Indoors, American pair Meryl Davis and Charlie White won the gold in figure skating’s ice dance, finishing just ahead of longtime training partners and rivals Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada. It was the first Olympic title in the event for the United States.
Davis and White began skating together in 1997, and on the biggest day of their career, they were nearly flawless. The American pair won the silver in Vancouver in 2010, while their Canadian rivals won the gold. The two pairs train together in Detroit and are both coached by Marina Zoueva.
