A national TV audience was introduced last week to the “Shib Sibs,” the American brother-sister ice dancing partnership of Alex and Maia Shibutani, who finished second in the short-dance portion of the Olympic figure skating team competition.
The Shibutanis finished behind only Canada’s Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, the 2010 Olympic champions. The bad news: Virtue and Moir might be only the world’s second-best pair. France’s Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron broke their own world-record scores in the last major ice dancing competition before the Winter Games.
Like the Shibutanis, America’s two other couples, Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue and Madison Chock and Evan Bates, both won a U.S. championship.
