Top 25 Women of Influence 2018: Tessa Virtue

 

 

Tessa Virtue

Figure Skater & Olympic Gold Medalist

Tessa Virtue is a household name not only in Canada, but around the world. Having won not one, but two Olympic Gold Medals for ice dancing in 2010 and 2018 (plus a third as part of the 2018 Canadian figure skating team), and setting a record-breaking score in the short ice dance category, Virtue’s earned her spot as the most heavily decorated Olympic figure skater in history (an honour she shares with her partner, Scott). Following the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, Virtue was named one of the most famous female athletes in the world by ESPN, and in July she was announced as an inductee of Canada’s Walk of Fame, in the Sports and Athletics category.
