The first couple of Canadian speedskating went at it again on Monday. 

You might remember Charles Hamelin and Marianne St-Gelais from the 2010 Vancouver Games. They turned in one of that Olympics iconic moments when St-Gelais ran down to greet Hamelin, her boyfriend, after a gold medal turn in the 500m. They passionately kissed and both the smooch and the video of St-Gelais' excited in-race reaction went viral. She says people still recognize her more for that moment than for the two silver medals she's won. 

Cut to Monday in Sochi, when Hamelin recorded a gold-medal win in the 1,500m. St-Gelais was there again to cheer him on and then congratulate him in get-a-room fashion.
