But the saving rate fell to 12 year low of 2.4 percent, the lowest level since a 2.3 percent rate in September 2005. The low level underscores the fact that wage gains have only recently started to rebound following years of weak gains. That has forced Americans to dip into their savings to support their higher spending..
That’s something their coach, the legendary Marina Zoueva, has embraced. She coached Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir to dance gold in 2010, and their American rivals Meryl Davis and Charlie White to gold in 2014. She also coached celebrated pairs team Ekaterina Gordeyeva and Sergei Grinkov.
