As one of the most well-known and beloved figure skating pairs in recent history, there’s nothing that Davis and White can’t accomplish together. They have won Olympic gold at the 2014 Winter Olympics, where they also took bronze in the team event.
They have a huge number of championships and medals, and they have also crowned World Champions on two separate occasions. Not only did they achieve a high amount of success, but they did it over a long amount of time – the two are the longest-lasting figure-skating pair to come out of the States, competing together for more than ten years.
Irina Slutskaya doesn't like to sit still. After winning the World Championship in 2002, she did it again. This time it was her home city of Moscow. She's one of the most decorated Russian figure skaters of all time, and that's really saying something.
She's collected two Olympic medals, six World Championship medals, nine European Championship medals, and nine medals from the Grand Prix Final. With fourteen medals weighing her down, you'd think it would be a little more difficult for her to pull off a triple lutz-triple loop combo – but she was actually the first woman in the world to do it.
Irina Slutskaya - Now
Though she was given the opportunity to perform for the Champions on “Ice show, “Irina Slutskaya decided to return home to Russia after an extended period in the U.S. Once she returned to her home country, she took to hosting a variety of reality shows on national television, such as “Stars on Ice,” and “Ice Age.”
A few years after, she starred in “Hot Ice,” a Russian soap opera about figure skating. She was an ambassador for the Winter Olympics in Sochi in 2014. She was married twice, first to Sergei Mikheev and then to Alexei Govyrin. She has a total of three adorable children.
Meryl Davis & Charlie White - Now
While the two don't compete together anymore, there are still plenty of ways to see Davis and White together on the ice. They announced that they weren't going to compete any longer in 2017, but they still perform together in a number of different shows. While the two have been attached at the hip since they started skating, they never became romantically involved.
They both have relationships with others. After dating him for six years, Davis got engaged to retired figure skater Fedor Andreev. White has been married to Tanith Belbin since 2015. The two still work together to create some stunning figure skating programs.
Before Shizuka Arakawa won the gold medal for Japan, it was Midori Ito who was setting the international stage for victory for the Empire of the Rising Sun. Ito, who hails from the city of Nagoya, was the first female figure skater ever to achieve seven triple jumps in one competition. But having that small accolade wasn't enough for Ito.
Not only did Ito win the 1989 World Championships, but she also went on to win the silver at the Winter Olympics three years later. She is also one of the most winning names in the NHK, an international competition hosted in Japan every year.
