The precision in their routines helped them win a spot on the 2018 U.S. Olympic team. Scimeca and Knierim went on to become the first American figure skating pair in the games’ history to pull off a quad twist.

In the video, the couple glides across the frozen floor. One can feel the chemistry between the two when they come close to each other.

Knierim then picks his wife up and flips her up into the air. Scimeca gracefully spins around a couple of times before dropping into her husband’s waiting arms.

The couple has faced challenges in their life. In 2016, Scimeca was diagnosed with a rare gastrointestinal disorder, which upset their practice schedule for months.

It was a tough year for her as she received an official diagnosis and had to undergo several surgeries.

However, she was determined to return to the ice, and the couple resumed their training weeks after her final surgery.
