JOURNALING: On April 30, 2011, American Ice Dancing Champions Meryl Davis and Charlie White did what no other U.S. ice dancing team had ever done. They won the gold medal at the World Championships. Skating in Moscow after the championships were moved from Tokyo because of the earthquake, the Americans found themselves just over half a point behind their training partners and current Olympic champions, Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir after the short dance. Skating last in the free dance, Davis and White knew they were going to have to give their best performance if they were going to capture the gold. Virtue and Moir had put up great marks, scoring 107.50 for their free dance, easily the best of the night. When Meryl and Charlie finished their complicated, passionate tango, they were clearly spent. They had given their all. Would it be enough? When the final marks flashed on the screen, I have to admit I started screaming and crying. They had bested their friends by just over 4 points to win the World Ice Dancing Championship by a final score of 185.27 to 181.79. And, to top off a fabulous evening, the bronze medal went to the U. S. brother-sister team of Alex and Maia Shibutani, in their first appearance at Worlds and gave coaches Marina Zoueva and Igor Shpilband a sweep of the medal stand.
