Meryl Davis Responds To 'Sad' 'Nobody Is Consistent In Figure Skating' Articles

Meryl Davis Responds To 'Sad' 'Nobody Is Consistent In Figure Skating' Articles

Meryl Davis has taken to Twitter and Instagram to call out some articles that were written about the state of the sport of figure skating.

USA Today wrote an article on the sport where one judge was quoted as saying that, “The only person who is consistent in figure skating is nobody.”

That’s something that Meryl, her partner Charlie White, his wife Tanith Belbin White, John Coughlin, as well as JJJ, disagree with.

“The sport of figure skating is not as popular in the U.S. as it once was, that’s true. So many factors play a part in the apparent decline in popularity of our sport on the big stage- some reasons come from within the sport, some from the drastic changes in American pop culture over the last 2 decades. It’s a shame and we ALL hope a revival of the Golden Age of figure skating is on its way,” Meryl wrote on Instagram.

She added, “BUT ‘the only person who is consistent in figure skating’ is not ‘nobody’…it’s the ice-dancers. It seems a shame to read this morning’s article to find out that the years of world and Olympic medals we continue to bring home have been forgotten.”

Meryl Davis Debuts Her New Collection Of Vera Bradley Scarves & We Want All of Them!

Meryl Davis Debuts Her New Collection Of Vera Bradley Scarves & We Want All of Them!

We know what’s at the top of our Christmas list this year — the scarves Meryl Davis designed with Vera Bradley!

“We talked about creating a product that would be something I would use every day, so maybe a gym bag, but it didn’t feel like it fit as well,” the 28-year-old Olympic ice dancer dished to PeopleStyle about the collaboration. “I kept telling them all along that I wear scarves every day — no matter the season, I wear scarves and hats all year long [on the ice].”

Meryl continued, “When we’re training, sometimes I’ll tie [the scarves] around my waist, or I’ll have multiple ones on. I’ll be at the rink for like 10 hours, so not only is my neck cold, but my waist, so I’ll tie it around my waist and then I’ll have another one around my neck. It’s like keeping your body warm without having to commit to another layer.”

And like a pro, she even filmed a cute instructional vid on how to wrap your scarves Meryl-style. Check it below!

Meryl is also pictured below at the 36th Annual Salute to Women In Sports in New York City earlier in the month.
