Interview by Vladislav Luchianov

This is the short interview
with the U.S.National Champions,
U.S.Olympic Team members
Meryl Davis and Charlie White. They are very busy now nevertheless, they are so kind and accepted our short interview offer.

VLAD: Meryl,Charlie,in the first place I’d like to congratulate you on your U.S.National Champions title!

MERYL/CHARLIE: Thank you very much!

VLAD: Could you believe you are the National Champions again?

MERYL/CHARLIE: We’re very excited to be able to call ourselves two time National Champions. It’s been a great year, so far but something about the national championships is a very moving and emotional experience.

VLAD: You are one of the main pretenders for the Olympic medals. What do you think about it?

MERYL/CHARLIE: Being a contender for a medal in Vancouver is very exciting, but we really are focused of delivering the best performances we know how, everything else is out of our hands.

VLAD: Your friends,Tessa and Scott, are the National Champions too. What did they say you after the final results?

MERYL/CHARLIE: Tessa and Scott are so supportive. We recieved text messages from them all week long, cheering us on. We support each other in any way we can and having them as training partners is really something special for both Charlie and myself. We’re a very fortunate group of people in Canton.

VLAD: How did you celebrate your medals?

MERYL/CHARLIE: We had a great time at the Nationals with friends and family, but there is so much work to be done before we head out to Vancouver that the celebrations are being kept at a minimum. It is, however, such an honor and very exciting to have had the week we did in Spokane and we so appreciate the support of our country!

VLAD: Thank you so much for your skating!Best of luck at the Olympics!

MERYL/CHARLIE: Vlad, Thank you very much for your kind words!
