Guest Tessa Virtue And Scott Moir

We humans tend to romanticize the "perfect partnership": Lennon and McCartney; Fred and Ginger; The Captain and Tennille...

But while no duo is absolutely perfect, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir come pretty close - it's a chemistry that makes them two of the best ice dancers in the world.

Scott and Tessa grew up skating in the same rink; when Scott's aunt paired them up, they were eight and ten years old. Scott and Tessa made their Olympic debut in 2010.

Together, they won gold, becoming the youngest Olympic ice dance champions in history. So, how do Scott and Tessa manage such an intense, intimate and - sorry, everybody - platonic relationship, when there's so much at stake?

After finishing second to their American rivals at this year's World Championships, there's plenty of motivation for the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, and, with talk of retirement, it might be the final chapter in the partnership that's defined their life.
