Bio

Tessa and Scott are the most successful Canadian ice dance team in history, being the first North Americans to win the Olympic Gold Medal for ice dance at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games. They were also the youngest, and the first team to win a gold medal at their first Olympic Games. In addition to their 3 Olympic medals, they have won four World Championships (three senior and one junior), three Four Continents Championships, eight Canadian Championships (seven senior and one junior), and six Skate Canada International titles. Additionally, they currently hold world records for highest score in original and short dance, as well as combined total score.

The 2017-18 season marks Tessa and Scott’s 20th year as ice dance partners. This February, all eyes will be on the duo as they compete on the world’s biggest stage at the Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. It will be a once in a lifetime experience that is twenty years in the making.

Who inspires you? My mom, who never ceases to amaze me with her strength, wit, intuitive insight, and pursuit of excellence. My brothers. They serve the community; they are great fathers; they are great men.

Favourite Movie Funny Face Bloodsport
Favourite TV Show The Newsroom The Office
Favourite Food Chocolate Barbeque steak & potatoes
Favourite Hobby Dancing and golfing (not necessarily at the same time!) Playing for the IHL team Poplar Hill Flyers. So, hockey!
Favourite Song What’s Going On – Marvin Gaye Grace Too – The Tragically Hip
Favourite Concert Blue Rodeo The Tragically Hip farewell tour. It was so emotional.
Favourite Spot Paris, France Where my family is… HOME.
Favourite Guilty Pleasure Watching really bad Christmas movies! Angel food cake.
Favourite Emoji Monkey covering eyes. Not an Emoji kind of guy. But when I use them, people take notice.
If you weren’t an ice dancer, what would you be? Ballet was my first passion, so perhaps I would have pursued it more seriously when I was young. Nowadays though, more likely something in business! I probably would have wanted to be a hockey player. You know, if I didn’t have stone hands.
Favourite memory competing together so far Vancouver and Sochi – taking the ice and skating over the Olympic rings, representing Canada, is the best feeling. Any Olympic Winter Games Performance.
Favourite thing about your ice dance partner His drive, his relentless pursuit of perfection, his sense of humour, and his reactions to my all-emoji text conversations 😛 How do you narrow it down? She is an all around beauty.
What are you looking forward to most this upcoming season? Pushing ourselves to the limit – and seeing what we’re truly capable of creating. Enjoying every moment with the Virtch!
What does the 20th anniversary of your partnership mean to you? It means that I’m incredibly grateful to have shared so many moments and memories together – and that we’re getting old! Means we have skated together for 20 years.
