The Shibutanis became the first U.S. siblings to win an Olympic ice dance medal. The only other siblings winning ice dance medals together happened in 1992, when France’s Isabelle and Paul Duchesnay claimed silver.

The Shibutanis’ free dance, set to “Paradise” by Coldplay, told their own personal story as the third installment of a trilogy.

Alex stated; “The lyrics of the song talk about a girl, and when she was young she had all these hopes and dreams, at a certain point, you know, these hopes and dreams seem out of your reach, like they’re unattainable. But the song then goes on about how she continues to dream, and believe in herself. Life goes on. That has been our mantra, continuing to believe in each other, and dream.”
