These Olympic skaters are the definition of sibling goals. Alex and Maia Shibutani are using their unique bond to try and capture the gold medal in Pyeongchang. The brother and sister duo have been skating together for 14 years, and definitely have a fun, fresh aesthetic when it comes to figure skating. Through their figure skating journey, they’ve garnered quite a social media presence and regularly wow fans with intricate routines set to contemporary tunes.
At ages 26 and 23, the U.S. duo finished at Sochi in 2014, but they’re looking for redemption at this year’s winter games, and have been perfecting and refining their skills for the past four years.
“We feel like we’ve leveled-up. I really think we’re peaking at the right time for the Olympics.” Maia explained to InStyle.
As dead set as the duo is on the gold, they also enjoy just getting to experience the competition with their fans.
“We see faces in the crowd that we recognize and that’s special,” Alex told PEOPLE Magazine. “I think a lot of athletes, well I can’t speak for everyone, but some people are really in the zone and we know how to be in the zone while also embracing the moment and looking around us and having these memories that we’ll have for the rest of our lives. … It’s just a special feeling and to be out there the two of us, that’s always special wherever we are.”
