US Olympic Figure Skating Team - Dance

February 5, 2010

Meryl Davis & Charlie White - 2010 US Gold Medalists (in 2009 -2010, they have been Gold Medalists in everything they've entered!! Grand Prix Final, Cup of Russia, NHK Trophy, Nebelhorn Trophy, Four Continents, 2009 US Nationals, Skate Canada International) WOW!!
Here's their Free Dance from the 2010 Nationals:

For dancers, the first two minutes of the program aren't very graceful, they seem rushed and like they are running through the program. It's hard to describe. Overall it was a good dance program. Virtue and Moir won the Candian Nationals in January with a total score of 221.95, Davis and White won the US Nationals with a total score of 222.29.
According to the TOTAL SCORES of all the events, this is the ONLY event the American's totalled higher than the Canadians in!! (and only by 0.34!!)

Tanith Belbin & Benjamin Agosto - 2010 US Silver Medalists, Withdrew in 2009, 2004-2008 US National Champions, 2001 - 2003 US Silver Medalists.

Unfortunately there is no video for Belbin and Agosto on the internet (at least that I have managed to come across) They did compete in the 2006 Olympics and were the Silver Medalists, but I can't even seem to find their Free Dance from that on the internet!! GRRR!! So we move on.

Emily Samuelson & Evan Bates - 2010 US Bronze Medalists, 2009 US Silver Medalists.

Again, there's no video. Looks like we will have to wait and see how good they are come February 19th!!
