Excerpt from interview with Tessa and Scott

On training with their toughest competitors

TV: We don't take it for granted. Walking into the rink and watching Meryl [Davis] and Charlie [White] train the way they do, they always work hard. You can't slack off. You see that. It's inspiring. It's also comforting to have people going to the same thing. There are so few people that truly understand what our lives our like...It's a very interesting dynamic. When we step on the ice we're competitors, and yet we support each other. We want to compete against the best. We want Meryl and Charlie at their best and they're looking great, so they will be.

Delay gives figure skaters more time to prepare for World Championships (Freep): excerpt below

The showdown between Virtue and Moir and Davis and White is expected to be one of the most exciting story lines at worlds this week in Moscow. The other will be Olympic ladies champion Yuna Kim's return to competition after a year off.

No American team has ever won the gold medal in ice dance at the world championships.

"We're not too concerned with making history at the moment," White said. "We're really more concerned with doing our best, getting to Moscow, practicing hard while we're there and competing our best. The most important thing for us at this point and time is to let our skating do the talking and try to enjoy these moments."

In addition to Davis and White, the Arctic FSC is home to the U.S. silver and bronze medalists in ice dance, siblings Alex and Maia Shibutani, and Madison Chock and Greg Zuerlein. Both teams will be making their first appearance at senior worlds.
