Meryl Davis & Charlie White Discuss Their Return To Competition

Meryl Davis and Charlie White strike a skater’s pose during Airweave’s Road to Rio Olympic Countdown Event held in Times Square, New York City earlier this week.

Joined by Paralympic swimmer Jessica Long, Fencing Silver medalist Tim Morehouse, and Project Runway‘s Tim Gunn, the group toasted the Summer Olympic hopefuls.

Speaking with NBC recently, Meryl and Charlie opened up again about returning to competition.

“We would probably want to decide at some point during the [2016-17] season, so that we can be basically competitively ready, even if it’s halfway through the season or towards the end of the season,” Charlie shared. “Whether we get to any competitions doesn’t, I think, make as big of a difference. As long as we could have been competing. I would say that would probably make the most sense.”

He continued, “Whether we come back or not, it’s unrelated to what is definitely a very strong dance field. Whether it’s strong or weak, having accomplished what we’ve accomplished and our relationship with the sport, it’s about whether we feel fulfilled with what we’ve accomplished. We’re still figuring that out.”

Meryl added, “[Shows are] different enough that we would definitely need a lot of preparation to get back into competition mode. Despite a lot of preparation that would be needed, we’re still on the ice almost every day and still in fighting shape…This whole idea of whether or not you come back is completely new to us. It’s definitely possible, but we have no idea.”
