Virtue added that Moir was her ideal partner.
"He is the best in every way," she said. "More than that, he's the kind of friend that always has the right thing to say. The kind of human who epitomizes generosity and kindness. And the kind of skating partner that builds you up to feel like you can conquer the world."
Considered among the greatest ice dancing duos in the sport's history, they join the Hall following a career which saw them win Olympic gold in the event at Vancouver 2010 and Pyeongchang 2018. After joining forces in 1997, the two developed a captivating and prolific partnership on the ice.
The team would go on to win eight national titles and three world championships together.
"It was about more than just results and what we created on the ice. It was about two young people using sport to try to become the best version of themselves for each other," Moir said. "It was a truly beautiful journey."

I saw part of their acceptance speech to the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame on Skate Canada’s instagram account.

Made me tear up it was so good.

Love these two.
