University of Michigan students Meryl Davis and Charlie White became the first American ice dancing pair to capture Olympic gold with their second record-setting performance on Monday (Feb. 17) at the Iceberg Skating Palace. All three American teams, featuring five U-M students, finished among the top 10, with U-M alumnus Evan Bates and his partner, Madison Chock, placing eighth, and Maia Shibutani and Alex Shibutani finishing ninth.

After recording a short-dance record score on Sunday (Feb. 16), Davis and White bested the Canadians' record with a score of 116.63 to give them the gold medal with a 195.52 total. The U.S has claimed only four Olympic medals in ice dancing, with two of them belonging to Davis and White, who also claimed silver at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
