Americans Charlie White And Meryl Davis Threw Down Literally The Greatest Ice Dancing Performance Of All Time
I’m not going to sit here and pretend to be an expert on ice dancing. Apparently ice dancing is different from figure skating in that throws and jumps are not allowed and spins must be performed together. Think of pairs ice skating as an extension of singles skating, while ice dancing is like ballroom dancing, but on ice. Got it?
So here’s the great thing about the run that gold-medal favorites Charlie White and Meryl Davis (USA) just threw down in the free dance: You don’t need to know anything about ice dancing to know that their program was absolutely fantastic and deserving of the top score. In fact, their combined score gave them the highest-points total ever in an ice dancing event with 195.52:

Video of the run should be up shortly. It’s absolutely worth your time, even if ice dancing isn’t your thing.
This is the USA’s first gold medal ever in ice dancing. The final standings:
