(6/6/14) - Olympic ice dance champions Meryl Davis and Charlie White announced today they will not compete in the 2014-15 figure skating season.
"We're so grateful for the support we've received through this truly amazing year in our lives," Davis and White said. "Trying to stay in the present, we've decided not to look too far ahead regarding our competitive careers. We'll be taking the 2014-15 season away from competition. We will not make any further decisions until a later date."
Michigan natives Davis and White began their partnership 17 years ago and are the most-decorated ice dance team in American history. Together they have won the last six U.S. titles, two World Championships (2011, '13), five consecutive Grand Prix Final gold medals and the 2010 Olympic silver medal. Undefeated the past two seasons, Davis and White capped the 2013-14 campaign by becoming the first American ice dancers to win an Olympic gold medal at the 2014 Games in Sochi, Russia. They also won a bronze medal in the first Olympic Team Event alongside six of their teammates.
