OTTAWA - Olympic ice dance champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir captured their sixth consecutive national ice dance crown at the Canadian skating championships on Saturday in what was likely their final competition on home ice.

Virtue, from London, Ont., and Moir, from Ilderton, Ont., scored 194.03 points -- a Canadian championship record. It wasn't a flawless performance as Virtue wobbled on their twizzles, which resemble side-by-side travelling spins.

Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje of Waterloo, Ont., were second with 183.54, while Alexandra Paul and Mitchell Islam of Barrie, Ont., won bronze (170.64).
