But it could have just as well been named over three years ago. Since the last Olympic Winter Games ended, three ice dance teams have clearly reigned supreme in the United States and just as equally been a consistent presence on the international stage. All three have won national titles over the past four years. All three have medaled at each of their eight grand prix assignments from this Olympic quadrennial. And all three have a world championship medal of some sort. This is by far the most decorated, and impressive, group of ice dance teams the U. The first was in Three years later, they secured Olympic gold in Sochi to further cement their place in history.

I thought I’d be better than I was. I fell over once. It’s very technical; it’s the way you hold yourself, the positioning of your feet.

Virtue was seven and Moir was nine. Former long-time coach Paul MacIntosh affectionately recounted how they would tell people they were dating, all the while being so shy they barely spoke, or even glanced in one another’s direction. But they were ‘dating‘ at age nine and seven, and I think Scotty broke it off. And he would say that’s 19 or 20 years of regret,” MacIntosh laughed.

By Cady Lang Updated: February 8, 4: So perhaps it should come as no surprise that many of the figure skating and ice dancing pairs at the Winter Olympics are couples both on and off the ice — after all, partners that skate together, stay together. Both skated with other partners beforehand but what will make this Olympics even more special is that this will be the first games that the pair will be competing as a real-life couple. In an interview with NBC , Evan shared that he thinks this Olympics will be momentous for the both of them.
Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue, Team USA ice dancing While Madison Hubbell and Zach Donohue are no longer together, the pair dated for two-and-a-half years despite initially not liking one another as partners on the ice. Ahead of the intense preparation for the Winter Games, the ice dancing pair decided it was best to split up. We had to ask ourselves what was more important, our on-ice partnership or our off-ice relationship?
And we were both very clearly said the on-ice partnership is No. And both couples live and train together in the same house. Penny Coomes and Nick Buckland, Team Great Britain ice dancing The British pair are a couple on and off the ice and have been skating together since According to Shape , Nick said that their relationship has helped the couple focus on their goals as competitors.
The pair are both ice skaters, but compete separately; Ondrej, who was born in the Czech Republic, now skates for Italy alongside partner Valentina Marchei, while Anna skates with Luca Lanotte; both will be competing for Italy at Pyeongchang, although Ondrej and Valentina will be performing in figure skating pairs while Anna and Luca will compete in ice dancing.

Figure skating has a long, sometimes-controversial history as one of the most-watched Olympic sports. Who doesn’t remember the Tonya Harding—Nancy Kerrigan scandal? And the drama continues: Although there’s no official rule that says the skating federation has to base the Olympic team roster solely on the results of Nationals, it’s true that Nationals usually does determine who goes to the Olympics.
USFS has only disregarded this rule a few times in history, a famous example being in , when USFS gave a spot on the Olympic team to Kerrigan over Michelle Kwan who placed second in the National Championships, despite the fact that Kerrigan didn’t compete in Nationals at all that year due to her now-infamous injury.
You know that feeling when you’re midway through doing something — maybe listening to a nostalgic song, maybe dancing — and some fundamentally huge penny drops in your head?
The Olympics is one of the usual places to look into when putting together the ensemble for “Dancing with the Stars,” and this is the case for this year too. It is no other than Mirai Nagasu, who wowed everyone by being the first from the U. Nagasu is straightforward when it comes to her plans to join “Dancing with the Stars” I would like to be on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ because I want to be a star,” she said.
This year will be an all-athlete edition, so the stakes are higher, and the competition is tougher. Nagasu’s fear on ice also makes her perfect for “Dancing with the Stars. She pointed out that it is not about the gold medal. What it is truly about are the people and their journeys. As for those who are in consideration for “Dancing with the Stars” , Katz said that they are ” percent” considering anyone “that you’re thinking about that when you’re sitting at home at night watching the Olympics that you’re loving that you can’t wait to see.

