A two-time Olympian in ice-dancing, White (then Tanith Belbin) and partner Ben Agosto won an Olympic silver medal at the 2006 Torino Winter Games – the first ice dancing medal for a U.S. team in 30 years. Belbin and Agosto finished in fourth place at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games, which capped a career that also earned them five U.S. Championship titles, four World Championship medals (two silver, two bronze), and three Grand Prix Final medals (two silver, one bronze). Since retiring from competition in 2010, the pair has continued to skate together professionally.
