We told you about American figure skaters Chris Knierim and Alexa Knierim's love story on ice in these pages a few days ago at the start of the Pyeonchang Winter Olympics in South Korea.

Now, the couple are looking forward to celebrating the cutest day of the year -- Valentine's Day -- together, competing on ice.
Chris and Alexa will be taking to the Gangneung Ice Arena surface today for the figure skating pairs competition. And they are so looking forward to it particularly because they are the only married figure skating pair at these Winter Games.

“It is going to be a special Valentine's Day. One we might never have again,” Chris Knierim told USA TODAY Sports.

“We will have a Valentine's Day that no other married couple on the ice will have. It will be a most unique bond because there is no other pair competing at the Games that is married, so it will be one in a million,” added Alexa.

Here's cheering for a gold medal from the chilled out lovers!
