14708: Olympic Pairs Skaters Engaged

A silver medal victory has led to the promise of a band of gold for Olympic figure skating pair John Baldwin and Rena Inoue.

A performing pair since 2000, the duo skated around their growing feelings for each other for over two years before becoming an item. A wedding date has not been announced.
