On Sunday evening, February 19, 2006 during the Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy, U.S. ice dancing pair Jamie Silverstein and Ryan O'Meara skated in part to Sweet The Sting during the Original Dance portion of the Ice Dancing competition. They basically used the very beginning and end of the song. Silverstein & O'Meara finished 16th in the original dance, which places them in 17th place overall. The ice dancing event concludes with the Free Dance on Monday, February 20, 2006. You can find out more about this pair at, where you can also find out the other two songs they ice danced to in addition to Sweet The Sting. Many thanks to Alisha Parker for first telling me about this, and also to Alessandra, Adrienne, Jeff Lilliquist, and Melissa C.
