SOCHI —

Americans Meryl Davis and Charlie White, considered by many to be the favorite in the ice dancing short dance event, said they feel fantastic and strong after Tuesday’s practice.

Davis (@Meryl_Davis) and White (@CharlieaWhite) have been ice dancing with each other since they were 10 years old -- something that should play to their advantage when the figure skating (ice dancing short dance) begins Feb. 16.

You can see the live broadcast of the figure skating (ice dancing short dance) on NBC Sports beginning at 10 a.m. The event will be rebroadcast in primetime on NBC beginning at 7 p.m.

The official United States Figure Skating Twitter account (@USFigureSkating) provided fans with a bit of a behind-the-scenes look at Tuesday’s practice. Check it out.
