Comeback complete: Virtue and Moir skate to 3rd world ice dance title

Canada's ice dance darlings Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir have captured their third world figure skating title.

The Olympic gold and silver medallists, who took a huge 5.5-point lead into the free dance, scored 116.19 for their program to Pilgrims on a Long Journey by French Canadian artist Coeur de pirate, and Sam Smith's Latch.

They finished with 198.62 points overall.

Virtue, from London, Ont., and Moir, from Ilderton, Ont., made a stunning comeback after stepping away from the sport for two seasons. They've won every one of their events this season, shattering world records along the way.

They broke their own world record in the short dance on Friday.

Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje of Waterloo, Ont., finished fourth with a personal-best score of 184.81, while fellow Canadians Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier were eighth with 178.99.
