For the first time in 12 winter olympics a Russian couple will not be on the medal stand for pairs ice skating.
Zhao Hongbo, Shen Xue - China
Pang Qing, Tong Jian - China
Robin Szolkowy, Aliona Savchenko - Germany
One of the American pairs; Amanda Evora & Mark Ladwig finished 10th. While that may not seem impressive, it was a career best for the pair. They may not have won a medal, but they completed a dream; seizing the moment and doing the very best job that you can. No one can ever ask anymore than that.
Congrats Amanda & Mark
