Maia and Alex Shibutani are Olympic figure skaters at the top of their game. The duo have been in the public eye for years because of their incredible talent at such a young age, but also because brother-sister teams are uncommon in the sport. With 12 years of skating together under their belts, these siblings have competed together all over the world. They just won the National Championship and are competing at the World Championships the moment this episode is going live. ESPN called them stunning. The US Olympic Team describes them as incredibly dynamic in and outside the rink. On top of all of this, I just think Maia and Alex are some of the most genuine, interesting, and fun people I’ve ever met.
