Ground-breaking figure-skating gold medalist to coach national team

Chinese pair Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo claimed the country's first Olympic gold medal in figure skating at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, bringing the perfect end to their 20-year career on the ice as well as taking the country's figure skating to new heights.

The pair married in 2007 (but the wedding ceremony was not held until 2010) and the dynamic duo, which concluded its on-ice escapades with a series of shows in 2012, will welcome the birth of a child in September.
