Feb. 20, 2018, 1:02 a.m. (ET)

In 2006, Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto won the first Olympic ice dance medal for Team USA in 30 years, a silver. Meryl Davis and Charlie White followed, winning silver and gold, respectively, in 2010 and 2014. In 2018, it was Maia and Alex Shibutani's turn. Sitting in fourth place by 0.02 points after the short dance, their free dance to Coldplay's "Paradise" put them over the edge and onto the podium for their second bronze medal in PyeongChang after competing in the team event.
