This Olympic ice dancing pair had to scrap a move that could be confused for a sex position.

Team Canada is in the driver's seat to win the Olympic gold medal at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, On Sunday, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of London, Ontario won the ice dance short program, and Meagan Duhamel of Sudbury, Ontario and Eric Radford of Winnipeg, Manitoba won the pairs free skate for a total of 20 points. The routine included an "edgy" move that resulted in Virtue having her legs over Moir's shoulders in a sexual position.
Too hot for the Olympics? That brought the Canadians final score up to 73, well ahead of the competition.
"We wanted to make a bit of a different statement".
An adjustment has been made to the routine in an attempt to make it more family-friendly - a change the pair were expecting heading to Pyeongchang.
"We knew that taking the ice at an Olympic Games again meant that we needed to have a different style".
Before the Games kicked off, Moir deftly addressed the decision to nix that particularly crotch-y element by saying "when we slowed it down and looked on the video, it wasn't aesthetically that lovely of a position".
However, the new PG version - which was due to be on display in the team event ice dance free dance in the early hours of Monday morning - saw the hold last for just a fleeting moment before Virtue dipped one leg down and dismounted.
Nagasu became the first American woman to land a triple Axel at the Olympics, cleanly hitting the jump at the start of her programme to gain a season's best score of 137.53.
Virtue explained that the pair liked that the move made a statement. I think what we felt is even more special. "That is the joy of the Olympic Games".
She also admitted the pair changed things up over a perception that the Olympic judges would be particularly strict, and perhaps not as welcoming of, well, the insinuations.
