Olympic Figure Skater Meryl Davis Wins ‘Dancing With The Stars’

Meryl DavisMeryl Davis joins the list of athletes who have won ABC’s ‘Dancing With the Stars.”

Davis was crowned champion of the 18th seasons Tuesday night, joining Apolo Ohno, Kristi Yamaguchi and Shawn Johnson.

The Olympic ice dancer and her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, beat out finalists U.S. Paralympic snowboarder Amy Purdy and actress Candace Cameron Bure, who is married to two-time Russian Olympic hockey medalist Valeri Bure, who also spent 10 years in the NHL.

Davis’ latest trophy will be added to a case that already features a 2010 Olympic silver medal and 2014 Olympic gold and bronze medals — all of which she won with ice dancing partner Charlie White. White also competed on the 18th season of the ABC show, but was eliminated last week.

White and Davis were the first U.S. skaters to win gold in ice dancing at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
