Even though Kim Yuna’s name fills me with glee…
Brother and sister team Maia and Alex Shibutani made their senior national debut last month, and although they didn’t get the gold medal, they did win the silver, and racked up an impressive score of 173.18 points.
“It’s easy for us to forget that we are first year seniors,” Maia shared. “We wanted to be really prepared and make an impression.
Alex added, “It’s a clean slate when you move up to senior, and we wanted to make sure that our impression was very strong. We wanted to cleanse ourselves of the junior level right away, and I think that we did a good job of pushing ourselves every day.”
Strong impression for sure. I don’t really follow ice skating, but I wish these two the best of luck as they continue their senior career.
