Davis and White grew up 10 minutes apart in Michigan and their parents were good friends. They were partnered in ice dance 16 years ago by a local coach. Davis was just 11 and White was 10. They won a silver medal at the U.S. Junior Olympics their first year together.

"We've grown together and know each other so well," Davis said, after winning their first national title five years ago.

They began winning international competitions when they were 21. They made their first Olympics in Vancouver in 2010, two years later. They skated better than they ever had in their lives and won silver. Canada's Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir won gold.

Davis and White have won two world championships gold medals since Vancouver. They have not lost a competition in almost two years, after Virtue and Moir nipped them in the 2012 world championships in Nice.

In a supreme performance at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Boston three weeks ago (their sixth U.S. victory), they not only scored their personal best free skate but actually finished with the highest possible score for their routine. This included a perfect component score, which measures the artistry of their performance.
