Ice Dancing Olympics 2014, Figure skating’s deadliest duos will team up in pursuit of winning gold in the Olympic ice dancing competition.
The newly unveiled team events are over in Sochi, but many of the world’s best figure skaters don’t enter the ice alone. After exiting the first three medal events with only a bronze to its credit, the United States holds its best chance at scoring gold with the dynamic duo of Meryl Davis and Charlie White performing in the ice dancing short dance and free dance.
Davis and White carried the nation to a bronze finish in team play by scoring 10 points each (the highest amount possible) in the pairs’ short dance and free dance. With nobody else holding them back, they now have a golden opportunity to claim their first-place prize.
They’re the strongest medal contenders, but two other teams will represent the U.S. in ice dancing. Here’s a look at all three duos vying for a podium spot.
