Ice Dance

I came across this figure skating couple before they performed at Sochi and they are absolutely amazing. I wasn’t even aware that Ice Dance was a sport, I assumed there was only figure skating. Apparently it involves a lot more footwork rather than aerial manoeuvres and the couple must stay close to each other at all times, a lot like ballroom dancing on ice. Meryl Davis and Charlie White are the US competitors and are number 1 in the world. They managed to both set a world record and take home the first gold medal America has ever won in their category. They are mesmerising to watch, I have an immense amount of respect for the effort and practice they put into their art. And it really does surpass sport, it is like watching pure art.
