UWindsor student reclaims world ice dance crown

UWindsor psychology student Tessa Virtue and her ice dancing partner Scott Moir reclaimed their top ranking at the world figure skating championships in Nice, France.

The pair won the 2010 world title as well as the gold medal at the Vancouver Olympic Games, but had to settle for second place at the 2011 world championship. This week, they won both the short program and free skate, finishing with a total of 182.65 points – more than four points ahead of the defending titlists, Meryl Davis and Charlie White.
