Figure skater Scott Moir jabs Brett Favre with retirement talk

Tessa Virtue Scott Moir

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won their second Olympic gold medal in ice dancing on Tuesday with a record-setting performance, and it appears as though it will be the figure skating duo’s last. But in the interest of not sounding like Brett Favre, they don’t want to announce anything just yet.

After he and Virtue brought down the house with their incredible free dance, Moir took a lighthearted swipe at Favre when asked if we will see the pair again in 2022.

Virtue and Moir posted an overall score of 206.07, which was less than a point better than the 205.28 France’s Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron received. At ages 28 and 30, respectively, it would not be a surprise if Virtue and Moir decide they are done competing.

Favre has grown accustomed to hearing remarks about his infamous changes of heart toward the end of his NFL career, and they don’t always come from football players. Did he ever expect to hear it from a figure skater? We highly doubt it.
