Hundreds of People Infected With Virus in Winter Olympics Host City

Canadian Speed Skaters sits a table in the dinning hall inside the Athletes Gangneung Village at the 2018 Pyeonchang Winter Olympics

Ice dancer Scott Moir and partner Tessa Virtue, along with Canada's deep squad, grabbed a team gold medal that Canadians desperately sought in Monday's Olympic free skates.

Jamie Anderson of the United States celebrates her gold medal after the women s slopestyle final at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. With their new hardware, Virtue and Moir join the club of the most decorated figure skaters in Olympic history, tied with two retired Olympians. Although they received a flawless score, won first place, and ultimately qualified for the 2018 games in South Korea, there's one move in that routine you won't see them perform at the more conservative Olympic games: a super-sexy lift. They have given our Canadian Olympic team a fantastic start to the Games and have set the stage for future successes.

Alina Zagitova of Russian Federation competes in the ladies single team figure skating competition during the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics Monday at the Gangneung Oval in Gangneung, South Korea.

Canada had just settled for silver in the inaugural team event at those 2014 Games, and it didn't sit well with a team that boasts some of the world's greatest skaters.

Nagasu never had the chance to compete in a team event - it didn't exist in 2010.

Gold in the team event in Pyeongchang would be theirs.

Congress passes spending bill to end USA government shutdown
The brief shutdown in Washington came at a sensitive time for financial markets, with world stock markets diving in the past week. The first, conservative Republicans , worry the increased spending is fiscally irresponsible.

Rippon, replacing US champion Nathan Chen, had a fluid and steady routine, but his score was hurt by not hitting a quad.

"We still have a big job to do (in the team event), then again next week". The veterans stepped up and said, we got this. After a lukewarm performance in the short program, Chan was looking to make a statement with his free skate. A first place is worth 10 points, second is worth 9, third is worth 8 and so on. Nagasu's second place was worth nine points, while Daleman's third was worth eight.

After they skated to a song about love, the internet wants Olympic gold medallists Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir to be in love.

"I was like, 'There's so many more people, '" he said. The performance has so much sizzle that one of the more risqué lifts is being dropped when the couple performs this same routine during the Olympics. "Some team members thought it was a dress rehearsal, others were trying to go after it and win the gold medal". I know that's not a Patrick Chan skate, but what I did see was him battle and it was a veteran move.

"We wanted to win the team event in 2018", the 30-year-old Moir said.

"I'm focusing on my own programs", she said, "but to have the team atmosphere in the kiss-and-cry, and the podium, it's so incredible".
