At the ages of 9 and 8 respectively, Davis and White began formally skating together, but their start actually goes back further than that. Growing up skating at the same rink, White had noticed Davis skating during a free-skate event and told his mom that she was the best skater he had even seen. Little did he know that they would be partnered together years later. Over the course of the 17 years they've skated together, the pair has gone on to become six-time American ice dance champions, Olympic silver medalists and the first Americans to win two World Championship titles.
