The Winter Games ARE HERE!!!

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir lead Team Canada into the Opening Ceremony tonight in Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium in South Korea. The pair will skate the ice dance portion of the team event on Sunday.

The day started with Men’s Skate, and Free-Style skiing. The figure skating meet began a few hours before the Opening Ceremony. Also, this is the first year for mixed doubles in Curling.

Tomorrow, watch for Alpine Skiing, Biatholon, Cross Country, Curling and Figure Skating. Find out more about the Olympics and the schedules HERE.
