LANSING - Gold medal ice dancing duo Charlie White and Meryl Davis were at the Capitol in Lansing Tuesday. Governor Snyder presented the Olympians with a special tribute, recognizing them for their performance at the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

"Charlie's and Meryl's remarkable stories and lifelong collaboration won over the hearts of countless Americans, and we could not be more proud to call them fellow Michiganders," Snyder said.

White & Davis are from Royal Oak, Michigan, and train in suburban Detroit.

The Governor also recognized the achievements of Teadora Spremo. She earned a gold medal in figure skating at the Michigan Special Olympics. Spremo has been active in the Special Olympics for 5 years and volunteers off the ice.
