Meryl Davis & Charlie White Aren't Retired From Ice Dance At All

Meryl Davis and Charlie White might not be competing in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, but they’re definitely not retired.

The reigning Ice Dance Olympic champions won’t be competing in the upcoming games, but aren’t talking about retirement from the sport at all.

“We are not retired – we are just not competing at the Olympics this year,” Charlie had to clarify in an early morning interview. “That’s as far as we are willing to go.”

He adds about feeling an itch to go back into competition, “So many of our best memories come from those experiences, but the moments we were at competitions and watching everyone … if we felt we should be out there or not, ultimately, and pretty much every time, we came down to the conclusion that coming back to competition was not the right thing.”

“I think we are really proud of the journey, as a whole,” Meryl shared. “Things didn’t always go perfectly, but I’m really proud of the way we were able to learn from our mistakes, pick ourselves back up and, ultimately, I think that’s a really big component that led us to the top of the Olympic podium.”
