9780887842733: Tessa and Scott: Our Journey from Childhood Dream to Gold

Tessa and Scott tracks the pair's 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 ice dancing. 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 skating's premiere athletes. A must-have for fans and collectors alike.

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.
