Cheryl Davis and Jacqui White known as “the moms” are the proud mothers of Meryl Davis and Charlie White who won yesterday the first ever olympic gold medal in Olympic Ice Dancing for the United States!
They scored 116.63 points in the free dance to finish with 195.52, 4.53 points ahead on Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada, who took silver.
“Meryl Davis and Charlie White’s relationship is much tougher than a marriage – how many people do you know spend ten hours a day with their wife?… To have such an enduring relationship there’s only one word to describe it – and that’s respect!“, said Jacqui White, mother of Charlie.
Meryl and Charlie’s amazing partnership started in 1997 when they were just kids and the rest is history! “99.9% of the experience is work and effort, there’s only a few minutes out on the ice that you’re doing your program – all of the rest of it is what Cheryl and I see,” said Jacqui.
“There’s no way that Charlie and I could have achieved what we have achieved, without our moms,” explains Meryl Davis.
P&G and its worldwide activity linked to the Thanks, Mom campaign gave Wella Professionals the opportunity to offer an unforgettable experience to Cheryl Davis and Jacqui White in the P&G Family Home, and also provide a great experience for many other athletes, and MOMS! Wella has created a place of total relaxation for the mothers and athletes in their salon, making it an oasis of peace in the heart of Sochi.
