SOCHI, Russia -- Through 17 years of grueling practices, of defeats and victories, Meryl Davis and Charlie White insist they've never considered parting ways.

A perfect pairing, they were nearly flawless at the Sochi Olympics, and on Monday they became the first Americans to win an ice dance gold medal.

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada, the 2010 champions, took silver, while bronze went to Russia's Elena Ilinykh and Nikita Katsalapov.
