Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir—a.k.a. the sexy Canadian figure skaters who had to tone down the hotness of their free dance for the Olympics—are now three-time gold medalists, making them among the most successful in their discipline’s history.

The Associated Press reported that the pair—who’ve been skating together for twenty years, since they were kids—took home the third Olympic gold medal of their career last night. Even better, the whole thing was a comeback story:

It was the second gold medal of the Pyeongchang Games for Virtue and Moir, who were instrumental in helping Canada win the team event . It was also their third gold overall after winning their home Olympics in Vancouver in 2010, and their fifth total medal after two silvers at the 2014 Sochi Games.

They briefly retired after that disappointment, seemingly content with their place in history, only to decide a couple years ago to make one more run at Olympic glory.

Now, they’re being called the greatest ice dancers ever.

And condolences to the rest of us, for being henceforth deprived of their absolutely bonkers on-ice chemistry.

I get that everyone is hot for Virtue/Moir but the SHIBSIBS WERE ROBBED. They’re the most technical dancers and don’t have to rely on SeXinEss/We’re Just SO IN LOVE to convey emotion/impress you with their dancing ability.
