Canada took gold in the team event after stellar performances by Patrick Chan and Gabrielle Daleman on Monday, with Chan landing two quads early in his free skate on his way to finally winning Olympic gold.

Canadian duo Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue won ice dancing gold in 2010 and silver four years later, but decided they needed to make their routine less sexually suggestive after triumphing at the Canadian Championships.

Evgenia Medvedeva's 81.06 points were best in the women's competition on Sunday, giving the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation 10 points for a cumulative score of 31, good for second.

"I think it does say that it's a tough panel", Moir said.

Daleman's 137.14-point performance added eight points to Canada's cumulative score, bringing it up to 63. "I'm sorry, that's how I'm going to see it, that's how I'm going to enjoy it, and that's for me to decide".

North Korea's Kim invites South Korean president for summit
The earlier performance was the first by North Koreans in the South since August 2002. It was built in the 1960s as a luxury facility for US troops stationed in the South.

Virtue and Moir wound up with a score of 80.51, thanks to a flashy and technically impressive showing set to the Moulin Rouge soundtrack.

A Canadian, Olympic figure skating duo have chose to tone down their routine, which had been described as "risqué" and "lustful".

While neither Moir or Virtue have said they're removing the lift to be less provocative, many feel it's a smart move given the conservative nature of the Olympics judging panel.

Asked about the fact that she is only the third woman to land a triple Axel in the Olympics - after Japan's Midori Ito and Mao Asada - Nagasu, the daughter of Japanese immigrants who run a sushi restaurant, joked that maybe it was her ancestry that helped. "And I think Canada has a great chance, and I think we're a great skating country, the choreographers, the coaches, the skaters that have come from our country are second to none, and I think it's very important for us to win this event". "I survived, and I get to enjoy possibly a gold medal".

"Maybe it's the Japanese genetics - but lucky for me I'm American, so I'll be the first USA lady".
