Congrats Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir

I had the pleasure of attending a press conference with Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, the Olympic Gold Medalists for Ice Dancing. The above shot is a Photoshop enhanced version of a image I took using my 1D Mark IV and a 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM II lens. Scott is a funny and confident young man, and that served him and Tessa very well tonight as their skate was flawless. As a United States citizen, I was hoping our home team would win, but I feel the best team won tonight and their performance was certainly gold medal worthy. Congrats Scott and Tessa!

I took this shot personally while working at the Photo Media Centre at the Vancouver Olympics. The camera settings were 1/160 sec @ f/5.6, ISO 4000 at focal length of 115mm.
