Meet Tessa Virtue
Five-Time Olympic Medalist, Three-Time World Champion, Canada Walk of Fame Inductee

In PyeongChang 2018, Tessa Virtue and her ice dance partner, Scott Moir, became the most decorated figure skaters in Olympic history with five career medals – three gold and two silver.

Tessa and Scott first captured the hearts of Canadians when the pair had one of the most memorable performances in Vancouver 2010 becoming both the first North Americans and youngest ice dancers to be crowned Olympic Champions.

Following her double gold-medal performance in PyeongChang 2018, Tessa co-created the Thank You Canada Tour, which visited the small towns that are usually flown over with bigger skating shows, as a way to say thank you for the support that these communities had shown throughout their careers.

In 2019, in her final tour, the pair rocked the rink with a blend of incomparable artistry, live music and their greatest performances and created memorable moments across Canada by welcoming talented Special Olympics athletes to perform solos to promote inclusivity.

Now retired from ice dance, Tessa continues to be a strong advocate for female empowerment and works closely with FitSpirit, an organization whose mission is to raise public awareness around the problem of declining participation in sport among pre-teen and teenage girls.

An ambitious academic, Tessa plans to pursue her MBA and channel her entrepreneurial spirit into her next role: CEO.
