From "Narrow lead" (Golden Skate) --

“Tessa and I had a great performance today,” said Moir. We are on our game. We did everything we envisioned how the program is going. It is a great accomplishment for us. Having that said, it is our job to get this out of our head and really focus on our job on Sunday.”

“This is one of our favorite programs to do and we’re excited to bring Carmen to Japan,” Moir said of the free dance. “This is a huge event for us. It is an ISU championship and we take this very seriously. For us, it is a great way to compete against Meryl and Charlie and the other strong North American teams and get the feedback. It still gives us enough time to go home and regroup before Worlds.”

“We knew we had to be here and compete, trying to build our programs for the World Championships,” he added.

The Olympic Games are already on their minds, as Virtue confirmed.

“It is exactly one year from today when the opening ceremonies (take place),” she acknowledged. “We talked about it a lot today, actually. It seems to be a common conversation for us these days, just looking ahead at probably our last year competing.”

“We’re right on track and this has been a great season for us to build,” she added. “We tried new things and really pushed ourselves with what we are doing element-wise. Next year is always different, because you have to be prepared and ready early in the season. Everything comes really quickly in an Olympic year.

“We have some experience to draw from, but I think we’re just trying to enjoy the process, every little bit of it,” Virtue summed up. “The nerves before competition, those tough training days, we’re really kind of trying to embrace that and just enjoy this whole dream.”
