Vancouver silver medalists Meryl Davis and Charlie White reclaimed the ice dancing crown Saturday at the world championships in London, Ontario, beating Canadian rivals Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir to win their second world title.
The American pair’s near flawless free dance earned them a season’s best 112.44 points and a more than four point victory over the field, putting them on track to sweep every major event of the year heading into the Olympics next February.
The win also gives the U.S. three spots in Sochi.
