The Team USA ice dance teams just completed their competition season with the 2014 ISU World Figure Skating Championships at Saitama Super Arena on Saturday night (March 29) in Saitama, Japan and did pretty awesome in standings.

Siblings Alex and Maia placed 6th after a fantastic short program and free dance, earning a total of 158.57. Madison and Evan were just one place higher in 5th with 167.59 total points.
