More Love on Ice

In China, news is finally sinking in that the country swept gold and silver in the pairs figure skating, the first time ever.
While it was a known fact that gold medallists Zhao Hongbo and Shen Xue were married since 2007 and are now hinting about settling down to have a baby, the silver medallists had an announcement to make -- they too are a couple.
There were questions after Pang Qing and Tong Jian finished their routine and Tong kissed the ice.
Originally he explained to the media that he was so swept up in the moment that he pucked up on the ice.
"Actually I wanted to kiss Pang after the free skating competition, but I didn't find her by my side," Tong was quoted as saying by the China Daily newspaper Wednesday. "Many fans who have cared about us have asked us about our relationship... I want to announce that we are in a relationship with each other."
Pang and Tong are both 30, and had missed the podium in Turin in 2006, finishing fourth.
Now the next question is... will there be wedding bells soon?