Though a court quickly tossed out Simonds’s victory, and she eventually ended up conceding to her Republican opponent, it’s not the only time an election came down to a single ballot. Though a one-vote win is rare, it has happened before. On more than one occasion. Here are 10 other elections where every vote really did count.
United States House of Representatives elections occur more frequently every two years with more seats since , with between and than any other electable federal office in the country. So it only makes sense there would be more close House calls than those for President, where Bush squeezed by Gore in Florida by a certified count of in , or the U. S Senate, where a two-vote margin led to a revote in a New Hampshire election. But only one time in the 20th or 21st century has a single vote made the difference in roughly 18, House elections: Smith snuck by incumbent De Alva S.
Oddly, the only modern instance of a United Kingdom parliamentary election being decided by a single vote also occurred in , when Conservative Henry Duke eked out a victory against Liberal Harold St. Maur in the South West England city of Exeter. Maur, the challenger, originally won by a four-vote count, but following an electoral petition and a series of subsequent challenges, the incumbent Duke maintained his seat at the House of Commons table by the very slimmest of margins , to Morton finished with 51, votes out of , —or, just enough to receive a majority, and avoid sending the decision to a vote in the hostile, Whig-controlled state legislature, where he almost certainly would have lost.

Dancing on Ice
It was really no surprise that the three figure skaters in the competition had the strongest opening week, as their natural skills on the ice translate well to the ballroom. But historically, football players and other types of athletes have used their natural drive to greatness to push even harder and start to rise up and make things even more competitive.
View Story We did see a tightening of the field this week, as some of the other competitors made a run at the figure skaters, but with only four weeks total in the season, they’re going to need to work even harder if they want to supplant them.
Diversity founder and Got to Dance judge Ashley Banjo made his debut on Dancing on Ice earlier this year. Some naysayers said he wasn’t “qualified” to judge the contestants, but those people are.
We’re going to tread carefully here, because figure skating controversies tend to quickly devolve into nationalistic finger-pointing by people who only have the faintest idea of what they’re talking about. Probably only a few people in the world actually have the knowledge to say something remotely definitive about this. But here, we can raise a few questions that might be helpful in considering the issue more thoughtfully.
Before we get there, though, it must be said that Moir did not appear to be complaining. He was simply offering his impressions about how the two pairs’ Russian coach, Marina Zueva, divided her time. He was hardly accusing her of anything nefarious and actually praised her for her efforts. This happens all the time at the Olympics: An athlete is asked a question, he responds to it honestly, and then that is turned into something that it was not intended to be.
That creates a disincentive for athletes to talk honestly, which leads to more boring press conferences. We want to try to avoid doing that here. But his comments do raise some issues that are worth discussing 1.

Second Star Lionsgate The rise of dating apps such as Tinder and Bumble has meant that fewer people are getting together on the dancefloor. However, British broadcaster Channel 4 is looking to reverse this with a new La La Land-influenced entertainment format produced by All3Media -backed indie Second Star. Two complete strangers will be taught one half of a dance routine and then will go on a date where they have to dance.
Once the couples have completed their dance date, they will part still not yet having spoken a word to each other, but will hope that they have done enough to warrant a second date. We are delighted that Ashley Banjo is coming to Channel 4 with this warm and charming series that sees couples brought together through the art of dance. Back in the good old days, three quarters of people met their partners on a dancefloor. I met my wife dancing; we really connected and got to know each other in dance class.
I want to bring a bit of old-fashioned romance back to dating — the magic that can be created without a word being spoken.

Considered to be one of the favorites to win the gold medal, the duo had to perform as Papadakis had the clasp on the back of her uniform break about 10 seconds into the routine and she struggled to keep her top from falling down. Though she tried valiantly, it was ultimately a losing proposition. Despite that awful luck and circumstances, she and Cizeron were still able to post a score of The free dance will be held on Tuesday in South Korea.
Papadakis received some instant sympathy from other skaters on Twitter: For something like a costume malfunction to hinder this moment for them is utterly devastating.
