Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir are on the verge of earning more gold at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Favorites heading into the ice dance, the Canadian duo scored a world-record 83.67 points in the short program. As a result, they enter Monday night's free dance (Tuesday morning in Pyeongchang, South Korea) in the driver's seat.
They can't be too comfortable. Their top challengers, France's Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron, kept pace with an 81.93 score. The Olympic newcomers can pay back their former training partners, who thwarted last year's bid for a third straight world championship.
Both renowned pairings will once again vie for first place.
