Apparently Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov of Russia turned in a pairs free skate performance for the ages, winning the gold at the Iceberg Skating Palace. Not sure how you know you’ve won the gold while you’re still out on the ice, but it makes for some dramatic photos when the two broke down with pure joy and relief.
