here is an article about Tanith and Ben's career. Nice quots from Meryl and Charlie.
“I think that Tanith and Ben still have a lot to give to ice dance and I think the professional world is a really great area for them to do it,” said ice dancer Meryl Davis, who trained alongside Belbin and Agosto for several years in Detroit.
“They both have such strong personalities on and off the ice. Tanith is really outgoing, Ben is also very outgoing and very funny and I think they bring that to the ice and so while they were able to do the serious programs, they were also able to do the programs that required a little more energy and originality.”
“He’s one of the greatest guys I’ve ever known – so funny and so nice,” White said. “I’m so thankful for having gotten to know him and compete against him and continue to be his friend because he is just one of the nicest guys and figure skating is really lucky to have him.”Growing up and looking up to them, it was amazing to watch them win the silver in 2006,” Davis said. “It was really exciting, I think not only for us, but for all up-and-coming American ice dance teams to know it was possible to make that podium and achieve that success.”
“They gave us the confidence to be fearless and be able to compete and know that even though we’re American we still had a chance to medal,” added White.
“You have to respect so much what they went through to get to that point – with a coaching change, changing up their skating style a little, Ben had been injured and they had a rough year before that,” White said.
“But they were hungry and they both have very competitive spirits and they went out there and performed their hearts out. It was too bad that the judges weren’t able to recognize that.”
