Canada moved into first place after a stunning free skate by Gabrielle Daleman, with Moir and his partner Tessa Virtue still to compete.

Altogether, the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation took the silver medal with a final score of 66, and team US took the bronze with 62.

The only thing missing from Canadian figure skater Patrick Chan's resume is an Olympic gold medal.

Canada's team captains, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, tied the all-time record for most Olympic medals at four. In a very interesting move, Papadakis and Cizeron skipped the Olympic team competition so they could focus on the ice dance competition where Virtue and Moir will be the main rivals.

Adam Rippon of the US had an absolutely brilliant run in the men's free skate, putting up a score of 172.98, with a almost flawless routine.

The U.S. defended its bronze medal it won in the team event in Sochi.

It is a great honour for me, on behalf of the Government of Canada, to congratulate Max and Mark on their respective silver and bronze achievements.

Medvedeva nailed every element in a program that broke her own mark set a year ago in another team event.

Team Canada celebrates their gold medal in the team event.

But as the bus wound its way to the rink, the news hit their phones: Chan had just turned in the highest score of the men's long program.

"We really wanted a sleek, modern, contemporary esthetic overall", Virtue told the Star's Rosie DiManno.

Rippon executed a clean free skate to finish third in the five-man field.

On Sunday, Redmond Gerard of the United States made history with his gold medal in the men's snowboarding slopestyle final, becoming the first athlete born this millennium to top a Winter Olympics event. "I'm going to hold this medal tight to me". Skating in his third and final Olympic Winter Games, he earned a season's best score of 179.75 points.

For them, it's a chance to work out the kinks in a competitive environment, fine-tuning their own programs for what really matters in the coming days. I know that's not a Patrick Chan skate, but what I did see was him battle and it was a veteran move. In the pairs short program, the US also placed fourth, earning seven points for both of the first night's events. "Going into it, I was like a train, getting on those tracks and getting some speed", she said.

Of all the teams here, Duhamel believes Canada's is the most unified, in part because many of them have grown up together, in part because she and Radford and Chan and Moir and Virtue will also be retiring together, after this competition.
