UWindsor student earns fourth national figure skating title

UWindsor psychology student Tessa Virtue and her ice dance partner Scott Moir secured their fourth Canadian title at the 2012 Canadian Figure Skating Championships, Saturday in Moncton, N.B.

The reigning Olympic champions, Virtue and Moir secured the victory with a routine styled Broadway on Ice. Virtue told the Globe and Mail they had drawn inspiration from the 1957 film Funny Face: “We watched a lot of Audrey (Hepburn) and Fred (Astaire), especially at the beginning of the season.”

The duo had missed last year’s Canadian championships after Virtue had undergone surgery.
