SOCHI SCENE: Moir's celebration

SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Scott Moir sure knows how to celebrate medals, whether they are gold or silver.

The Canadian ice dancer and partner Tessa Virtue added the silver Monday night to the gold they won in Vancouver four years ago. About 90 minutes after finishing behind training partners Meryl Davis and Charlie White of the United States, Moir returned to the ice in sweats and tennis shoes.

He waddled to center ice on the west rink, bent over and kissed the surface, then polished the Olympic rings with his hand.

Moir then joked with several reporters seated in the media section before leaving the Iceberg Arena.

It was a similar display to what he did in Vancouver. Back then, he even passed around his gold medal for the cleaning crew to touch and take photos with. He climbed into the stands, at one point nearly toppling over a barrier, all the while wearing a smile.

Four years ago, Virtue actually joined him for a few moments and photos with coaches and volunteers. This time, Moir went solo.
