An Olympic champion, Meryl Davis had won the ice dancing event at the 2014 Winter Games with skating partner, Charlie White. In addition to their accomplishments at the Olympics, the pair had also won the World Champion title twice in 2011 and 2013.
Hailing from Michigan, Meryl Davis began skating at the age of five, after being taken to a local lake in the winter by her parents. After a few years of skating singles, she switched the ice dance at the age of eight. By 1997, it was decided that she would be ice dancing with Charlie White, by her coach Seth Chafetz.

With White, she had gained a significant amount of attention after winning a silver medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. A year later, the pair won their first World Championship title in Moscow.
Over the next few years, the duo earned several gold medals at the Grand Prix Final, and Four Continents Championships; they even won a second gold at the 2013 World Championships.
Still, it wasn’t until 2014, that their popularity exploded after they finished first for an Olympic gold in ice dancing at the Winter Games in Sochi. In addition to that, they had also won a bronze medal in the team event.
Early last year, the duo announced that they would be retiring from competition.
