Charlie White and Meryl Davis: From kids to Olympic gold medalists


TOPICS:
, , , ,

It was more than 16 years in the making, and on Monday in Sochi it all paid off for Charlie White and Meryl Davis. The two won gold in ice dancing, topping Canadian rivals Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir in the process. It was the first ever Olympic gold for Team USA in the event.

White and Davis finished with a score of 195.52, while Virtue and Moir came in second at 190.99.

Most athletes have dedicated their entire lives to their respective sport, but rarely do you see two individuals rely on one another for as long as White and Davis have.

Following is a look at the gold medalists as kids, and how far they’ve come.
