Figure skater Tessa Virtue is getting her own Barbie doll.

Barbie has announced that as part of their "Role Models" series they will make a doll modelled after the Canadian figure skater.

Her doll will feature the red dress she wore in the free dance at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games. 

Virtue and her partner Scott Moir ended the Pyeongchang Games as the most decorated figure skaters in Olympic history, with three gold and two silver medals.

The "Role Model" dolls are part of Barbie's 60th anniversary and International Women's Day.
