Olympic figure skating ice dancers and world champions Meryl Davis and Charlie White began their skating journey together when they teamed up in 1997. After winning gold at the INDY Challenge pairs and ice dance competition in 1998, the two went on to win their first national gold medal at the intermediate level in 1999. Ten years later they won their first U.S. championship title which opened the doors for them to earn a spot on the 2010 US Olympic Team. They won silver in Vancouver and may be the best hope for the United States to win gold in figure skating in Sochi in 2014.
Davis and White hold the record of skating together longer than any other ice dance team from the USA.
