Madison Chock: It turns out it’s an incredible feeling to become a world champion. I still can’t believe it, to be honest.

We have been going to this for so long, and we have desired it so much. The season was very unpredictable for us and taught us so much. About ourselves, about what we really want, and about what we are ready to do for it.

And we also felt the price of victory. Life has thrown us back so many times, and I am grateful for this experience because we would not be sitting here today if it had not been for our defeats.

We coped. Today it was such a stupid fall, but it only made our performance more emotional.

Evan Bates: We want to say a huge thank you to our coaches. If not for them, we would definitely have retired after Korea.

They took us into their group, although they didn’t have to; at that time, they already had the strongest American pair. It turned out that they gave us a second wind, a real renaissance in our career.

But the main thing is that they taught us so much, and this is not only about figure skating. Our school in Montreal is about values, human qualities, and true friendship.

And this is the most important thing that we got from our such a long career in figure skating.
