On no! Would that stumble cost Tessa Virtue
and Scott Moir a world title? Nope! And that’s why they are kicking off our
Monday Moments. At the World Championships in Finland, Virtue
and Moir dominated the short dance. They finished with a score of 82.43, broke
their own world record, and opened up a huge 5.5-point cushion heading into the Free-Dance. It was that cushion that helped them win the
gold, and their third World Championship. They’ve won every one of their events this
season. Not bad for a team that took two years away
from the sport. They were not the only Canadians on the podium
in Finland, in fact Canadian history was made in the women’s competition. Kaetlyn Osmond won silver, Gabby
Daleman won bronze. And as you can tell by the looks on their
faces, they knew it. It’s the first time Canada has had two women
on the podium at this event and it was the first medal in women’s since Joannie Rochette’s
silver in 2009. Just a reminder, Osmond broke her leg back
in 2014 in 2 places. Patrick Chan ended up in 5th in the men’s
competition. Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu captured his
2nd World Title. And after saying he had a hip injury, Eric Radford and Meagan Duhamel ended up in seventh place. It was starting to look like the UConn Huskies
women’s basketball Were never going to lose. Their winning streak was up to an insane 111 games. Until this weekend. And Mississippi State in the final four. A team they beat by 60 points last year in
the sweet-sixteen, beat the Huskies in overtime. The streak is over! Unfortunately for Mississippi state, they
lost in the championship game to South Carolina. Speaking of streaks coming to an end, that’s
exactly what happened at the Women’s World Hockey Championship. The Canadians had beat Finland 52 straight
times, that came to an end with a shocking 4-3 win by the Fins. It’s the first time Canada have ever opened
the Worlds with two straight losses. Andre De Grasse was back on the track. He ran legs in both the 4×100-metre and 4×200
at the Florida Relays. And the team won gold in both races. Not a bad way to follow up their bronze in
Rio. And before we go we have to show you this. I’ve watching a lot of hockey in my lifetime
, I have never seen anything like this. Blackhawks and Bruins. Richard Panic goes sliding into the Bruins
net. A loose puck comes to his teammate Artemi
Panarin. But his first shot is kept out, but Panic
in the net. His second shot, goes in. Panic gets an assist from inside the Bruins
net. Looking ahead to this week. Brad Gushu off to a great start at the World
Curling Championship, of course you And we have the start if the Major League
league baseball season. Both those will be featured on next week’s
show, so be sure to hit the subscribe button so you don’t miss it. Thanks for watching

    That stumble should have cost them the title since they were over scored in SD. P/C were really better.
