OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Add another title to Meryl Davis and Charlie White's impressive collection.
The Olympic silver medalists and 2011 world champions won their fifth straight ice dance crown at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships on Saturday. That matches a record held by four other couples, including Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto. Wasn't even close, either, with Davis and White scoring personal bests for both overall score (197.44 points) and free dance (118.42) for a dramatic routine to "Notre Dame de Paris."
Madison Chock and Evan Bates were second (175.91) and Maia and Alex Shibutani finished third (174.21).
Earlier Saturday, Marissa Castelli and Simon Shnapir overcame a major error to win their first pairs title.
