Meryl Davis and Charlie White will try to capture the first-ever Olympic ice dancing gold for the U.S. in the free dance today at Iceberg Skating Palace.
They’ll skate last in the competition, which you can see LIVE on NBCSN and on NBCOlympics.com starting at 10 a.m. ET.
Davis and White are your leaders going into the free dance after earning a world-record short dance score yesterday.
But while it’s one thing to be expected to win the gold, it’s another thing to actually do it.
Their training partners and defending Olympic champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada are second in the standings, and can certainly take advantage of any trouble Davis and White may run into.
Virtue and Moir will skate 17th, third-to-last in the remaining field of 20 dancing pairs.
