The internet reacting to Virtue and Moir gold medal win is the greatest thing ever

It’s safe to say that Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir’s experience at the Pyeongchang Olympics will go down in history.

From being chosen to represent Canada as the flag bearers during the opening ceremony to breaking the internet with their Moulin Rouge ice dance routine to posting a world record score for their gold medal performance, the pair is a force to be reckoned with. (No wonder their names are still trending on Twitter.)

Virtue and Moir are now the first figure skaters in history to own five Olympic medals. They already had a gold from Vancouver, two silver medals from Sochi, and the team event gold they won last week in Pyeongchang.

But what makes the pair’s time in Pyeongchang even more surreal is that it’s said to be their final Olympic Games.

At Tuesday’s event, Virtue and Moir were the final team to hit the ice and they gave a picture-perfect performance on the world’s biggest stage.

Beating out the French team of Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron’s world record score of 205.28, the Canadians finished with a new world record of 206.07.

And of course, the internet could hardly contain itself.

From former Olympic athletes to Hollywood’s finest, here are the best reactions to Scott and Tessa’s life-changing gold medal win.
