Scott and tessa dating not yet
But as Tessa said, we’re mature enough to handle that.” At the end of the day, Virtue and Moir said they don’t want to sound like they’re blaming Zoueva for their loss here in Sochi.“She’s given us a lot of great things in our career,” said Moir.“This wasn’t a failure; this was a successful Games for us.“We had some odd things happen this year that haven’t happened before, we expected that Marina would march with us (in the opening ceremony) and be with our team like she was in Vancouver,” said Moir.“It was a tough pill to swallow and also not being at our national championships for the first time in our whole career was odd.
It finally reached the point that Virtue and Moir confronted Zoueva to discuss her commitment to them and whether she was doing enough to help them defend their 2010 Olympic gold medal.
“We went to Marina on countless occasions and told her that we weren’t happy and in no way were we going to be happy with a silver medal (in Sochi),” said Moir. It felt a little bit like we were in quicksand because (the American pair) were getting away from us.
There were some suggestions that the American team’s programs were simply more appealing than the Canadian’s — and it was Zoueva who choreographed both.
The disenchantment began to build for Virtue and Scott as the Olympic approached.
“We were both pretty blunt with her in the fall — and even leading up to the Olympics — that we weren’t happy and we felt sometimes that she wasn’t in our corner,” Moir added. She’s been with us now for 10 years and I really think that she loves us and she pours her heart into our choreography.” Still, despite their frustrations leading up to the Games and the fact that the international judges seemed to prefer the programs of Davis and White, not enough was done, obviously, to give Virtue and Moir the winning program for the Sochi Olympics.As it turned out, Davis and White cruised to the ice-dance gold, easily outscoring Virtue and Moir, despite the fact that both teams seemed to skate excellent programs.
