Virtue and Moir, who will be trying to become the first Canadian figure skaters to defend their Olympic gold medal at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, registered a competition total of 181.03 points.
The London, Ontario duo admitted afterwards their performance can still be better, and there is still some room for improvement. They received a one point deduction from the judges for having a lift that went too long.
Virtue and Moir's biggest rival, are the defending world champions and Olympic silver medalists, Charlie White and Meryl Davis of the United States, who won Skate America last week in posting a score of 188.23.
However Virtue and Moir are not the only Canadians who have a legitimate shot at the podium. Kaitlyn Weaver of Toronto and Andrew Poje of Kitchener, Ontario are in strong position for an Olympic medal after their second place finish at Skate Canada.
In the men's competition, Patrick Chan of Ottawa, was dominant as he nailed down two quadruple jumps early to destroy the field.
In pairs action, the competition was won by the Italian duo of Stefania Berton and Ondrej Hotarek with Meagan Duhamel of Lively, Ontario and Eric Radford of Balmertown, Ontario finishing in third spot. Meanwhile in the ladies, competition, 15 year-old Julia Lipnitskaia captured the top podium spot.
