Winter Olympics Moment - Truly an End to an Era

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
