Now available in a stunning new paperback edition, world champion ice dancers Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir share the incredible and inspiring story that led to their history-making gold-medal performance at the 2010 Winter Games. From the pair’s first meeting in 1995 to their rapid rise on the international circuit, to their spellbinding performance at Vancouver’s Pacific Coliseum on February, 22, 2010, which established them as icons of the sport, this lavishly illustrated book is as much a spectacular visual history as it is a behind-the-scenes look at the ascent of two of the world’s premier athletes.
