Bloomfield's Charles White and Meryl Davis will be considered the favorites among the teams competing for coveted spots in the Sochi Winter Olympics during final tryouts in downtown Boston this weekend. 

The dynamic duo won the silver medal for ice dance at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada, and are five time U.S. Champions. The goals are high for this pair, that in 2011 became the first American team to win the World Ice Dancing Championships.  

"I think, definitely Charlie and I put a lot of pressure on ourselves and we always have," Davis recently told Channel 4. "I definitely think the expectations are a lot greater going into these Olympic Games in terms of what other people expect from us, but we expect so much more out of ourselves, I think that we don't allow the expectations or outside pressures to play a huge role."

The final Free Dance competition will be broadcast live from at TD Garden in downtown Boston at 3 p.m. Saturday on NBC. Saturday's broadcast should also include the pairs free skate championship and the ladies free skate championship, according to the official schedule.
