Meryl and Charlie were awarded 107 points, a personal best, for the third and final portion of the ice dancing competition moving them into the silver metal position.

Ice dancing is a three part competition consisting of compulsory dance, original dance and free dance. It draws on techniques from both ballroom dancing and pairs skating but does include the throws and jumps common to figure skating.

Meryl is a student at the University of Michigan, majoring in anthropology. (Photo credit: NBC/USOC)
