Canadian fans held back tears along with the women as they lined up to receive their silver medals. But as one Twitter user noted, the sadness turned again to smiles once they rewatched what's being pegged as the #GIFoftheGames.
The GIF-able moment occurred when Canadian rookie Sarah Nurse received a penalty, the team's third infraction in the first period. The camera went to a crowd shot of Team Canada athletes, including ice dance gold medallist Scott Moir reacting to the call.
As soon as the moment hit the screen, it seemed Canadians fell even harder for the five-time Olympic medallist.
He's not on the ice and yet somehow Scott Moir manages to produce the highlight of the first period. https://t.co/QbhgDxMknp
