Tessa & Scott: Our Journey from Childhood Dream to Gold

Tessa & Scott: Our Journey from Childhood Dream to Gold Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir dazzled the world when they became the first Canadians — and first North Americans — to win an Olympic gold medal in ice dancing in 2010. Now available in a stunning new paperback edition, Tessa and Scott share their incredible and inspiring story. Tessa and Scott: Our Journey from Childhood Dream to Gold tracks the pairs first meeting at the ages of seven and nine; their early competitions at the World Junior Championship and World Championships; and their incredible history-making, gold-medal performance at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, which established them as icons of the sport. Lavishly illustrated with never-before-published personal photographs and memorabilia collected over the course of their lives, this book is as much as a spectacular visual history as it is a behind-the-scenes look at the ascent of two of the worlds premiere athletes.

About the Author

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won the 2010 Olympic gold medal in ice dancing. They are also the 2010 World champions, the 2008 Four Continents champions, the 2006 World Junior champions, and the 2008–10 Canadian National champions. They received the first perfect score for ice dancing under the International Skating Union (ISU) Judging System, and are the current world record score holders for the original dance. As of September 2010, they are ranked fourth in the world by the ISU.

Steve Milton is a sportswriter who has covered six Winter Olympics and more than a dozen World Figure Skating Championships. He is the author of nine figure skating books, including Figure Skating's Greatest Stars and Figure Skating Now.
