ROAD TO SOCHI
Davis and partner Charlie White – the 2010 Olympic silver medalists – are the most decorated and longest-tenured ice dancers in American history. Partnering with White three years after she first started skating, Davis has won a record six consecutive national titles and five straight Grand Prix Final titles with her partner. The first American duo to win a world championships gold medal, Davis and White earned their second world title in 2013, followed by a win at the 2013-14 Grand Prix Final. Most recently, the pair garnered its sixth national title – ensuring another opportunity to win Olympic gold and cement its status as the greatest ice dance team in U.S. history.
