    For a handy-dandy new (as of July 6) listing of links to well over one hundred Virtue/Moir videos going as far back as 2004, see this incredible tumblr post :

    Photos from "Tessa & Scott's Golf Classic" fundraiser in June -- for the benefit of Ilderton Skating Club and of a children's charity (seven photos from the club's album):

    News Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir

    I have not posted or checked any posts for awhile here at Golden Skate, so I don't know if anyone else has posted this. Anyway, I just heard this news on the radio today - Virtue and Moir are making a six part tv show this winter about their preparation for the upcoming Olympics in Sochi. It's going to be about their lives on and off the ice. I am looking forward to seeing this show!

    I copied this post from Ladskater over so that the link would be easy to find by V&M fans, even after the thread in The Edge is archived.

    And I will repeat here what I said in Ladskater's original post: I wanna be Canadian! They have skating on TV. That program is going to be splendid.

    As luck would have it, I stumbled into a Barnes & Noble that actually stocked one copy of the coffee-table-sized book about Tessa and Scott. I splurged on it. It's so rare to have a book (much less a TV program) devoted to an in-depth treatment of one skater or one skating couple. I feel uncommonly lucky to have this. (I demand equal publishing time for Davis and White.) It inspired me to root out my copy of Torvill and Dean, a book published just before the 1984 Olympics, which had a lot of detailed text on Jayne and Chris's life, training, and inspirations. I am rarely thrifty when it comes to skating books, because I know all too well that there aren't going to be a lot of them around. Even if I get them all, these days in the U.S. that won't amount to a huge expenditure. Grab 'em when I see 'em.

    By the way, has anyone else noticed what a chameleon Tessa is in photographs? She can look so diferent from picture to picture, and it isn't makeup. She just seems to change how she projects herself.

Piano accompaniment is also the work of the talented athlete and musician.
    The four skaters are scheduled to compete Saturday, August 10th at 14:00 and 20:00 respectively. ...

    Webcasting: Next best thing to being there!

    Do we have to pay for the webcast or is it free?

    Free or not, I'm really excited to hear that V/M would be showing their SD this week

    It will be interesting to see how this decision plays out.

    1. It turns out to be a unwelcome distraction as they prepare for the big showdown in Sochi.

    2. It turns out to be a welcome diversion, taking off some of the pressure as they prepare for the big showdown in Sochi.

    A six-part series doesn't sound like it would be non-invasive.

    Hopefully, it turns out to be more like a friendly documentary for their fans; Nothing too distractive for the dancers themselves.
