Ice dancing finishes up, read all about the athletes here

The ice dancing competition in the Olympics wrapped on Monday, with gold going to Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada and silver to Charlie White and Meryl Davis of the United States. We have biographies available for all four skaters, as well as for Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto, who came in fourth, and Emily Samuelson and Evan Bates, who came in 11th.

The ladies’ skating competition kicked off last night, with Korea’s Kim Yu-Na crushing the other hopefuls with a 78.5 score on her short program. We have a biography available for her in Biography Resource Center, as well as for the second and third-place finishers from the short program, Japan’s Asada Mao and Canada’s Joannie Rochette, the latter of whom skated her heart out in honor of the recent passing of her mother. We also have bios for Team USA’s Rachael Flatt and Mirai Nagasu, who skated well enough to make the top ten and stay in medal contention.

And finally, we have a biography available for second-place men’s finisher Evgeni Plushenko — but we’re pretty smitten with his platinum medal as well.
