Davis and White win ice dance competition, earn honor

Meryl Davis and Charlie White won the ice dance competition at the International Skating Union (ISU) Grand Prix in Quebec City, besting Canada's

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, their training partners and great rivals.

Davis and White are USA TODAY's Olympic Athletes of the Week.
Davis and White, the current world champions, skated an almost flawless short dance and took a .05-point lead in the free dance to beat Virtue and Moir, the 2010 Olympic gold medalists, 188.55 points to 183.34 points.

"The closeness of the points was will drive us even more," said Davis. "We work very hard every day but having Scott and Tessa there right next to us pushes us that much more."

I feel Weaver and Poje were undermarked especially in the component scores. They should have gotten five points more than the French team. The bias of the judges still exist from the old scoring system.
