Product description

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir dazzled the world when they became the first Canadians ? and first North Americans ? to win an Olympic gold medal in ice dancing in 2010. Now available in a stunning new paperback edition, Tessa and Scott share their incredible and inspiring story. Tessa and Scott: Our Journey from Childhood Dream to Gold tracks the pair’s first meeting at the ages of seven and nine; their early competitions at the World Junior Championship and World Championships; and their incredible history-making, gold-medal performance at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, which established them as icons of the sport. Lavishly illustrated with never-before-published personal photographs and memorabilia collected over the course of their lives, this book is as much as a spectacular visual history as it is a behind-the-scenes look at the ascent of two of the world’s premiere athletes.
