/Moir's Carmen costumes inspired Max Aaron's. Max's seems like a mash-up of theirs. .
    The top half of Max's costume reminds me of Virtue's original dress -- both have V-necks highlighted with what look like sheer insets around them. And an angular sheer insert appears to be on Max's back, not unlike the horizontal one that was on Moir's.

    ETA:
    Just want to be clear: I think it's great that Max appears to have had an appreciative eye for a couple of details of V/M's costumes, which seeped into the creative alchemy of coming up with the design of his own. Definitely not suggesting any misappropriation by Max. Love that my three favorite skaters all have Carmen in common.

    ETA, the black V-neck look is nothing new for Max, per this photo from 2012 US Nationals:

    Yes, Max's costume definitely looked like Tessa and Scott "inspired"

    And Susanna Rahkamo @ssusu retweeted Kokko's wonderful compliment to Virtue and Moir.

    skate_canada launched its Instagram account with a cute still photo of Virtue/Moir (off ice from HP Camp photo shoot), and posted the same photo on its Facebook page:

    http://instagram.com/skate_canada has added individual portraits of its entire national team.

    Thanks for all the links! I'm especially pleased that Susanna Rahkamo gave Tessa and Scott such a wonderful compliment. I'm also pleased that the ice dancing powers-that-be have commemorated Rahkamo/Kokko's contributions to ice dancing by making their step a part of the repertoire.

    Tessa can be such a chameleon in front of the camera. She's always beautiful, but she can look like almost a different person depending on the lighting, the styling, and the pose. It's fascinating.

    Thx very much for all the updates, marikat.

    The Procter & Gamble video is terrific. Love the tributes from P&G and its athletes to mothers like Mrs. Moir and Mrs. Virtue.
    And in case anyone else is wondering, the four brands above all are under the Procter & Gamble umbrella. (Pls don't get me wrong: not diminishing the visibility that Virtue/Moir will get from four major brands, each with its own marketing.)

    Thx to Doris too.
