Canada’s favourite figure skaters have performed to Canada’s favourite band.


Earlier this week, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir announced that they would theme their final Olympic performance to the Tragically Hip’s “Long Time Running”. When asked why they chose that song, Moir told Canadian Press, “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.”


When asked what he would like to say to the duo, Hip bassist Gord Sinclair said, “What every Canadian wants to say – thank you”.

I’ll be really excited when they decide to dance to THIS:
