Tessa Virtue And Scott Moir Will Pay Tribute To Gord Downie

Try not to cry!

The decorated pair will give fans in Korea a special treat when they skate to the Hip’s Longtime Running!


Moir said. “It’s special for us that we get to skate to the Hip, and it’s our tribute to one of my heroes and a guy who was so wonderfully weird, and just how he embraced life.”


“Long Time Running” was also the name of a documentary that followed the Tragically Hip’s heart-rending cross-Canada farewell tour of 2016.


The gala is a curtain-closing tradition in figure skating. Medal winners each skate exhibition programs that have virtually no rules — all show and no competition, and beloved by figure skating fans.
