How did Scott Moir Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on September 2, 1987, in London, Ontario, Scott Moir is the son of Joe and Alma Moir. Raised in Ilderton, Ontario, he began skating at the tender age of three (not surprising, considering his mother is a figure skating coach).
Having inherited his mother’s talents, it didn’t take long for him to grasp the basic skills- in fact, he had already started to participate in competitions while still in grade school. When he was ten years old, the young skater was paired up with Tessa Virtue, by his aunt. Together, they trained with Suzanne Killing and Paul MacIntosih in Kitchener-Waterloo.
Within a few years of skating together, the pair had made it to the novice level for the 2001-02 season. Over time, as they intensified their training, they participated in more and more events. By 2004, they had won the Junior title at the Canadian Championships, which landed them a spot in the Canadian team at the World Junior Championships.
Since then, they’ve continued to progress in strides. In 2010, the pair took part in their first Olympic Games in Vancouver, where they successfully won gold in ice dancing. From there, they achieved podium-finishes at the Four Continents, World Championships, and Grand Prix Finals, before returning to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, where they won the silver medal.
On a roll, Scott and Moir will once again be competing for a gold medal later this month at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, they were also named as the Canadian flag bearers in January 2018.
As it is, figure skating can be terribly expensive. Because of this, it’s not uncommon for skaters to participate in ice shows to recuperate some of their training costs- Scott is no exception. For instance, he regularly performs and tours with Stars on Ice on a yearly basis. Some of the other shows that he’s taken part in include All That Skate, Festa on Ice, and Shall We Dance on Ice.
